Sometimes in everyday life, you don’t anticipate being thanked or rewarded for a nominal task. I, of all people, forgot the power of an unexpected gift.
While working at Canlis Glass Gallery + Studio an event client reminded me of the simple act of kindness that words and a gift can bring.
How it all came together:
Rick donated to a Detlef Schrempf and Rise n’ Shine fundraiser by way of bidding on the Canlis Glass Party donation. (Side note: Rick works at Rise n’ Shine which is a great foundation for children and teens who are affected by AIDS/HIV. Check it out!)
Canlis Glass donates around the Seattle area to help aid in the monetary fundraising for many different non-profit organizations. What better bang for your buck than a kick butt party at the gallery with food and beverages provided by a catering company?
Rick saw the potential and snatched it up for his recent soiree. And what a party that was!
Just me doing “Damage Control’ in front of the Bamboo Installation at an event. Rick’s event, thankfully, didn’t need any of these defense methods. 🙂
Also for your listening pleasure is Patrick Meyer. I found him playing classical Bach on a guitar outside of the downtown Seattle Nordstrom one Saturday. I told Rick about him and he booked Patrick for his event. Here’s a listen. Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAhwS7wNzwg
