We are a growing team and a busy office. We always do our best to make time to relax and enjoy some laughs, but it isn’t often enough that almost all of us get to be together at the same time. So, at the end of each year our doctors come up with a special event to celebrate the hard work we all put in. It drives us all crazy, but they like to keep the details a secret until the time of the event. This year was extra special! The doctors took us to Arte Bar in Wauwatosa to paint a special picture. Pineapple! The reason this is so significant and dear to our hearts is that a pineapple was one of Joanne’s favorite things. A picture perfect fruit that is extended as a symbol of welcoming. We had so much fun painting these in her honor. After our painting class, we headed down the street to Cafe Hollander for dinner and surprise white elephant gifts. Dr Tack and Dr Taibl were in charge of shopping and chose some fantastic gifts! Everything from spa and restaurant gift cards to a wine lovers gift set. The best gifts of all? A set of Selfie Sticks as well as a framed photo of Dr Brunner, and another gift set which included a mug with Dr Brunner’s face and a snuggie. Wait…. those gifts were terrible! No worries, after a few good laughs the docs replaced the fantastic pictures of Brunner with nicer, more fun gifts at the end.
The paintings turned out gorgeous, the gifts were a fun and appreciated surprise, the food was awesome and the company was the best. We had such a great time!! Thank you to Dr Brunner, Dr Taibl and Dr Tack for all you put in to this event. We truly enjoyed it and can’t wait till next year.
