On Friday, December 18, the All Points PR team gathered virtually over Zoom for our annual holiday party.
The festivities kicked off with an end-of-year highlights video put together by COO & Executive Vice President Lauren Izaks. From the International Franchise Association (IFA) Convention in February to virtual happy hours, “twin day” and office game nights, there were a ton of fun photos and moments to look back on together!
Then, President Jamie Izaks hosted the third annual APPR Awards alongside Lauren, honoring individual and team accomplishments throughout the office over the past year. An employee secret gift exchange and a Murder Mystery Zoom Party, presented by The Murder Mystery Company, followed the awards. The mystery was centered around a holiday train-ride theme, and each All Points team member was assigned a wacky character to play as the murder mystery unfolded. Many members dressed in costume to take it to the next level!
In the spirit of giving, All Points matched the value of the employee secret gift exchange to benefit a local food pantry. APPR donated $400 to the Self-Help Closet & Pantry of Des Plaines, a not-for-profit organization serving Des Plaines, Illinois residents with groceries and clothing during a time of need. They were the runner up in our PRo Community Project, an initiative providing pro bono integrated public relations services to Chicagoland nonprofits.
The holiday party served as a wonderful time for the team to celebrate with one another and gear up for the new year ahead. And, reflecting on the team’s unwavering commitment to positively impact the communities in which we live and work, All Points is proud to extend our support a time when it’s needed most.
