Denver, CO (December, 2008) - Neither cold, nor wind, nor predictions of snow kept away the crowds when Perry & Co. hosted its annual holiday lights celebration on the evening of December 3rd at the Denver Zoo’s Wild Lights. Over 1400 guests, a good portion of them children, were exuberant over the 150 animal-themed light displays set up all around the 38 acres of the Denver Zoo. “This is one of our favorite traditions,” said Don Larrance, President of Perry & Co. “We get to host a party at the Zoo with our clients and meet their families and friends. It’s become one of our yearly events - a good time for people of all ages.”
Perry & Co. rents the entire zoo facility for the party and offers hot cocoa and cider and holiday cookies inside the Gates Center’s Norgren Hall so guests can warm up before heading out into the night. Themed and animated lights dot the landscape and create surprises around every corner as visitors strolled the zoo’s paths. Santa usually stops by for a visit and the little ones know to come with their lists in mind. Twirling in the dark on the decorated old-fashioned carousel is a favorite of children and their parents alike.
For Perry & Co. Agents it’s a great way to deliver holiday greetings to clients and potential clients. Some agents even invite people who live in their farm areas or their children’s classmates. The staff is encouraged to invite friends and family, too. “I love to invite my vendors to this event as well,” said Lorrie Grillo, Director of Marketing. “It’s a way of saying “thank you” to them for their great service to our company over the past year.”
