2019 Managers Awards Party
by Community Relations Manager Dustin Portillo
Ladies and Gentlemen, Children of All Ages, and Managers of All Greatness, step right up where your talents will take center stage.
On Saturday, March 16, 2019 the Florida State Fairgrounds opened its doors to the Special Events Center to host our annual Managers Awards Party. This year, however, the venue was not quite the same. The space was terrifically transformed into a preposterously perfect party for the hardest working general managers ever! With stilt walkers, clowns, dancers, and even a real circus ringmaster, interactive circus-skill stations filled the event space with pie-in-the-face, feather balancing, tightrope walking, and there was even a photo with a real live PYTHON station! Food and beverage stations lined the walls with delectable delicacies from some of Tampa’s trendiest eating establishments.
One might think the evening was over when a 10,000 pound prancing ponderous performing pachyderm paraded in with everyone aghast! But no…names were drawn for a chance to ride this majestic beast. Blake Casper, CEO of Caspers Company, was the first to ride with his daughter Chapman.
To conclude the evening’s festivities, guests with winning raffle tickets walked away with a 58” flat screen television, a double BBQ grill and smoker, several gift cards, and many other prizes! Come one, come all… we’ll see you down the road at the next managers party!!
