Unlike most Aware happy hours, adorning yourself with ironically humorous attire was highly encouraged at this year’s Annual Holiday Happy Hour and even earned 4 Awarians some pretty sweet prizes.
After the year-end company meeting, Awarians gathered at Toby Keith’s country bar to celebrate a successful 2013 and give all the Clark Griswold wannabes a chance to show off their holiday threads. Awarians enjoyed brews from mason jars, appetizers and selecting winners for the Annual Ugly Sweater Contest. This year we also had the honor of being joined by Sultan Ghahtani, Director of Central and West Sales at Sitecore. As the evening wound down, the Ugly Sweater Contest winners were announced and the coveted prizes were revealed for Best Ugly Holiday Sweater / Tiny Holiday Hat Combo, Most Understated Ugly Holiday Sweater, Most Inclusive Ugly Holiday Sweater and Best Ugly Holiday Sweater Reveal.
Here’s a snapshot of our fashionable holiday celebration:
