Events and Parties in February


February 2017 Business Events and Parties

Megan and Blake

I can’t help but get a LITTLE BIT excited when I look at my calendar for the month of February!  Not only is it my birthday month (YEA!!!) but it also has a ton of other fun, fun, and MORE fun things to happen!   One event that we look forward to each year is the Cary Chamber of Commerce Annual Auction & Reverse Car Raffle.  This will be held at Prestonwood Country Club on Wednesday, Feb 22nd.  It is always a super fun party, lots of friends and business clients, tons of good things up for auction and a chance to drive away in a BRAND new Car (is this the year for me…mabye!?!?!?)  One of my favorite tax clients and friend who works at the Cary Chamber, Megan Kervin, came by the office today to pick-up her taxes and took our Smith & Smith, CPA donations of 2 gift baskets for the Cary Chamber Auction. I kept it simple and YUMMY again this year with two big baskets of girl scout cookies from my friend’s GS troop.  We can’t wait for the party!

Art Ball 20!

Another event that we are deeply rooted in that is coming up on Saturday, February 11th, is the 20th Annual Art Ball for Cary Visual Art.  I have the honor of serving as Co-Chair again this year with local modern Cary Artist, Dan Campbell.  We are breaking the mold and taking the event out of Cary this year (Gasp! I know!!) and having it at the North Carolina Museum of Art.  The evening begins at 6:30pm and will include the following: Champagne reception, delicious culinary works of art by the chefs of Iris Cafe, dancing to live music by the Johnny White and The Elite Band, artwork by local artist, exclusive after-hours access to the Contemporary American Art Wing of the NCMA, short film to celebrate 20 years of CVA and complimentary valet parking!  I am so excited I can’t hardly wait!  I have my dress ready and picked up my jewelry, shoes and clutch today from My Girlfriend’s Closet in Apex and we are getting Blake fitted for his tux this afternoon.   I am very happy to have Smith & Smith, CPA involved again this year as a CVA Bronze Sponsor Sustainer.  My brother-in-law and his wife will attend the Ball with us too.  There are a few tickets left, so be sure to purchase today!  And shop in downtown Apex and downtown Cary at My Girlfriend’s Closet for a huge selection of gorgeous gowns, shoes, and accessories!

Mardi Gras with Cary MacGregor Rotary Club

Coming up at the end of the month on Friday, February 24th is Mardi Gras Kick-Off Fundraiser with the Cary MacGregor Rotary Club.  We have been going to this big party for about 6-7 years now and always have a blast!  They have changed the venue this year so I am excited to see how it all works out!  I am very happy to see that Life Experiences is one of the two beneficiaries for the event that night.  Blake and I are sponsors for the event under our Smith & Smith, CPA name so we have 15 tickets to share around with family and friends.  Stay tuned to see how it goes!

Harvey at the office


I will also get to see my parents & grandmother in a few weeks and celebrate a special friend’s 40th birthday! And don’t forget the day of L.O.V.E. with Valentine’s Day!!!!! Let’s go February!  I am READY!  And Happy 1-Week Birthday in the Smith Family to little Harvey!  Hard to believe we have already had her for 1-week!  Things are going well and she is learning about us as we learn about her.  She has been to the office off-and-on over the past week and had a chance to meet LOTS and LOTS of new friends!  She will meet a lot more people this weekend on Super Bowl Sunday!
