I just love being close to CEO's. The one I am pictured with here is client Richard Krulik, CEO of U.S. Luggage, makers of Briggs & Riley and SOLO Cases. We are at The Briggs & Riley Design for a Cure kick-off reception last night, Grant Gallery, Soho, NYC.
We welcomed top tier press, friends and colleagues to celebrate the launch of Briggs & Riley's first annual Design for a Cure auction. The celebrity decorated bags, showcased in spotlights, were the talk of the night! With a great turnout, fantastic atmosphere, good food and smiling faces, Briggs & Riley showed the world how a great company brands itself and gives back to the community as well.
Jim Lahren, Richard, Barbara Rogus from JDRF and Tatiana Grant all gave wonderful speeches. All evening people were itching to get to the auction site and start bidding, which is now live at www.ebay.com/briggsriley.
Because of the wonderful space, the event itself and the great teamwork of Briggs & Riley and HWH, the Design for a Cure event was a huge success as the auction is sure to be. Congrats and thanks to all!
