Work hard, play hard

We’ve had an exciting week here at Open Options! On Thursday and Friday, we hosted our first Vendor Day. Representatives from Mercury Security, HID, Ultra Electronics, Allegion, NEC, Stentofon and Isonas were in attendance to present new products, launches and updates to our sales team. It was a fun and informative couple of days, and we appreciate the time and effort everyone took to make our first Vendor Day a huge success. We are looking forward to the next one!

Then, we kicked off the weekend a little early on Friday afternoon with the 12th Annual Open Options Crawfish Boil. The once-a-year event was held at the Open Options headquarters in Addison. Despite a bit of rain, we had an impressive turnout. Everyone had a great time enjoying fresh crawfish with all the fixings, cold drinks and live music from the Jet Poets.

For the second year in a row, we held a silent auction at the crawfish boil which benefited Ronald McDonald House charities. We are excited to announce we ended up raising nearly $750! That being said, we couldn’t have done it without some generous donations from these vendors:

  • Peticolas
  • Mercury Security
  • Braindead Brewing
  • FC Dallas
  • Perfectly Posh
  • Addison Cigar Co.
  • Addison Pilot Shop
  • Stentofon
  • Riviera Spa
  • Allegion
  • Elite Cigar Café
  • Addison Coffee Roasters
  • Milestone Systems

We also want to thank everyone that placed a bid in the auction! Your participation will greatly assist a family in need.

We are already thinking ahead to next year’s crawfish boil, and anticipate it will be even bigger and better than this year’s! A big thanks to everyone who came out!
