On April 6th the Chicago Cubs hit a grand slam with their inaugural Bricks & Ivy Ball benefitting the Cubs Charities. After thorough scouting, the ball club confidently chose Events.org as a first round draft pick to run the gala’s interactive auction with iBid.
Last Wednesday, my morning started like any other, but after lunch I traded in my desk and awesome phone headset for the Navy Pier Grand Ballroom and my favorite J-crew sequin skirt. Instead of working to a little streaming XRT, I watched the Freddy Jones Band rock all their greatest hits. Customer support took the form of teaching Big Z how to use a hand held bidding device, and gossip around the water-cooler sounded like, “check out Carlos Marmol’s velvet blazer…” The entire team and front office staff were gracious and friendly, and iBid was a hit. Cubbie Blue Martinis flowed as freely as Jeff Samardzija’s locks, and bidders competed like Kerry Wood in the 9th.
Not bad for a day at “work.”
Take a look at coverage of the event below:
