Exactly one week ago, it was almost the same expectation in the air. The Annual Yennenga Progress Glögg Party was held! It was a glorious evening with about 80 wonderful people, networking and celebrating our heroes around the world – Yennenga Networkers – and also the arrival of Christmas!
Thank you all dear members, friends and sponsors and of course special thanks this time to everyone who contributed extra to brighten Yennenga Progress Glögg Party 2011!
The Glögg Party was held in Deloitte‘s spacious lounge. The lounge glowed with beautiful flowers, sweet-smelling Christmas trees in different sizes, and lots of candles. This thanks to Emilia Giertta at the VIP Event Design Stockholm AB, who together with Anna Mourou helped us, put the right touch on this evening!
We were also happy to present the “Waste Collection” an art exhibition that is the starting point for the Yennenga design and waste project! To support the project this great exhibition can be rented, so please contact us for more information!
As the celebration began immediately after work, we thought everyone probably would be a little bit hungry, so we were happy to be able to set the table with homemade bread with fantastic cheeses from
Ockelbo Ost, ham and mustard by Nibble Gårdsgris prepared by chef Goran Wassberg at Ica Maxi, and spicy sausagesfrom Ingelsta Kalkon!
The other table was set with sweets! Malin Aronsson at Linas Matkasse offered Glögg and fruit, Eat Ekoaffären offered raisins and almonds for the glögg and Christmas Tea, Barista Fair Trade offered coffee, and then our amazing Ingabritt Pettersson and Eva Karlsson had baked saffron buns and Christmas cakes in quantities!
And let’s not forget The House of Fair Trade, who added Divine chocolate in the welcome envelope!
Well no one went hungry from this event and also it was stunningly beautiful to look at!
We are moved and happy for all this engagement!
We sold Christmas gifts, which contribute to help build an oasis in Nakamtenga, Burkina Faso! (Trees, energy stoves, food, fruit packages and latrines) When offering your beloved ones such a gift you receive a nice gift card that explains the project. At the glögg party we also sold gifts from the boutique Just Africa, well-chosen suggestions to accompany the gift cards.
In addition to all these sponsors there is of course many more who contributed when decorating, setting the tables and cleaning up The thank-you-list can be made very long!
Yes it was a nice evening! Big Big thanks to all of you, for a great year!
And if you can read through, the list of sponsors, once more, keep them in mind when in the future you need suppliers and want to choose good-hearted business!
Yennenga Progress wishes you a Merry Christmas!
