This morning we HMAers walked into the office a little tired from the FABULOUS Phoenix PRSA holiday mixer last night. Originally scheduled at the (outdoor) pool and bar at the Hotel Valley Ho, our party was moved into a swanky seventh-story penthouse that overlooked Camelback Mountain. Not too shabby!
The guests enjoyed yummy drinks and snacks like sliders (which were more like full size burgers – yum!), and people got silly with the party favors at each table. During announcements, current Phoenix PRSA president Karl Gentles closed out the year with a healthy report for our chapter, and handed the reins over to incoming president to our very own Abbie Fink. Event organizer Kari Mather gave away prizes for the raffle, in which proceeds will go into the PRSSA scholarship fund.
All in all, the party was a bubble-blowing, glove-wearing, hot tub-filling, sparkly top hat-wearing good time. It was a great way for Valley PR pros to unwind, enjoy the company of friends and colleagues and close out a great year for the Phoenix chapter. Now, on to 2010!
Many thanks to Kari for organizing such a fantastic event, and to everyone who could attend!
