Corinthian Events - Boston Event Planning News

We’ve added two new members to the Corinthian Events family – to learn a little bit more about them, keep reading!

Victoria Gillott

Victoria joined the Corinthian Events team in May.  Since graduating from Manhattan College in 2009, she has been on the hunt for the perfect job and is psyched to have found it with CE, back in her native Beantown!  Victoria worked on several events in New York City over the last few years and really developed a passion for event planning.  She looks forward to applying the skills she honed in NYC to upcoming events in the Boston area and learning all that she can from the highly skilled Corinthian Events team.  When she’s not helping plan all of your fabulous events, she hopes to be sitting under a palm tree somewhere.  If that isn’t possible, you’ll probably find her strolling around Boston in search of the city’s best cupcakes or enjoying a nice meal with family and friends.

Amy Smith

Amy joined the Corinthian Events team in May and is excited to be part of such a great team!  She graduated from Union College in 2003 and has a background in marketing and corporate event planning; her attention to detail and ability to work under pressure ensures that every aspect of an event is complete.  Amy enjoys working on all aspects of event planning from the transportation to the decor!  Amy is a native of Maine and enjoys skiing, the beach, being with family and friends and traveling.

Keep your eyes peeled for exciting new programs from our dynamic team!

Comedian Bob Marley with Courtney

This Bob Marley might not have dreads, but he’s got serious humor!  We booked and managed the Maine native, Bob Marley, and his comedic performance for the Asperger’s Association of New England’s annual gala in May.  The crowd was in fits of laughter for an entire hour!

Row, Row, Row Your Boat.

We are thrilled to be abound with summer outings – there’s nothing better than making sure that everyone has  fun!  A few weeks ago, we ensured just that – great weather (perhaps that was luck?), dynamic team building, and lots of fun for everyone as groups participated in a day of rowing and lawn activities at Boston’s Community Rowing.

Teams prepared for the water on the ergs.

The one-hundred and fifty guests were divided into teams of seven and set to embark on a series of competitions.  From assembling a boat to volleyball, bocce to sessions on the erg, guests spent half of their day on land engaged in various activities.

Out on the Charles.

Then it was time to hit the water.  Divided into rowers, coaches and coxswains, each team was debriefed on the appropriate signals to communicate while on the water.  A designated Community Rowing guide was on board each boat to direct and off the teams went, in a series of  heats to determine the fastest of the group.

Racing to the finish!

The finale of the day was a much needed barbecue with all the fixin’s.  Sausages and burgers rejuvenated guests as they had the opportunity to unwind with colleagues and swap stories from their trials on land and river.


On the Hunt

Corinthian Events - Boston Event Planning News

Last week, we designed and executed the best kind of summer outing, one filled with fun, camaraderie and an afternoon outside – a scavenger hunt!  The playground for the day was the North Shore coastal town of Rockport, where guests were required to explore the history, sights and culture of the town center while competing for points.

Teams competed to paint with watercolors the iconic Motif #1, the most painted building in the country.

Guests were asked to photograph their entire team inside the little Information Booth.

Guests were divided into twenty teams and armed with a backpack, a hunt booklet, a mascot and LOTS of team spirit. Teams then set to work for a three hour exploration of the town.  Posed with three types of questions: things to photograph, things to collect and things to do, the challenge was to use their time efficiently and their minds creatively.

Teams used the tools found in their backpacks (eye patches and temporary tattoos) to mimic pirates outside the Peg Leg Inn.

The second portion to the challenge was a race against the clock.  Teams were advised to make a stop at Front Beach to complete a task – to put up a tent.  Corinthian Events staff was armed and ready with stopwatches and tents to see which team could create the structure fastest!  Our staff was also stationed at Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester, where teams went head to head in elimination beach volleyball for Scavenger Hunt bonus points.

Teams raced the clock to erect a tent at Front Beach.

Inflatable team mascots were photographed all over town!

Guests ended at the Rockport Art Association where dinner and drinks were served while Corinthian Events staff busily tallied the scores.  Congratulations to the Hunter Green team who came in first place – we can’t wait til tonight for the next hunt!
