    President’s Corner March 2019

    Greetings fellow Skalleagues

    WHO DONE IT?? The mystery of who gagged Biff with a spoon was solved at our SKAL Dinner this month. The setting was The Bay Club at Westshore Yacht Club and we had a great time. This 80's themed event was entertaining and interactive.

    The evening started with passed appetizers of crab cakes, lobster empanadas and other delicacies. The open bar was very popular by our members dressed in their best 1980's interpretations. Dinner was spectacular and included Roasted Pork Loin and Truffle Mushroom Risotto. Kudos to the Chef, Staff and our Hostess/SKAL Member, Julie Cortina.

    Congratulations to Angel Hubayka on winning the 50/50 cash drawing and in honor of her Mom Dina (who was ill) donated the winnings back to SKAL. Other Raffles were won by Richard Nicoleit de Andrade (first-time guest) from Booking.com, Carol Eaves and Karin Donadeo.

    Our next meeting will be Monday, April 08, 2019 at Zoo Tampa, at Lowry Park in Tampa. It promises to be great fun for everyone.

    President’s Corner February 2019

    Greetings fellow Skalleagues

    If you missed our February meeting, you missed a fantastic affair. Thank you to Tom Haines and Shawn Routten for hosting us at the brand-new Fenway Hotel in Dunedin. Valet service welcomed our members and guests. A cool breeze and breathtaking sunset was the scene for our cocktail reception. The private dining room with panoramic views was our setting for a mouthwatering dinner prepared to perfection and did I mention, the service was excellent. 

    Young SKAL held their Annual Fundraiser to help them attend NASC 2019. Thank you to all who donated, organized and purchased silent auction items. They raised $1700.00 thanks to your generosity.

    Congratulations to Danah Heye on winning the 50/50 cash drawing of $110.00 and for donating much of it back to young SKAL. Other raffle items were won by Christopher Heye, Hoyt Hamilton and Janniel Rodriguez.

    We pinned a new Young SKAL member Victoria German – Welcome to the Club!

    Finally, we were honored to recognize Dan Tagger on his 55th Year with SKAL. Dan was a founding member of SKAL Long Island, New York and we are so happy that he is a longtime member of SKAL Tampa Bay now.

    Our next meeting will be Monday, March 11, 2019 at The Bay Club, at the Westshore Yacht Club in Tampa. They have a special Murder Mystery Dinner with the Carrollwood Players. The theme is 80’s High School Class Reunion so wear your favorite 80’s look. It promises to be great fun for everyone.

    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!
