I think any of our staff will say that we all look forward to our Christmas Parties. Last year we had our meal at the Brooks Hotel and it was fantastic, so we went with the same thing again this year and the Brooks of course did not disappoint. Once the meal part of the evening was over we made our way back to our shop for the rest of our evening. Gifts were exchanged(our staff really know us and got us the best gifts) and with Kyron and Mike running the mic during the Chinese gift exchange instead of me this year, it was way more entertaining.
We also occasionally get really sweet tickets to Flames games given to us (from our awesome suppliers) and what not, so this time we decided to have our staff and guests purchase entries into a draw for the tickets, with the proceeds going to the Brooks Food Bank. It was easy getting the staff to enter into the draw, we had raised $500 from all of the entries when we made the draw at the Christmas party. The winner realized that he couldn't actually make the game and donated them back so we did a quick auction which raised another $400! It was awesome to see our staff being so generous! We really do feel like we are all part of the Inphase Family!
The evening was a blast and I believe everyone had a great evening!
Denita, Jenn and I went over to the Food Bank to give them the donation, so of course we asked the manager there fo a picture!
