As always, we want to remind everyone that this is a work event and while we want you to have fun and enjoy this celebration, we also expect you to do so in moderation. Over indulgence at this event is not a recipe for success at Ruppert. We will be serving beer and wine only and no outside alcohol may be brought into the hotel! Alcohol won’t be served during the awards ceremony between 9-10 p.m. If you notice anyone you think needs assistance, please get with any available branch manager. The hotel will be happy to assist us with getting cabs for anyone who needs it. Remember: this will only be a successful event if it is a safe event.
