MVMNT Winter Social: SUCCESS

First and foremost, I want to extend my sincerest gratitude to the volunteers that turned the gym into a party goer’s delight: Bao, Hilary, Bethany, Kelly, Niki, Gentry, Jade & Kristy. While they cooked, these guys cleaned: Mario, Graham, Kiki, Hilary, Nayoung, Renata, Niki, Greg & Amy.

Mr. Juan Banda also deserves a tip of the hat for painting the 2017 goals board and jerk block station. Apparently, party people write in massive font?? But, if you weren’t at the party, we still want your goals up on the board. Hopefully, you can find a little space.

A special thank you to Jolly Old Saint Nick charasmatically played by Eric Woods.

Finally, thank you to everyone for coming to the party, donating so many coats (!!), bringing amazing food and drinks, looking absolutely stunning, making new friends, and being part of the MVMNT Family. We are grateful to have the opportunity to create special events like this for you each year.
