Five industry associations once again came together to throw the Marine Industry Holiday Party at the Flagship Room at the MIASF Office. IYBA, ISS, MIASF, USSA, and YPY know how to come together and celebrate any occasion, and this year’s party was no exception. This year’s theme was a holiday pajama party and our attendees showed up in style. They were able to show off their festive and comfy attire by taking a strut on our ‘catwalk’ for a pajama contest. The contest featured different categories for party-goers to enter which included Most Festive, Most Creative, Funniest, Best Couples Costume, and Best Group Costume and win incredibly valuable, limited-edition light up necklaces. Holiday joy and cheer was felt throughout the event as attendees celebrated the season with one another over drinks, breakfast bites, and mini donuts.
Most importantly, this event also celebrates the true reason for the season of giving back to those in need. Party attendees were encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy to the party to donate to the Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center. The CDTC collects toys each year for their Annual Toy Shop that benefits more than 3,000 kids on their holiday list. This is always our favorite part of the party each year, seeing the pile of toys pile up throughout the night and knowing the smiles each toy is going to put on a child’s face. Thank you to the other associations for all they do in working together to put on this party and all attendees for coming to celebrate!
