We have not done a Client Appreciation Party, however, we have done fun things like Rent a large Bus and invite past/present clients for a day out to a Ball Game (Brewers vs Cubs) -- which is always a hit because our fans are from both sides -- so it makes for an interesting ride home!

Great choice of charities, Sharon! Yes, we do host these and they are always well-attended and a GREAT time!

We do them in conjunction with a charity as well and I believe that is what is the spark that gets us the turn-out that we get as well!

Have fun on the 13th!

I don't... I don't even have parties at my house for friends! I do think about this, but somehow it's just not my style. There was a time in my life when I would have to host parties at my home in Paris, London and Abu Dhabi for 75+ almost on a weekly basis for my husband's job and I guess I got partied out!

No, it doesn't really fit my business model as buyers are a small percentage of my business.  I bought my investors a very nice Christmas present from Smith and Wesson though, so they know they're appreciated!
