December newsletter: Ho Ho Ho

Ho, Ho, Ho!

As we close out the year, celebrate with good food and drink at this year’s Holiday Celebration December 9th from 6:30 to 10 pm.  Given that we live in such a multicultural environment our theme centers on celebrating holiday traditions around the world.  Food from Mexico, Italy, India and Germany, wine from Romania, and Indian traditional dances are just some of the highlights of the evening.  To be held at Steve Scudder Photography and Digital Empire Studio in Rancho Cucamonga, this wonderful location provides ample room to network, dance, and dine with friends and colleagues.  Proceeds benefit Youth Hope, a nonprofit that helps homeless and runaway teens in the IE.  Tickets are $40 online or $50 at the door so register NOW .  

And while you are on the site, make sure to enter our Holiday Photo Contest for a chance to win a $50 Visa Gift card!  Get into the Holiday spirit and celebrate the traditions of the season online and on December 9th!

As professionals in the advertising field you have a lot to offer so why not become a MENTOR to our up and coming talent enrolled in our local colleges and universities.  If you have five (5) minutes to spare you can surely be a MENTOR.  Contact Christy Oaks, AAF-IE Education Chair at  It really means a lot to students when you take 5 with them.

In January our program will be a panel titled, “Brands that Rock.”  Eddie is pulling in folks from big name companies and brands to impart their views on branding and advertising.  Make sure to put it on your calendar for a really fantastic, informative EVENING program.

Finally, it’s getting close to ADDY time so start putting your entries together for the competition.  The ADDY Gala is March 11th at the Mission Inn in Riverside and we’ve included a few extra perks for your evening’s enjoyment so get your entries in and I will see you March 11th!

So, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanza, and Fericit Craciun!
