Hitch loves to give back. Our roots are here in Brookings, South Dakota, so that’s why we’ve already given thousands of dollars worth of our time and talents — and it’s only halfway through 2015. We donated our design time and assembly time for the invitations of the CASA Fire & Ice Gala (Court Appointed Special Advocates). One of our favorite donations to date was the SDSU Athletic Auction, where we decorated 69 tables for the dinner. It was an honor to be a part of such a great South Dakota State University effort.
The event was decked out in navy and mixed metals, greens and even pieces of history — old yearbooks and SDSU memorabilia to personalize the event.
Another of our favorite events was “Gatsby on the Green”, a fundraiser for the South Dakota Art Museum. Last year, it was held indoors during the winter and was knows as the “Bootleggers Ball”. Staying with the Roaring ’20s theme, this year it was an outdoor event at the actual SD Art Museum with a jazz band, silent auction, food, wine, and an Art Deco Garden Party theme with feathers, and lots of gold, black, and greens! We donated our time and decorations to the event, which is close to our hearts (since both Carrie and Renee graduated from the Arts).
We look forward to the charitable events still ahead in 2015!
