Fiesta Bowling | 6th Annual Client Appreciation Celebration

posted on May 19th, 2014 | filed under: Uncategorized

On May 4th, Jeff celebrated his clients with his 6th Annual Client Appreciation Party at the AMF Eagle Lanes in San Marcos. The celebration had a Cinco de Mayo flair and more than 80 friends, family and clients joined in the bowling festivities.

The bowling alley was hoping with great music and lots of friendly competition in the 15 lanes designated for our guests. The energy and excitement was kicked up a notch as “cosmic bowl” started and the lights went down for glow in the dark bowling – the kids loved it! Guests enjoyed a yummy lunch buffet and beverages throughout the two hours of bowling topped off with churro flavored Cinco De Mayo cupcakes.

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.
