On Friday, December 14, KCWiT celebrated the holidays at The Chesterfield in the Power & Light district! It was a jubilant evening filled with crafted cocktails and fun games. As each attendee walked in the door, they received five raffle tickets for a large pool of prizes including Nelson-Atkins memberships, giftcards to area establishments, and concert tickets.
The party was a great chance for meeting friends and making new business contacts.
It was also a good place for some friendly competition.
Attendees could win double the amount of raffle tickets by facing off against another attendee in a race to unwrap a gift containing five more tickets — but they had to wear oven mitts. Whoever opened their box first got to keep both sets of the raffle tickets.
The holiday party also featured a free photo booth with a shimmering gold background and plenty of props.
For the KCWiT Leadership team, the holiday party was the perfect time to catch up with volunteers and staff. We celebrated the successes of the year and talked about our plans for 2019.
