Kids on jumper3rd Annual Jeff DeChamplain Client Appreciation Party

Last month we held the 3rd Annual Jeff DeChamplain Client Appreciation Party at San Dieguito County Park in Del Mar. Despite the initial fog, the location ended up being perfectly perched on a hill soaking up the sun as the afternoon rolled around. We had a great turn out of 75 friends and family members to celebrate the year in Mardi Gras style.Lunch Spread

The park pavilion was decorated with wonderful masks, tinsel and twirlies in purple, gold and emerald green. As soon as guests approached, they were adorned with beads and encouraged to nosh on the amazing appetizers and beverages. There were great family activities including a huge castle jumper and a craft table where the kids (and parents) could decorate their own Mardi Gras masks.

All the food was catered by friends and clients of Jeff’s, Richard & Laura DeBell, who cook and cater for friends and family out of their passion for food. And boy oh boy! the food was amazing!

As lunch came to a close, Jeff shared about his love for his work and serving his community. In appreciation, he handed out some great awards and gifts that included Charger and concert tickets, gift certificates for excellent local dining, massage gift certificates, Oakley glasses and cutlery. The awards for Most Referrals went to Nick Tonner, Carol Anderson, Andrew Felsburg and Jeff’s wife, Calu DeChamplain. The Perseverance Award went to two clients, Jacklin Hawe and the Connaughton family, who overcame numerous bank hurdles on their individual short sales.  The raffle again this year was fantastic and included gear donated from Oakley and massages donated by Robert Sherman.

Check out this incredible gallery of the day’s pictures taken by Mike Foster. We’d love to celebrate you too at next year’s Client Appreciation Party.  It’s always a great time and a fabulous way to spend an afternoon. Thanks to all those that came out to celebrate this warm and wonderful community.

Jeff and friends
