Christmas Party at Property Partners Group

Friday, December 21, 2018

Our final intercompany competition was merged with our staff (and partners) Christmas Party. Held at Tobac Bar in the city on Thursday night 13th December, we had an amazing turnout and staff traded up from their work boots, hi vis vests and hardhats to black tie.

It was a fantastic night of high glamour, high stakes at the casino themed tables (and hilarious croupiers) and the evening was topped off by an auction of products kindly donated by some very generous suppliers. Our thanks to Placemakers for some gift vouchers; Carters for the amazing array of gifts including Bluetooth earphones; Power packs; waterproof binoculars and more; GFC for beer and First Aid kits: Michael Page for a bottle of Verve Clique that created a bidding frenzy (by the girls) and Platinum Electrical who seemed to have one of the most desired prizes of the evening (by the boys) when the bottle of Glenmorangie Whiskey sold for $20,000,000! Thank goodness it was monopoly money from the Bank of Property Partners.

The most surprising event of the evening was Design Partners winning the final competitive tournament to compete for the Annual Property Partners Cup. It really was a change in fate, with all bets on Karsten from Build 1 to take out the event, but Kristin held her nerve and won the grand final round to great delight of her team and the rest of us who thought it was going to be another Build Partners wash out!

And then there was a whole room dedicated to food with bespoke grazing and event styling by Floss & Bec for those not wanting to gamble or needing a pit stop between tables.

Overall it was agreed by all to be “the best night ever” and will be very hard to top next year.
