Everyone’s a Winner At Sacramento Executive Event
A big thank you to all of you who attended our latest Sacramento Executive event held Wednesday 21st at Il Fornaio downtown. At final count, you numbered more than 100! You can see pictures to judge the buzz. Thanks to Geof Lambert who took these ‘grip and grin’ photos. Really, that’s what they are called in the ‘industry’.
Pierre and I are truly honored that you choose to attend these events. You are the nicest, smartest, most entertaining and most fun people in Sacramento and over time many of you have become our friends as well as our colleagues. It truly is like holding a party and all of our fun friends show up and the discussions are passionate and real and challenging and mostly stay polite! And even better you guys are nice enough to help cover some of the entertainment costs! Pierre was very sorry to miss this one…and even sorrier to have to be at his corporate headquarters in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. But I know he appreciated the many people who asked about him.
Thank you to our long time sponsors for underwriting the event and keeping the entry fees reasonable. And thanks to those companies who generously offer up a selection of interesting prizes. This event’s prize trove was definitely for the snow buffs.
The lucky winners were:
2 lift tickets to Northstar – Compliments of Prosper Magazine
Susan Boyme – Revionics
2 lift tickets to Sierra at Tahoe – Compliments of Prosper Magazine

We’ll be contacting the winners shortly with details on how you can collect your prizes. Don’t forget to enter your business card at our next event. And help us out by RSVPing a little earlier next time – it saves you money and makes our life easier by better estimating food and space requirements.
We are thinking about El Dorado Hills for the next event, which for city dwellers like us is heresy, but we started Sacramento Executive to reach out to the seasoned executives moving to ‘the Hills’ and invite them to become part of the very interesting discourse and required heavy lifting surrounding Sacramento and its growth, pains and all. So maybe we need to take Mohammed to the Mountain (or at least the Hills). If you have fierce objections, let us know.
A bientot…until the next time.
The Sacramento Executive.
