Paint Nite™ Spokane at Terra Blanca Winery and Tasting



Chris Bafus and Keith Radmaker from our Spokane office hosted a client appreciation evening that included wine tasting and painting with Paint Nite™ Spokane at Terra Blanca Winery and Tasting room in Downtown Spokane on December 7.  Clients were invited to come taste a selection of wines, enjoy some appetizers and desserts and paint a holiday wreath painting.

Paint Nite Event for Retirees


Jovie and Kathleen



Kathleen O'Connor from our Vancouver office honored several of their clients who have recently retired with a guided paint night event at the Marshall House.

Mother's Day Brunch - Spokane Office

Chris and Allison Bafus in our Spokane office held a Mother's Day Brunch on Friday, May 12th, at Masselow's Steakhouse at the Northern Quest Resort and Casino. They invited clients who are also mothers as a way to celebrate them for all they do and have done to shape their children's lives. Everyone enjoyed mimosas and an amazing brunch. Conversation was relaxed and new friendships were made....a good time had by all!

Open House and Lunch - Anchorage Office

Neal Martin visited his daughter, Avi Curry, in Anchorage in August, and they took the opportunity to connect with their clients by hosting an open house and lunch on Friday, the 18th. Besides having a chance to visit with many of their clients, Neal and Avi brought in a shredding truck for them. Quite a few clients took advantage of this opportunity...three containers were filled by the time the luncheon was over!

Dragon Boat on Vancouver Lake

In early November, Kathleen from our Vancouver office took a group of their clients, friends, and family out for a Dragon Boat ride on Vancouver Lake. The event nearly had to be cancelled due to a rather stiff wind...everyone got a pretty good workout rowing against it on the way back! Janna Brown, the coach for the day, and her helm, Steve Kala, gave everyone very clear instructions and lots of positive feedback. Janna and Steve are both coaches for Catch 22, the Dragon Boat team that trains on Vancouver Lake. It was an invigorating experience that resulted in some sore arms the next day!
