On Dec. 5, the lovely Panini Restaurant and red hot Club Red in beautiful Newport Beach, Calif., was the site of the 3rd Annual Telcombrokers Christmas Party. Sponsored by PAETEC, TelePacific Communications, Level 3 Communications, TSI, Dynalink and New Edge Networks, the event was bigger and better with approximately 70 attendees, including Telcombrokers employees, vendors, agents and their guests.
“We really had a good time; it was the best party so far,” said Debbie Ward, president of TSI and long-time Telcombrokers sponsor.
The popular casino night format was back with the each of the carriers sponsoring a craps, blackjack, roulette or Texas hold ’em table. It gave them a chance to “play” with agents and offer special giveaways like free drinks, gift cards and branded goodies. The sharply dressed crowd moved from table to table collecting raffle tickets for their winnings which were used at the end of the night for fun prizes like a laptop computer, huge gift baskets and the ever popular bottle of Dom Perignon.
“We hope everybody feels the love,” said Telcombrokers President Dominic Antonini, aka “Dom*Unique” from his place behind the DJ booth where he kept the party going with great music.
Before the party moved into Club Red for VIP bottle service and dancing, Nancy Ridge, Telcombrokers vice president, had a chance to thank everyone. “It is my passionate dream to create a strong, interwoven network of successful entrepreneurs and you all are here tonight having achieved that. We are grateful for and thank each and every one of you,” she said.
