Chapter Highlights
Sunshine

The chapter had another successful end of the year event
called Inspiration Through the Arts at the Orlando Museum
1
of Art on December 7th. Members and guests had the
opportunity to display their artistic talents and some amazing
pieces of artwork were sold. All proceeds benefitted the
chapter's mission of education and scholarship. Additionally,
the chapter held its "Passing of the Gavel," welcoming president
elect Cindy Andrews into office along with her new board, and
bidding farewell to Marissa Colli and a few others.

The chapter recently held a membership drive at Citrus
Restaurant, reaching out to new community members and

J. Hutchinson, III, CEO of CNL Hotels & Resorts Inc., and Trisha Poole, NEWH, Inc. president, and
president and founder of Design Poole.

Vancouver Regional Group

The group has capped off a successful 2013 year with events
that are becoming the "can't miss" networking opportunities.
New additions to the board include James Adamson, Eden
Textiles; Jennifer Kurtz, Starbucks; and interior designer Lorin
Bordeville.
At its fall event, held at Forage Restaurant, the group welcomed
its first scholarship winner Mojgan Issaei an intern at B+H CHIL
Design, who received a $2,000 scholarship. The event featured
presentations by Dean Collingridge, Evoke International Design,
and Matthew Presidente, restaurant manager of Forage.
Special thanks to the event's sponsors: prestige sponsor
Formica, who sponsored the oyster bar; platinum sponsor
Coastal Flooring; gold sponsors Vibe Hospitality and CT1
Construction; and silver sponsors Oldale & Sons, Westport Mfg.,
and Westbro.
The group's first event of 2014, a sundowner at the Blackbird,
drew more than 100 people. The restaurant, designed by
Ste. Marie, draws visions of a vintage Midtown Manhattan
pub scene complete with billiards, a scotch bar, and darts
providing Donnelly Group with a new and upscale location
to its repertoire of pubs. Food graced a long table allowing a
meeting place for everyone to congregate and get caught up
while other guests mingled near the bar or cozied privately
in the large booths. This event could not have been possible
without the support of gold sponsor Vibe Hospitality and silver
sponsor Westport Mfg.
