Fundraising Luncheon for SafeChild & 6th Annual Dorcas Thanksgiving Breakfast

During the past 24-hours, I have had the pleasure of attending fundraising events for two really amazing organizations.  Yesterday, November 8th, I was a guest of my friend, Virginia Anthony, at the SafeChild Annual Fundraising Luncheon.   The event was held at the Raleigh Downtown Marriott and there was 504 people at the luncheon!

Virginia and Becca at SafeChild

SafeChild is an amazing organization that was started 25 years ago with a mission of preventing child abuse and building stronger families.  Two different families shared their personal testimonials of how SafeChild has positively impacted their lives over the years.  Each table featured a centerpiece of a handmade blanket that will be given to a child who is being treated and cared for by the loving volunteers at SafeChild.

6th Annual Thanksgiving Breakfast for Dorcas Ministires

Today, November 9th, I attended the Dorcas Ministries 6th Annual Thanksgiving Breakfast, held at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary.

Dorcas Thanksgiving Breakfast

I think I have attended this event for at least 5 of the past 6 years and some of those years I have served as a Table Captain.  This year I attended as a guest of Nancy Seymour of Atlantic Tire.  Dorcas is one of my favorite organizations in Cary and the room was packed FULL this morning!  Dorcas serves those in our community who are facing a crisis and the personal testimonials shared this morning were very powerful and heartbreaking all at the same time.

Judy, Nancy and Becca

We are so thankful to have Dorcas here in Cary and for all the help they provide.  It is exciting to know that Dorcas Ministries will be celebrating their 50th Anniversary next year!  They have some cool events planned in 2018 to celebrate, so stay tuned for more!

Alison, Stephany and Becca

Gale Adcock Women Mean Business Breakfast

Women Mean Business

Travis, Gale, Becca and Stephany

This morning I had the pleasure of attending an event for my good friend, NC House Representative, Gale Adcock.  I was a guest of Travis Wright Colopy of Fit & Able Productions who was a presenting sponsor.  The event was called “Women Mean Business Breakfast” was held at SoHo Consignments in Raleigh (a nice change of pace for most of the networking events I attend).   Gale has been representing North Carolina in the State House for several years now and will be running for re-election in 2018.  I see Gale often around town and she is always so very friendly and takes time to stop and make people feel important.  She invited NC State Auditor, Beth Wood to speak at the business breakfast and Beth shared her personal story of going from a small NC farm town to being an elected official.   I hold both of these women in such high regard and appreciate all they do for our communities in North Carolina.  It was nice to see lots of friends and other networking partners at the breakfast.

Boosterthon FunRun Support

For the past two years, Smith & Smith, CPA has been a proud supporter of the Boosterthon FunRun at two Wake County Schools, West Lake Elementary and Oak Grove Elementary.

West Lake FunRun 2017

The Boosterthon is a fun way for the kids to raise money for their schools.  The kids are encouraged to ask family & friends to support them with a donation/per lap.   On the FunRun Day at their school, they join their other classmates in an active morning of running laps outside (weather permitting) to earn their donations.  It is a super fun activity and a great interactive way for the kids to support their school.  Cam & Brooke’s kids had their Boosterthon FunRun a few weeks ago and we were proud to see Smith & Smith, CPA on the back of the shirts.   They each ran 30+ laps at West Lake Elementary!

Oak Grove FunRun 2017

Track 1 at Oak Grove Elementary had their FunRun today and it was really cool to see Smith & Smith, CPA on the back of their shirts too!  They also let us hang up our company banner.   Track 2,3 & 4 at Oak Grove will have their FunRun on Sept 18th.  Best of luck to all the kiddos and the schools to reach their fundraising goals!

 

Cary Chamber Business After Hours with KB Homes

I used to have the pleasure of attending the Cary Chamber Business After Hours on a monthly basis.   Then my schedule became a little more complicated and I wasn’t able to attend them very often.  Last week I finally made it out to one!  It was held at the new KB Home site in Cary, near Crossroads Shopping Center.  I had my good friend & orthodontist, Alena Spielberg, meet me at the event.  We had a good time together touring the house and networking with the other guests.

Season Tickets at Koka Booth

Blake and I made the decision earlier this year to purchase season tickets at Koka Booth Amphitheater.  It has been such a fun experience with over 88 shows, concerts, movies and festivals to attend!  It works really well for us too since we live only about 5 minutes away!  The season felt like it was staring to wind-down as our last event was on Aug 12th…almost a month ago!  But it is really just staring to gear up again and there is a full season ahead for the Fall.

Rock of Ages Koka Booth with Christine & Tia

Last night we went to see the theater production of “Rock of Ages”, performed by the Theater Raleigh.  The weather was perfect and we had a great time with friends & family!  We have 5 more events there alone for the month of September!  It is going to be BUSY!

Summer to Fall?

Are you like me and ready to transition your Summer closet over to your Fall wardrobe?  If so, be sure to keep my favorite store in your mind…My Girlfriend’s Closet in downtown Apex!

I was there this week stocking up on some great seasonal-transition items for these upcoming Fall cooler days & nights.   Be sure to check out their great selection of trendy jeans, tops and must-have jackets!  Tell them you read about them in Beccasblog.com and get a special discount at check out!  Both tops I have on in the photos above are available for purchase at MGC!  Keep it real and ShopLocal!

Power Breakfast Networking and 5-Years Marketing Partnership Celebration

Triangle Business Journal

TBJ Power Breakfast #tribizpower

I started out very early this morning (as in I left my house before 7am) to attend the Triangle Business Journal Power Breakfast.   The breakfast networking event was held downtown Raleigh at the City Club and featured a 4-person panel on Community Banks and their role in our ever changing community.  Panel speakers were: Larry Barbour of North State Bank, Scott Custer of Live Oak Bancshares, Ray Grace who is the NC Commissioner of Bankers and Bob Hatley of Paragon Bank.

Gift from Delta Dental & Program of Guest Speakers

The panel was lead by Jason Christie, Market President & Publisher of the Triangle Business Journal.  The program focused on how community banks are amid an unprecedented consolidation trend in the US and one that has not been witnessed in more then two decades.  The panelist talked about the newly formed banks and how that is impacting loan activity, branch size & locations, and the key factors behind the consolidations.  All of our business clients at Smith & Smith, CPA have banking needs and I knew many of the bankers in the room as a result of networking friendships formed from the Cary Chamber of Commerce.  I found the program to be very informative and beneficial to understand more about the banking industry in North Carolina.

Maggie, Becca and Stephany

The program was sponsored this morning by Delta Dental of North CarolinaElaine Loyack, Director of Community and Public Relations for Delta Dental gave the opening remarks and shared a video about their Smiles for Kids program.  Elaine is a friend and client of ours at Smith & Smith, CPA.  Delta Dental provided a nice gift bag for all attendees that included a new toothbrush and multi-outlet car charger.

Elaine of Delta Dental

I attended the breakfast with my friend Stephany Connelly of AppleOne Employment Services.  I also had the pleasure of meeting Maggie Stroud, Alumni Relations and Program Coordinator for Leadership North Carolina, a program in which I have been interested in for many years!  Thank you to Brian Reid of Paragon Bank for taking a picture this morning of me with Stephany and Maggie.

 

5-Year Marketing Celebration

5 Year Anniversary for MGC and Beccasblog

So August 10th is the 5-year anniversary mark in which I have had a special partnership with Lois Cozart and her retail resale boutique in downtown Apex, My Girlfriend’s Closet.  Yes, friends, that is right…5 years ago Lois sent me that WONDERFULLY unexpected email asking me to partner with her on the most BRILLIANT marketing/promotion plan in the world!!!!  Ever since that day, I have been graced with the opportunity to be dressed by the stylist at My Girlfriend’s Closet for all of my networking & social events.  It has been such a crazy and fun 5 years!  I have worn all kinds of different styles, designers, colors, crazy shoes, beautiful jewelry, unique handbags and more!  It has been so much fun and we have both seen our businesses grow and thrive as a result of this partnership.  Thank you Lois for such a unique opportunity and I look forward to 5 more years!

Lunch at The Provincial

We celebrated together on Monday with lunch at The Provincial in downtown Apex.  This delicious restaurant happens to be a client of Smith & Smith, CPA and the food is crazy delicious!  Next time you are in downtown Apex, stop in to see Lois at MGC (and shop a little too) and then head down to The Provincial for a great meal.  Tell them Becca sent you!  And of course the pink lace dress I am wearing today is from My Girlfriend’s Closet!

RDU Impact on the Region

Last night I had the pleasure of attending an event at the RDU General Aviation Building in Raleigh called: “RDU: It’s Impact on the Region”.  The program was sponsored by First Citizens Bank and I was a guest of Liz Cantino.  The guest speaker was Mike Landguth, President & CEO for RDU Airport Authority.

Liz and Becca

 

His program was very informative about how many passengers go through RDU each year, the financial impact it has on our region, new & current flights/destinations, and what the future holds for RDU.  I really enjoyed the program and appreciate Liz inviting me to attend!  We have many clients at Smith & Smith, CPA who bank with First Citizens and I am so excited for Liz to now be on their team!  She recently joined their bank about 30 days ago and is in the role as Vice President in Business Banking.  She is in the Cary office off of Kildaire Farm Road, so right down the street from my office!  Congrats Liz!

Change in Plans

Yesterday afternoon I had a change in plans for a luncheon I was planning to attend.  Since I was already over in the Raleigh area, I called my good friend, Christine Johnson, and met her for lunch as an early Birthday celebration (today is her actual birthday).  We had a wonderful lunch at the new Seasons 52 at Crabtree Mall.  Oddly enough, Seasons 52 is part of the Darden Family Restaurant group, which also owns Red Lobster, where I used to work and where I met my husband, Blake!  I LOVE how they celebrate your birthday there…with a HUGE Birthday cake ‘tree’, plus a card and photo!  I’ll be back there for sure to eat and celebrate!  Thanks to Lois Cozart of My Girlfriend’s Closet Boutique in downtown Apex for helping me find this Diane Von Furstenberg dress!  It was a great dress for the hot summer heat yesterday.  Shop their store for great deals on awesome summer dresses and accessories.  Tell them you read Beccablog.com for a special discount at the register!

Happy Birthday Christine!

Cary Central Rotary Club Taste of Cary

Last Saturday, March 24th, was the Cary Central Rotary Club “Taste of Cary” and Casino Night.  Blake and I attended this event along with some other members of my Cary-Kildaire Rotary Club and really had a good time.  We tasted lots of good food from local Cary restaurants, bid on some cool auction items, visited with friends and played the casino tables.  This was a fundraiser for the Cary Central Rotary Club Foundation.  I hope they did well and raised lots of money!  Thanks to Lois Cozart and her team at My Girlfriend’s Closet for dressing me in the 3/4-sleeve silk wrap dress from the downtown Apex store.  They have their spring merchandise out so it is time to STOCK UP ladies!   Tell them Becca sent you to shop and get my special shopper discount on your purchase!

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!

Beach Cover-Up

I had the recent pleasure to do a short 3-day cruise to the Bahamas with some girl-friends.  We left on Friday out of Miami and went to Coca Cay and then to Nassau.  We had beautiful weather and super fun time!  I already had my summer clothes packed away, so I reached out to Lois and her team at My Girlfriend’s Closet in downtown Cary for a few pieces to take along on the trip.  I selected this great light-weight swimsuit cover up and it made our day at Nassau easy-and-breezy!  I also took along a dress for the causal evening dinner.  My Girlfriend’s Closet will be having their Spring Clothing Exchange on Tuesday, February 7th at the downtown Apex store location from 10:30am-5:30pm (no appointment needed).  And remember when you shop there to tell them that you read Beccablog.com for a special shopper discount!

The Gifting Tree 2016

Happy December!  It is time for the Annual Town of Cary Gifting Tree Project!  Once again, Smith & Smith, CPA is participating in this event and we went downtown Cary last week to decorate our Christmas tree.  I LOVE our location this year, we are right at the corner of Academy and Chatham Street in the heart of downtown Cary!  We are at the traffic light right across from Ashworth Drugs.  Our tree is a little different this year and is decorated with patriotic spirit as a reversed American Flag.  Many thanks to my good friend, Lindsey Dishman, for helping me come up with the idea!  I spray painted the top of the tree white and the bottom of the tree blue (we won’t talk about what my hands looked like once that was done!!).  Then I used red ribbon and bows for the top of the tree (for the stripes on the flag) and huge white snowflake ornaments (bought in Savannah, GA) for the white stars on the flag on the bottom of the tree.  I also have new solar lights on the tree to light it up at dark.  Please take a few minutes to use this LINK to vote for our tree. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/cqhnpy9  It is one vote per email, so you only have to vote once!  The winning tree with the MOST votes will get $500 for the charity of their choice!  We will be supporting Life Experiences again this year as our charity of choice!  So please VOTE!

Life Experiences Annual Christmas Party

Matt playing Santa for Life Experiences

Speaking of Life Experiences, last night was their Annual Christmas Party.  It is always so much fun and an event that my family looks forward to each year.  It is a covered dish dinner party and all of the sweet employees trade names with each other and swap gifts.   One of them gets to dress up as Santa Claus too and passes out all of the gifts.  This year Santa was played by Matt.  He was so happy and you can see the big smile on his face!  Trent and Mark helped to pass out the gifts too.  It is so important to me so see our children involved with helping and loving others.  During the party, Mary Madenspacher, Executive Director, passed the microphone around the room and everyone got a chance to introduce themselves and their families.  It is so sweet to hear them tell how much Life Experiences means to them and sometimes they say really funny things too!   I am so honored to serve at the Board President for Life Experiences this year.  Here is a great photo of our Board Members at the party last night.  Thanks to My Girlfriend’s Closet in downtown Apex for helping me shop for this beautiful sparkly silver sweater!  They have tons of great holiday wear so check them out for your upcoming Christmas & Holiday parties!!!!!!  Tell them you read Beccasblog.com to get a discount with your purchase!
