BlueTie employees, their family and friends gathered for an evening of fine food, festive drinks and special live entertainment. The party began with a social hour full of yummy hors' doerves and music from Ecstasy Sound followed by dinner of Mexican cuisine. Then our CEO introduced a surprise 'special guest' - musician Eric Lewis - who completely mesmerized the audience with his genius! Employees and guests capped off the evening with a tour of the venue to view the largest and most diverse collection of art in this region. This was truly a memorable event!
BlueTie employees celebrated the spirit of Halloween by dressing up in their favorite ghoulish garb. The annual Best Costume Contest awarded prizes for most creative, scariest and funniest costumes. As always, BlueTie employees showed off their 'true' spirits while enjoying a free lunch for all. Totally Spooktacular!
Over 80 BlueTie employees and their families gathered at Henrietta Town Park on August 25th to enjoy a rare but beautiful summer evening together. There was plenty of food and fun and even a dessert contest for our culinary experts to show off their baking skills. The park hosts a great playground and several ball fields which kept our BlueTie families busy while enjoying the warm weather. We are looking forward to Summer 2010!
On Thursday, May 7th, BlueTie participated for the first time in the United Way Day of Caring. Across the Rochester area, more than 9,200 people pitched in to help local schools and non-profit agencies. The BlueTie team of about twenty people worked at Senior Options for Independence, affiliated with the Fairport Baptist Home. The residents showed their appreciation with homemade brownies and cookies, and ever-present donuts. Although the weather was rainy and the work was dirty, we had a tremendous time doing gardening and washing windows. Everyone showed great teamwork and camaraderie, and are looking forward to participating again next year!
Despite the snow pounding down on the area, employees, friends and family members all gathered for an evening of food, relaxation and fun...Vegas style! The evening began with hors' doerves, socializing and a little piano music followed by dinner and the traditional employee address from our CEO. Then it was time to hit the tables and start spending those precious casino chips. The room was set up with a full array of casino games including poker, Texas hold-em, black jack, roulette, craps and more. Employees and guests capped off the evening with a tour of the venue making this another memorable holiday gathering.
Each year BlueTie celebrates the spirit of Halloween with food, fun, and costumes galore...and a little competition too. Employees competed in the annual BlueTie Costume Contest which awards prizes for the best costume in a variety of categories. You can see the creativity and innovative thinking of our BlueTie employees which generated some unique costumes from jokers to chickens (in various forms). BlueTie's 2008 Annual Halloween Bash was one worth remembering.
The 18th Annual JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge took place on May 29, 2008 at RIT and once again, BlueTie was among the long list of attendees. Rochester, NY set a local Corporate Challenge record with over 11,000 participants and 442 companies in attendance. Additionally, Rochester has the best 'per capita' participation rate for the series worldwide.
As expected, BlueTie employees showed their spirit and endurance both on and off the track. Over 40 employees attended the event with a company record of 19 participants including our very own CEO, David Koretz. David, along with representatives from each department, lined up for a 3.5 mile race determined to cross the finish line and get back to the tent for some great food provided by the Char Broil House.
