What an incredible evening we had on Wednesday, March 20th! We held the grand opening for our beautiful downtown office and were overwhelmed with the turnout from our friends, family and business collegues!

 

 

We couldn't have done it without the help of our brokers, Kim and Matt, who believed in us enough to let our little team strike out on our own and make our downtown dream come true.

Our office partner, Laura Baldwin, is well - incredible. She catered the entire event, planned it, cooked all the munchies and taught us a think or two about having something fun to do. I wish I'd gotten a picture of her her S'mores bar! That was a major hit!

Another big hit with our guests was our carriage rides, courtesy of Sentinal Carriage -

 

 

Our guests had a nice 20 minute tour of historic downtown Tucson, too. My parents and in-laws really enjoyed seeing a slice of our downtown,

We'd be remiss if we didn't mention the wonderful downtown businesses donated to our raffle. Here they are, along with our winner's names!

FORS Shop - cool grab bag - Michael Bock
Agustin Brasserie - restaurant gift card - Melinda Cervantes
Hotel Congress - $30 gift card - Ross and Suzi Sheard
Stella Java - $20 gift card - Carol Brown Crews
Modern Fitness - gift card for 5 classes - Shawn Jackson

Wine from Cupcake Vineyards (donated by Laura Baldwin) - John Eisele
Sentinal Carriage company - 1/2 guided historic tour - Israel Navarette
HUB Restaurant - free ice cream certificates - Toby Marotta

Finally, thanks to the Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce for the official ribbon cutting!

We certainly kicked off our new venture in style! We're still floating on a high from the evening.
