The CE Elves Spread Holiday Cheer!

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

We’re giving back!  To celebrate the spirit of giving during the holiday season, this year Corinthian Events volunteered to participate in the Robert F. Kennedy (RFK) Children’s Actions Corps’ gift giving program, Winter Wish.

Dedicated to Robert F. Kennedy’s commitment to the poor and disadvantaged, the Robert F. Kennedy (RFK) Children’s Actions Corps provides a diverse range of programs and services across Massachusetts to help children and adolescents manage past hurts, develop self-esteem and become contributing members of society.  Winter Wish is RFK’s annual gift program which strives to provide all 800 children in their care with at least one gift during the holidays.

With the hope of contributing to this impressive goal, each member of the Corinthian Events team sponsored a child.  And thus we took the role of elves!  We took a couple hours one morning and went on a shopping field trip to share our holiday cheer.  Everyone fulfilled their child’s wish list from paint sets and art canvas for children exploring their artistic side, to yoga mats and Nalgene water bottles for adolescents who participate in RFK’s therapeutic yoga program.  And if we do say so, we’re pretty awesome at being elves!

12 gifts are en route to the RFK Children’s Actions Corps headquarters in Boston this afternoon.  We are very happy we could be a part of Winter Wish, support the incredible work of RFK and its staff, and most importantly, help brighten the holidays for children in their care across the state.

And while we were gift shopping, we got a little carried away…

….and came home to the office with a Corinthian Events tree!

Breakfast with a Former Patriot!

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

Matt Light speaks at this month's New Boston Business Network breakfast

It’s not often that we find ourselves in the presence of a Super Bowl Champion (never mind someone that has won the Super Bowl three times!), however last week Courtney, Kait, and Caroline joined members of the New Boston Business Network to hear Matt Light speak.  As part of their “Fall Speaker Series Breakfast” the recently retired New England Patriots Offensive Lineman spoke on his experience in the NFL and lessons he learned on and off the field.  All three thought he was an excellent speaker and provided many valuable points on how to create a winning team.  Here are a few tidbits they took away from the breakfast:

  • Work Hard, Play Hard – It’s important to do your job and have fun while you’re doing it!
  • Surround yourself with positive, driven people to achieve your goals.
  • Lead By Example – Holding yourself and others accountable is the key to being successful.  Set a good example to employees, vendors, kids, friends, etc. and hope for good things in return!

Definitely great advice and all things that we at Corinthian Events strive to do every day!
