For the fourth year in a row, we invited all of our employees and their families to attend Family Movie Night at our headquarters in Coppell, Texas. This annual event is so important to deepen the connection we all feel to our colleagues. After all, if you love what you do, it feels great to have your “work family” get to know your real family – we like to say that blurring the lines between work and play is a good thing!!
More than 250 people gathered in our Gumby Café for a fun evening of kid-friendly activities, food, and a viewing of the oh-so-popular movie, FROZEN! The event was themed with all things “cool” – including a photo op set up with cute cutouts of the Frozen characters, Elsa’s snowflake cupcakes and Olaf’s snowman snack mix. There was also a pre-movie sing-a-long with two of the Frozen soundtrack favorites – “Love is an Open Door” and “Let It Go.” The kids loved it!
The activities weren’t contained indoors – it was perfect weather to enjoy even more fun out on our patio. There was face painting and glitter tattoos for all the kiddos (and the kids at heart!). Our very talented Store Replenishment employee Juan G. provided Frozen- themed balloon animals – a crowd favorite! The evening was filled with laughter, excitement and fun connections with colleagues.
