Cool flashing sunglasses set the mood for "Saturday Fright Fever" -- just one of the gifts for our overnight guests staying for the Halloween package weekend.
The team members, left to right: Thomas, Richard, TipTop Marketing rep Brenda Truehaft, and more team members: Claire, Patrice, and Tina.worked assembly line style to get the gift bags stuffed with the swag.
A flurry of activity to get 250 insulated bags filled with tee shirts, hats, sunglasses, mugs, magnets and of course, Halloween candy. All of the items were logo'd for the occasion with the one-time special logo for this particular ball, and Brenda's company was the one who assisted us in getting that all done. Brenda is a true partner with us, even coming over to help us stuff the bags!
A close up of the mugs.
This video also shows their work in action, and the flashing sunglasses show up even better in video.
I hope you enjoy this behind the scenes look at what we do here at the Hawthorne Hotel to get ready for our biggest event of the year.
