Thanksgiving 2016: The Event Team Gratitude Journal

In celebration of Thanksgiving, we took a moment to reflect on some of the things we’re most grateful for. Here are just some of the many blessings we’re counting this year:

Bill Yahres, VP Business Development

After 23 years at The Event Team I am still having fun!  I have amazing friends, a loving family and perfect health. The only thing better is realizing this each and every day.

Geraldine Caedo, General Manager L.A.

Personally, I am forever grateful for my friends of over 30 years whom I got to spend time with this fall. Some things never change and I’m definitely grateful for that. Professionally, I’m thankful for my team who, despite our “family” squabbles, are always loyal, supportive, and will take it to the streets for one another.
