Family Night with Chick-Fil-A and the Rotary Banquets

It seems like just yesterday we were closing out May and looking into June!  And now here we are today at JULY 1st!!!!  It’s been a busy end of June and I am sure July will be the same.

Hosting Family Night at Chick-Fil-A

Earlier this week Smith & Smith, CPA had the pleasure of hosting Family Night with Chick-Fil-A at Waverly Place in Cary.  We enjoy doing this twice a year and always meet really nice families and kids.  This time we did a Summer Sponge Ball and decorate Colorful Piggy Banks.  We had a ton of families come to our table and ran out of the piggy banks within the first 30-minutes!  Thanks to all of our friends and clients who came by to see us that night.  We will host another night in the Fall 2016.

Rotary Banquets 2016-2017

This time of year also means that the 2015-2016 Rotary Year is coming to a close and the new Rotary Boards for Rotary International, Districts and Clubs will start over with new slate of officers.  Blake and I had the pleasure of attending the Rotary District 7710 Governors Banquet last week at North Ridge Country Club in Raleigh.   We also attended my own Cary-Kildaire Rotary Club Installation Banquet this week at NC State University Club.  Both events were well attended and really nice.  It’s so fun to celebrate all that has been accomplished in a Rotary year!  I am excited to see Susan Pruskin come in as our Cary-Kildaire Rotary Club new President!  She was a new member for me to Rotary several years ago and she is going to have a fantastic year!!!  Congrats Susan!   Thank you to My Girlfriend’s Closet in downtown Cary and downtown Apex for helping me with dresses for both events.  I wore a shiny silver dress to the North Hills banquet and last night a dark blue tulle and lace dress with the sleeve cut out to the NC State University Club.  MGC has a HUGE summer sale going on right now!  Tell them you read Beccasblog.com to get a special discount!

End of School Year

On a personal note, our boys have finished the school year and are now moving into 1st Grade and 4th Grade.  So crazy!  We were able to attend their school programs this week and are so proud of their accomplishments!  Trent received the MATH Award for his class again this year!  So proud!  Mark received his promotion certificate to 1st grade.  Both boys had excellent report cards!  We are so proud!  In the picture with Mark I am working a Yellow Silk top from J.Crew that I found at My Girlfriend’s Closet and in the picture with Trent I am wearing a lightweight summer sweater from Ann Taylor Loft, also from My Girlfriend’s Closet.

Family Night at Chick-fil-a Waverly Place

Owl Craft at Family Night Chick-fil-a

Owl Craft at Family Night Chick-fil-a

Each year, Smith & Smith, CPA proudly hosts the Family Night at Chick-fil-a Waverly Place in Cary, NC.   This is a night for us to interact with the community and engage with families and kids.  We get to pick a fun craft and have a section of the restaurant set-up from 5:30pm-7:30pm.   We typically have about 40-60 kids come by the table to make the craft during the 2-hour event.  It’s always a lot of fun and I try to pick a craft for Family Night at Chick-fil-a that is fun and cute, but also functional and one that I can stick a promotional label on for Smith & Smith, CPA.

For Family Night this January, we had a craft that featured a foam picture frame and all kinds of little owl & bird foam stickers for the kids to pick from.  Once the kids completed the frame, they were given a Smith & Smith, CPA label to put on the back that said “Whooo…Whooo…Whooo…Who Does Your Taxes?  Try Smith & Smith, CPA!  919-380-0600”.  Pretty creative if I do say so myself!   For the older kids, we had a cute Owl Craft that was pretty challenging with foam weaving and lots of stickers and parts!  But they turned out really cute and they also had a Smith & Smith, CPA label on the back.

Family Night with Tax Frogs at Chick-fil-a Waverly Place

Last Tuesday, Smith & Smith, CPA was proud to host FAMILY NIGHT at Chick-fil-a Waverly Place.

We’ve been sponsoring the Family Night event for several years now and typically act as the host at least twice a year.  We were originally set to host the last week of January, but snowy weather had us running for home and we had to reschedule.  So on February 4th, (Bob’s birthday) we set-up our table and worked with kids who were there to have dinner and participate in Family Night.  I had put together a really cute green frog craft that I found at Michael’s Arts and Crafts.  The green frog was made out of a paper cup, along with a few other pieces. To make it ‘tax/CPA related’ I printed off circle stickers with our business name and a sticker for the front that said, “Jump into Tax Season”.  It turned out to be a really cute little craft, very easy to make and fun to assemble with the kids.

 

Tax Frogs!

Our whole office came to Chick-fil-a that night to support and I was happy to have Alicia and her youngest daughter, Ava, there with me helping kids at the table.  All of the kids had fun playing together and we are very grateful to Chick-fil-a Waverly Place for inviting us to be part of their Family Night Series.  We gave away a Smith & Smith, CPA green tailgate chair (winner is Jackson Garrison) and also a Smith & Smith, CPA green cooler (winner is Cindy).  I will be contacting the winners this afternoon so they can come by and get their prizes!  

 

Fire kids & hero

Fire kids & hero

The Cary Fire Department ended up coming by the restaurant due to an accident (everyone was safe) and one of the firemen came into Chick-fil-a and gave red plastic fire hats to all of the kids inside!  He was so nice and it was great to see how much of hero Firemen (and fire women) are to kids.  I want to personally give kudos to the Town of Cary Fire Department for being so kind and for always being interactive with kids in the community.  Thanks to everyone who came out to support Smith & Smith, CPA at Chick-fil-a Waverly Place for Family Night!  We’ll be there again later this year.

 

 

Tax season is in full swing!  We are accepting new clients and the phones & emails are very busy with inquires for service and appointments are coming in strong.  Thank you so much!  We love working with all of our clients and we appreciate your business!  Thank you for referring to Smith & Smith, CPA!

Ceramic Piggy Banks at Chick-Fil-A

Kids painting Smith & Smith, CPA piggy banks

This little piggy went to market, this little piggy stayed home, this little piggy had roast beef and this little piggy went to Chick-fil-a Waverly Place in Cary, NC to get a fresh paint of coat!  That’s right…the ceramic piggy banks were BACK!  I was so pleased to be invited back to Chick-fil-a Waverly Place to once again have Smith & Smith, CPA host the Tuesday Night Family Night event.  We’ve done this a few times before and it’s really fun marketing event.   I took along 24 ceramic piggy banks, my paint supplies and some Smith & Smith, CPA marketing materials.

 

Piggy Banks out to dry

I went a few days early and set-up a small table in the foyer to advertise our event.  I thought I would be fine with 24 piggy banks but ended up running out in the first hour!  I had to turn several kids away and that made me so sad!  I love how creative all of my painters were this time.  I used a Sharpie Paint Pen to write “Smith & Smith , CPA” on one side and their name on the other side.  Last time I tried stickers on the ceramic pigs, but they didn’t work very well.

 

Sarah, Trent, Becca and Alicia

Thanks so much to Sarah Thacker of Thacker Law Firm for helping me out with the pigs.  She ran the blow dryer on the pigs (helped to dry all of that paint so that they didn’t make a mess in the kid’s cars on the way home).  We had a fun time talking with all of the kids and parents.  Thanks also to Alicia Angell (works at Smith & Smith, CPA) for coming by with her daughter, Ava, to paint a piggy bank.  See more pictures below from the event.
