Presidents Club trip with Appirio and Whitney Fusion Events

When Whitney Fusion Events asked me to fly to Mexico to document an event they were planning, I jumped. Literally, don’t mind that I’m 8 months pregnant. You may remember the event I shot for her a couple months back (here is a refresher). Her team is talented, professional and it is so much fun to see what creativity arises… this Mexico trip was no exception. To reward their top sellers, Appirio (an amazing company, with amazing values... more to come on them) flew their top 20 or so employees down to Punta Mita, Mexico – to the St. Regis to be exact. Relaxation, fun, food, and some parties awaited. You can see by the images below that a great time was had by all…

Each night guests would retreat back to their room and presents were waiting for them – things like Toms footwear and eyeglasses, handcrafted Mexican platters, custom tee-shirts – these all provided by Whitney Fusion Swag.  The amazing company, Appirio decided to give back to Mexico… during the trip tables, chairs, ceiling fans and school supplies were donated to a local kindergarten. As we approached the school to set up these necessities - we learned that their power had been shut of just days before. It seems as if the school had owed almost a years worth of power, and there was no solution in site. Not only did Appirio immediately jump into action and pay their past year of power to get them current, and to get the power turned back on – but they paid for a year in advance. I cried… I am hormonal, but in the words of the principle, “we felt like we were forgotten.” It was an amazing thing to witness, I was HONORED to be there for such a powerful day.
