It Takes More Than A Monsoon To Stop The 2011 Perry & Co. Summer Client Appreciation Party
Even the threat of a monsoon didn’t stop Denver real estate company Perry & Co. Real Estate Professionals’ guests from attending the 2011 Summer Client Appreciation & 40th Anniversary Party.
Threatening skies didn’t stop the guests at Perry & Co.’s Summer Client Appreciation Party at the Denver Botanic Gardens Tuesday night. Raindrops fell as Perry & Co. Realtors welcomed their guests, most of whom were well prepared with umbrellas and raincoats! “Maybe we should invest in Perry & Co. branded umbrellas,” quipped Barb Perry, one of the real estate company’s top producers.
This is the 3rd year in a row that heavy rains have tried to crash Perry & Co.’s Annual Client Appreciation Party. Guests and company agents alike were rewarded for not letting the wet weather dampen their party spirits though, as the rain stopped at around 6:30 and held off for the rest of the three hour 40th Anniversary celebration featuring dinner, drinks and live calypso music.
The 2011 July monsoons have left a very green and lush botanic gardens and guests exclaimed that the Denver Botanic Gardens were more stunning than ever in the evening light. A highlight of this year’s festivities were Allan Houser bronze statues on display throughout the Gardens. In addition, the Orangerie, greenhouses and Marnie’s Pavilion are all new since the 2011 Perry & Co. party offering brand new areas for guests to enjoy.
The theme for this year’s party was Perry & Co.’s 40th Anniversary, featured in the invitations, on signage, with table centerpieces, and a special anniversary cake. The cake was brought in after dinner with a special Jamaican-style drum roll from the Pan Jumbies Steel Drum Band. Once he had the crowd’s attention – especially the children who surrounded the candle-lit cake – R. Don Larrance, CEO of Perry & Co. thanked everyone for coming, and for being such wonderful, loyal clients throughout the years. Helping him blow out the candles, were Don’s twin granddaughters, Stella and Ruby, with proud father, and Perry & Co. COO, Jon Larrance watching on.
To kick off Perry & Co.’s next 40 years, agents and staff presented guests with the popular “Start Today” wristbands. Also showcased at the party were a kestrel, an eagle, a hawk and an owl – all visiting from HawkQuest, a non-profit organization that provides “raptor visits” to local events in order to educate and inform the public about these amazing birds of prey. The raptor handlers answered questions for several hours during the party.
As the 2011 Perry & Co. party wound down the skies grew threatening again while guests returned to their cars. A mere ten minutes after the party was over the Denver skies opened up again with torrential rains and lightening for a fifth consecutive night. It was as if the weather gods gave us a lovely three hour respite from the monsoon as a 40th Anniversary gift!
