Celebrating Our Clients

posted on June 30th, 2015 | filed under: Loving the Lifestyle

photo 37th Annual DeChamplain Group Client Appreciation Party

On June 14th, we had our 7th Annual DeChamplain Group Client Appreciation Party at AMF Eagle Lanes in San Marcos.  We had a wonderful turnout of almost 90 friends and family members to celebrate the amazing relationships we have built over the last 13 years in business.

Guests were greeted at the door by Jeff & Calu then off to get their shoes and lane assignments from Jennifer. A special addition to the event this year was a photo booth with lots of fun props.  Guests donned purple hats, blue hair and big sunglasses – and everyone got to take home fun photo strips to remember the special day. There were a few other new treats this year including a massive candy bar, bowling tattoos and glow in the dark accessories for Glow Bowl. Guests noshed on popcorn at the lanes and a delicious buffet lunch was – the food was great! There were even massages donated to the highest scoring male and female bowler by massage therapist Robert Sherman.

Check out the incredible gallery of photos from the event – Photo Booth Photos | Event Photos

We absolutely love having this event each year as an opportunity to slow down and enjoy time with our wonderful clients and show our sincere appreciation.   Thanks to all those that came out to celebrate this warm and wonderful community of friends and family.

We look forward to seeing you all next year!
