    President’s Corner November 2018

    Our 5th Annual Salute to Tourism was our biggest attended yet! Thank you to our nominating committee and a very special thank you to fellow Skalleague, Aimie Johnson and her team at the Florida Aquarium for a most memorable evening. Congratulations again to our members, Roberta Blum, Carol Eaves, Andy Brouillard and Dannette Lynch for your dedication and service to SKAL and Tampa Bay tourism.

    Everyone is getting excited about our Annual Holiday Party featuring a Silent Auction and Wine Pull at the Belleair County Club. Now is the time to invite your spouse, fellow colleagues and special guests to join for this festive evening. If you haven't yet, please be sure to get your wine and auction donations to Steven as soon as possible. We look forward to celebrating the holidays and the close of 2018 with our fellow Skalleagues.

      December Fundraiser 
     
     


    Dear Members and Associates:

    PLEASE BRING WINE OR AUCTION ITEMS TO NOVEMBER MEETING IF YOU ARE ATTENDING SALUTE TO TOURISM - I WILL COLLECT ITEMS THERE!!

    Our December Fundraiser and Holiday Party is scheduled for December 10th, 2018 (Registration is now open) and we're in need of auction and wine pull donations in order to make this a successful event. I
    f you work with wine vendors at your place of business, please consider asking them to donate a case of wine for this event - they can be creative - maybe do a mix and match in varietal and price point (a $15.00, a $40.00, or maybe a WOW $100.00 bottle); we only ask that each bottle be worth at least $10.00 retail. We also still need items for our Silent Auction!

     

    If you do not work with vendors, we ask that each member donate what you can; maybe you belong to a wine club or have a few high-end bottles around the house?? Maybe a very rare bottle that could be the featured prize of the fundraiser recognizing the donor? Attraction, Restaurant, Travel, Merchandise and Event Certificates are fantastic items to donate for our Silent Auction.


     

    At our holiday party last year, members appreciated the opportunity to purchase a great bottle of wine, already gift-bagged, for only $10. This year, the wine pull will be held at our December 10th meeting, in time for those holiday gift exchanges and parties! 

     

    Please bring your wine and/or Auction Item to the November meeting or contact me  to arrange a pick-up. Certificates can be mailed to SKAL Tampa Bay c/o  Steven Rodriguez, 14280 Passage Way, Seminole, FL 33776. We are excited to announce that our Holiday Party will be held at Belleair Country Club this year.

     

    Again, thank you all for your help in this important fundraiser for our Skål club. A really fun, yet useful - savory "toasty" prize could be yours!!

    President’s Corner July 2018

    SKAL Tampa Bay is really getting into the swing of things. Pardon the pun, but I only get to use it once a year. We had such a great time at TopGolf! It was a casual way to mingle with our members and everyone from novice to experienced was able to take a swing or two.

    A reminder to anyone interested in joining the board should join us Tuesday, July 31st at 4pm.

    Message me Colette@comecrworld.com   or Steven@OurCondo.com to let us know if you are attending.

    There is  no meeting in August so we'll see you again on September 10th at Holiday Inn Westshore - Tampa. Don't forget to invite your guests so they don't miss all the exciting events we have coming up! 

    Thanks! 

    Colette

    Young Skal is a wonderful opportunity for professional development in the hospitality industry, especially in Tampa Bay, Florida. The Tampa Bay Skal Club works to empower, support, and helps to develop the young professionals with the drive for growth and hunger for knowledge and networking. I was able to experience this first hand, having joined three years ago and actually partaking in running aspects of the Young Skal program for Tampa Bay.

    Personally, I’ve met intelligent and influential people in the industry who have given great insight. I was able to attend a national and two international congresses, learning about the industry in the USA and the North Americas, as well as meeting people involved in every facet of the industry all around the US, Canada, and Mexico. From these experiences I’ve been able to forge mentorships and friendships that will always thrive. I’ve gained industry friends who look forward to running into each other every year. We’re most excited for next year’s congress in Hawaii.

    Most recently this organization has benefitted me when I moved to Savannah to work as an assistant beverage manager at a hotel on the riverfront. I actually moved to work under a fellow Skalleague who I met three years ago at my first conference. Having forged a friendship, he knew my work ethic, my positive attributes, and the fact that I was looking to move from Florida. It’s exciting to gain a job out of a networking organization I’ve been so involved with. Moving forward I’m very excited for us to work to charter a Skal Savannah chapter here.

    President’s Corner May 2018

    Greetings fellow Skalleagues

    Mother’s Day- Father’s Day- Summer Vacations…lots of memory makers and shared social media special moments being made. And It’s our SKAL Tampa Bay colleagues and their businesses giving their utmost attention to the details that make these special moments just right. Peter Kreuziger and the team at Bon Appetit hosted a top-notch dinner- right down to the clouds blowing over just in time to enjoy a stunning sunset view. It is truly a treat to come to our dinner meetings- from the exquisite menus and venues to the company we keep. Thank you, Bon Apetit! (wanted to share the great picture of Peter- far right- at the restaurant.)  

                         

    June starts our Mid-Year Membership. What that means is that new members can just pay the one time initiation fee of $165.00 and $167.00 for Dues and then they will just pay as they attend each dinner at the member rate for the remainder of the year. Now is the time to invite your potential guests to join us for Derby Lane in June (WEDNESDAY, June 13) and for our membership drive event in July at Top Golf (no golf experience required!) Please let Steven know if you are interested in using the shuttle from Pinellas to Top Golf offered by Michele O’Hara and Carey Limos- departure will be in the Seminole area and additional stops may be added as needed. Cost is only $10.00 per person round-trip to give to the driver.

    If you mentioned that you were interested in joining the board and you have not heard from me, please email Colette at crworld@live.com. We’re happy to have you join us!

    President’s Corner April 2018

    Greetings fellow Skalleagues

    Young SKAL and the Epicurean... now that is Skal Tampa Bay at its finest! It was great to see so many of our members at our April dinner. We raised $2,800.00 to support our young Skalleagues by offering discounted meals and membership costs and covering travel expenses for our annual North American Skal Congress to our rising tourism industry stars. It's symbiotic- young Skals connect with elite high-level tourism executives, while our "experienced" executives are refreshed by these forward thinking future executives.

    Be sure to invite your qualified guests to our May dinner hosted at Bon Appetit on Monday, May 14, and if they can't make that meeting, we have more exciting events around the corner!

    On a personal and sad note I said goodbye to my father, Claude, on April 24. He was my number one fan and our family will miss him dearly. He was surrounded by our family and we know he is with my mother looking down on us. 

    Best Skal regards!

    President’s Corner March 2018

    Greetings fellow Skalleagues

    What a fantastic evening we had The Club at Treasure Island! Celebrating on International Women’s Day was a good reminder at how our club has grown out of the “good ol’ boy club” and into a diverse membership with an impressive influence in the Tampa Bay tourism industry.

    Congratulations to Hoyt Hamilton and Palm Pavilion for winning Best Beach Bar, Best Sunset Spot and Best Grouper in the Best of St. Pete/Clearwater Winners.

    Be sure to invite a guest to join you for our upcoming Young SKAL fundraising dinner on April 9 at the Epicurean Hotel. There is still time to donate a gift basket or certificate- we have lots of fun things to bid on for the silent auction. If you would like to donate an auction item, please email Raisa Alstodt at ralstodt@gmail.com or Steven at Steven@OurCondo.com

    Best Skal regards!

    President’s Corner February 2018

    Greetings fellow Skalleagues

    I'm certain that we have all been in an experience that may have missed the mark. What makes the difference isn't the experience itself but how it’s handled afterward. Following the outstanding dinner hosted by George Bentley and his team at the Tradewinds is no easy act to follow. When Le Meridien did not hit the mark, we spoke with management and I'm pleased to share that they were quick to respond and acknowledge their missteps. They made things right by offering a lower cost which we are using to offer a partial credit towards our February guests' future dinner and our November Salute to Tourism guests. That’s the professional way! We do appreciate that they hosted our group.

    Young SKAL needs your help! Please let Raisa know that you will be providing a silent auction item, basket, or monetary donation by March 30th by emailing her ralstodt@gmail.com. We’re looking forward to the April 9th fundraiser dinner at the Epicurean!

    On a sad note, we send our condolences to Tampa Bay SKAL member, Lisa Faller with FKQ Advertising who’s father passed away. We also lost longtime member, Cedar Hames of Paradise Advertising.

    For those interested, SKAL USA shirts are available for you to purchase. Here is the link to the web page with a negotiated price of $39.99. https://theflagshirt.com/collections/skal-freedom-polo-shirts 

    See you and your invited guests at our upcoming dinner at The Club at Treasure Island on Thursday, March 8! 

    Best Skal regards!

    Colette Florido

    President’s Corner January 2018

    Greetings fellow Skalleagues

    I hope everyone is off to a great start this year, with just the right amount of busy.

    What an outstanding Installation dinner we had at Tradewinds. Thank you to George Bentley and his team for a memorable dinner experience.

    We look forward to having our new board gather to begin setting our goals for new and exciting things to come this year, while carrying on the most successful traditions of our SKAL chapter.

    Our February dinner will be a relaxing get together at LeMeridian on February 12, 2018 and we hope to see you there.

    Best Skal regards!
