Last week the GRACE Staff, family, friends, and Board Members gathered together to celebrate the beginning of a new year and let loose after a busy and productive holiday and year-end season.

It wouldn’t be a GRACE party without Chef Ted Bilski’s Scratch Kitchen delectables, some friendly competition in a GRACE-themed Jeopardy showdown, a little Photoboth goofing around, and spirited fellowship and fun with our GRACE Team. Oh, and the cherry on top — chair massages for all!


Our CEO taking full advantage of the “party favors” compliments of Garry Commiato of Garry’s Relaxing Touch Massage Therapy. A much-needed perk!


Scratch Kitchen provided their signature Teddy Cakes, Crown Royal bacon wrapped shrimp, stuffed mushrooms, BBQ sliders, and our favorite Cowboy Cookies among other treats. A few adult beverages were enjoyed as well.

At GRACE, we see our individual roles as more of a calling rather than just a job, and our teams work tirelessly throughout the year. Our New Year’s celebration was a fun opportunity to enjoy some downtime together and get a little silly (or a lot silly – see pics for proof).

Check out all of the photo booth fun provided by Bryan Kennedy of Hollywood Photo Booth here.

An enormous thank you to Melissa Simpkins for planning and setting it up for us all to enjoy. It’s a lot of work, and those of us who attended appreciate your hard work and the fun evening. It was a wonderful way to celebrate a blessed 2018 and kick-off 2019!

Wishing and praying many joys to come to you in this new year!
