This year, Miva Merchant’s annual Summer Company Party was held at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Dinner was served in the Island Pavilion, overlooking the Mombasa Lagoon – home to flocks of cormorants, ducks, and shoebill storks. We listened to some good tunes while sharing some amazing food and drinks. We even got in a round of cornhole, which is shaping up to be the official Miva Merchant sport. At the company raffle, intern Chris Rodriguez won a shiny Apple TV (why does the new guy always win?) Sam Newbold scored some snazzy Beats Audio headphones, but it was the Support Team’s Nick Rodney who won the coveted grand prize of the evening: An iPad Mini with Retina display. It was great seeing everyone outside of the office and having fun with family and friends. I can’t wait until next time! Below are a few snaps from the event.
