MPI Awards Gala 2012

A few weeks ago J and I attended the annual MPI (Meeting Professional International) Houston Awards Gala at La Torretta Resort and Spa in Conroe.  Since it was all the way in Conroe we stayed the night which was a fun little getaway. 

Jason has been a member of this organization for years and was the President last year.  This was my fourth time to attend this event with him so it was fun to see familiar faces.  I always look forward to the raffle...since this is an organization within the hospitality industry there are tons of great trips to win (last year we won a trip to Mexico and a two night stay in Galveston).  Jason most looked forward to not having to speak this year. 

The theme this year was "Havana Nights" so I did my best to dress for it.  As I mentioned in an earlier blog post, I did too good of a job because I matched all of the table linens!  Jason looked like he dressed more for "Hampton Nights" but he looked great nonetheless. 

We had a wonderful night.  The food was delicious, the drinks were flowing, and we cleaned up on the loot!  Jason won the "Visionary Award" for his work to improve the chapter and take it to the next level.  I cleaned up on the raffle...winning a trip to Boston, a "staycation" at the Houston St. Regis and on top of all that, I won the Wine Chest!  Too bad Jason hurt his back carrying it back to the room.
