It was been quite the week for team HMA. First, we celebrated National Bosses Day this past Monday with a scavenger hunt for the ages. Next, we celebrated Abbie’s birthday Tuesday with a day trip to the happiest place on Earth – Disneyland!
After that was a week filled with media training and social media presentations to a client, S.M.A.C.N.A., and the ASU Lodestar Center for Philanthropy & Non-Profit Innovation, followed by one of our staffers falling ill (Beth), one being stuck in Yuma (Scott) and two meeting up with fellow Valley Libras for one heck of a party at the Vig (Abbie & Alison).
But, the real star of the week was the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale’s 6th Annual Uncorked & Unplugged event on Sunday, a casual yet sophisticated night under the stars with great food, great wine and great friends. We spent several morning hours with the great folks at 3TV doing a live remote as the event was set up, and then several evening hours with folks from the local media, marketing and business worlds as the event kicked off.
All in all, Uncorked & Unplugged was a hit – featuring more than 20 local restaurants, 30 wineries, a martini bar hosted by Blue Martini and a margarita bar hosted by San Felipe’s Cantina. While indulging with both food and beverage, guests also danced the night away with several popular local acts including retro ’80s cover band Rock Lobster, DJ William Reed, The Love Me Nots and featured performers from Casino Arizona’s Showstoppers Live!
And, when the evening came to a close, guests were able to take advantage of free cab rides home, courtesy of Hensley & Company and Scottsdale Insurance Company, ensuring all party-goers a safe trip home.
And now it’s time to conquer this week! Make it a great one!
