It’s been a tradition at ChemDesign to plan a holiday social and celebration after our team members have had the opportunity to enjoy their own family gatherings. On January 20th, over 160 employees and guests came together for an evening of fine food and company at Little River Country Club. Following the delicious meal including salmon, chicken, and tenderloin tips, prize drawings were held for the main gift giveaways.
This year, employees entered raffle tickets to win one of two LED televisions. Dennis left with the 65-inch LED TV and Tina took home the 50-inch.
Several other employees left with items for recreation. Tom was excited to win a kayak and plans to use it to spend time on the water with his grandchildren. While Ali had her heart set on the Nintendo Switch, she was very happy when her friend Christine won it. Event attendees are also predicting that Karl will be using his JBL Extreme Bluetooth speaker to listen to his favorite tunes before work.
An employee gathering would not be complete without the chance to win a trip. Ben will be taking his family and a few friends to enjoy a chartered fishing trip on Lake Michigan. Ben and his father both work at ChemDesign and every year they pool together all of their raffle tickets to increase their odds of winning this gift. This year, their strategy paid off!
We also do not want to forget about those who like to pamper themselves! Brad and Erica both won $150 spa packages to Elements Spa in Menominee. Erica won this package last year and loved it – so she was thrilled to win it again. Brad seemed a little surprised when his name was called as a winner, but deep down, we all know he is a gentle giant that likes the finer things in life.
Tony told us he loves to cook steak on his patio, so his new Weber gas grill will be put to good use. Speaking of food, Jeff has changed his life with healthy eating habits. His new air fryer, pressure cooker, and ceramic cookware will help him explore new healthy cooking options.
Finally, there were great prizes for people who relaxing at home. Jordan just moved into a new house so he was thrilled to win the $500 furniture package. Gretchen, Tina, and Chelsea all won oversized zero gravity chairs!
After all the time the social committee dedicated to planning this year’s holiday party, they were happy to see so many people attend. The social committee is busy working on our next event. If you have any ideas for consideration, please let one of the members know!
