Faux furs, food, and fun!
On February 18, Pinnacle’s staff celebrated their first all-staff gathering since 2019 with a Cozy Cocktails-themed evening. Many employees hadn’t met each other in person, so it was extra special.
Each staff received a goodie before the evening, including a COVID test, a pair of Bombas cozy socks (the company donates a pair to those in need with every purchase!), and electrolytes to assist in after-party recovery.
The evening was filled with laughs, joy, and gratitude. Pinnacle staff and guests joined the party at McMenamins St. Francis in Bend. After ample time to catch up, eat, and drink, we reflected on projects completed in 2021, acknowledged those that went above and beyond, and glimpsed what was ahead for the year.
