What is your
company doing for a
holiday party this year?

“Our holiday party will be at the Fairmont Chicago. The theme will be ‘Evening of the Stars,’ and it will be like an Academy Awards ceremony. We also will hold a fund-raiser and auction to benefit the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Typically we raise anywhere from $15,000 to $20,000.”

Eric Wulf
Senior Manager
Chicago, Ill.

“We’ll have a catered party at my house and break into teams to play some really competitive games like Catch Phrase. We also like to do a group event that gives back to the community. Right now, we are considering serving dinner at a local soup kitchen.”

Laura Rednour
PRA Destination Management Inc.
Carlsbad, Calif.

“We just built a new office and want to showcase it for our clients, so we will have both customers and employees at our holiday cocktail party. We are in the process of creating a signature drink for the event featuring orange and white, our company colors. We’ll also have a musician, a lie-detector testing station, a blackjack table and a handwriting analyst.”
