We’ve had an outstanding First Thursday season this year and wanted to take a minute to thank all of our incredible partners, clients and friends for making it possible. Through the months of April through October 2011, we greeted roughly 1,000 visitors and donated approximately $5,000 to six local non-profits!
The evolution of PREM’s First Thursday events started a few years ago beginning at first, as an invitation to share more about our sustainable practices, culture and customer service processes. As the events continued and popularity grew, we soon realized these evenings could be an opportunity to give back to the non-profits in our community and spread the word about businesses in the communities we manage.
Through the months we’ve created art, given massages, sampled food, karaoke’d, danced, learned and of course – socialized. As the winter months roll in, we bring the PREM First Thursday celebrations to a hiatus but encourage you all to continue patronizing local businesses and supporting the non-profits that work so tirelessly for those in need.
Below is a shout out to our many partners – we hope to see you all again in the Spring, 2012!
