This year’s sfAMA Holiday Party was the perfect example of how the San Francisco marketing community yet again came together to share experiences, 2013 accomplishments, and support the Bay Area community. We are excited to donate 10% of our ticket proceeds to an organization that is close to all our hearts, The Make-a-Wish Greater Bay Area Foundation (sf.wish.org).
We couldn’t have had a better venue for this event than Bite Communications’ offices at Hills Brothers Plaza. Close to 100 of us celebrated with the gorgeous light show of the Bay Bridge in the background. While listening to guest DJ Rompa Rome, attendees enjoyed some good food and even better drinks. This evening wouldn’t have been the same without our Rum sponsor Zacapa (www.zacaparum.com), that kept us warm throughout the night with a delicious hot cider infused with their delicious rum. And as the party continued, our water sponsor, Hint (www.drinkhint.com), kept us hydrated with the best flavored water we have ever tasted!
There were some cool surprises along the way, such as a raffle where two of the main prizes were a beautiful $295 Tumi leather briefcase, sponsored by sfAMA’s own VP of Marketing Communications, Valerie Camarda (www.marketingsense.net), and a customized $125 built-to-fit shirt from gift sponsor, Trumaker (www.trumaker.com). Winners of our grand raffle prizes were Michael Fasman and Tselmeg Shponko, other winners included John Hudson who won a bottle of Pinot, Ken Acosta who won a bottle of Chardonnay, Manuel Arroyo won 2 tickets for our Multicultural Marketing event in January as did Amy.
Our Holiday celebration was complete with a fun Christmas photo shoot session by our talented photographer and sponsor Jon Wollenhaupt. Below are some photos taken at the event.Access Token not set.
