Mode5 reached a milestone on July 1, 2015 with our 13th anniversary in business. Every year, the month of July is filled with a variety of special things for staff to thank them and recognize their efforts and contributions to another successful year of business growth. We also pick a date to host an Anniversary Party to thank our clients for their business and give them an opportunity to meet face to face with the Mode5 team member(s) that they sometimes know only as the voice over the phone that handles their IT requests.
This year the party was held at the Belmont House of Smoke in the Ghent section of Norfolk, Virginia. Since Mode5 believes in the true meaning of a "business partnership” it is no surprise that the House of Smoke is not only a great place to eat, but also a great client of Mode5. The Belmont closed their upstairs for the exclusive use of Mode5 and our guests. Everything from the food to the service was outstanding and geared to create a fantastic experience for our guests and our team.
In addition to socializing, food, and drinks, there were flashing rings, glow light bracelets, puffer ducks, and yodeling green flamingos. Pool tables were open for play and some people played a "13 Questions About Mode5" game to win their choice of some of the funny "tchotchkes". There also was a drawing for one of 5 very nice door prizes. Every Mode5 client and employee of a client was eligible to participate in the drawing. The "IT" related door prize was an IPad Mini. The other 4 door prizes were gift certificates for Belmont House of Smoke, Changes City Spa, Norfolk Botanical Gardens, and The Hurrah Players. All four of these Norfolk companies are the best in what they do and Mode5 is proud to count them among their IT business partners.
The door prize drawing was held mid-way through the evening. At that time, our clients were recognized and thanked for their business and for joining the celebration. The founders and Presidents of Mode5, Matt Bakey and Luke Downing, were introduced and alternated drawing the names for the door prizes. Winners included representatives from ACCESS College Foundation, George's Seafood, Johnson Gardy & Teumer, Norfolk SPCA, and Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center.
We are excited that, represented among so many clients that joined us for the celebration, were our very first business client and our most recent client. The Mode5 team is looking forward to our 14th Anniversary Celebration in July of 2016. In the meantime, our goal is to continue to grow our business by providing the very best in IT consulting, products, and services to each and every business client in accordance with their unique needs and budgets. Here's to our clients, our team, and to all of our success!
