Hot Glass on a Cold Winter Night



Louisville has always been a good market for us both on the leisure side and for group sales. We are lucky to have Sales Manager Michele Bowling working that area for us and when clients can't make it the resort, she brings it to them.

Such was the case on Thursday, February 11th when Michele hosted a French Lick Resort cocktail reception at Glassworks in downtown Louisville. The timing was perfect...there had been snow earlier in the week...but by Thursday everyone was ready to be out and about.

The event was held in a beautiful space next to the gallery and overlooking the glassblowing studio. I have always been fascinated with glassblowing and this event confirmed that even more.

Four lucky guests had the chance to work with one of the resident glass blowing artisans to "Blow Their Sweetheart a Kiss!" Wouldn't you know it..I, of course, was not eligible since I work for the resort. Darn!

Our lucky winners were Michelle Harper of Distillers Grain Technology, Andrea Eisert & Jamie Kamin, both of Humana and Gayla Shaftlein of the Louisville CVB. The ladies designed and created their own keepsake "kiss."

Here is a slide show of photos from the event. The music is provided by one of our favorite friends--Sarah Stivers, who performs at the resort on a regular basis.
