Avengers Movie Night, May 2018
We became planners because we love cities and the people who live in them. On May 19, we got to celebrate that love for our community. We booked an entire movie theater and invited families from various backgrounds to enjoy a full cinema experience complete with popcorn, snacks, goodie bags, prize raffles, and real life superheros in costume. The idea was inspired and coordinated in partnership with Yuri Williams, a real life Southern California Superhero. Thank you to everyone who donated and helped make this event possible!
Holiday Party, December 2017
Nothing brings out the weirdness in our team quite like a good holiday party! We celebrated the end of 2017 with drinks and celebrity sightings at Central Bar in The District. Justin Bieber, Audrey Hepburn, and even Fabio made special appearances!
Child Creativity Lab Events, May 2017
We've had the honor of working with Child Creativity Lab for about a year now, and we're grateful for every minute. This month was full of opportunities to connect with their work - starting with their annual wine mixer and ending with a private robot-building workshop! They even helped us donate our robot creations to another great organization - Project Hope Alliance. If you're looking for ways to get involved in Orange County, their organizations are great places to start!
Laundry Love Santa Ana, March 2017
We place a high value on being a part of our local communities and taking responsilbility within them. One of the ways we like to get involved is by taking part in events like the monthly Laundry Love Santa Ana laundry night! It also provides a great excuse to eat and dance the night away with cool new people.
Downtown Vegas Zappos Tour, January 2017
There are few things Kapstone appreciates more than community and company culture. So when we got the chance to explore Downtown Vegas with Zappos, we jumped! We had a blast touring Fremont Street, and took plenty of new ideas home with us (and maybe a little in casino winnings, too).
Holiday Parties, December 2016
Our Kapstone team works hard, and plays hard. That's why we sent 2016 out with a bang, and celebrated the end of the year with a whopping three holiday parties! Between happy hour at Eureka, our very own quest through an escape room (plus pitstop at Barley Forge Brewery), and bowling night - we thought the fun would never end!
Dana Point State BBQ Championship, October 2016
The Dana Point State BBQ Championship doesn't mess around when it comes to barbecue and beer! Sea Terrace Park was overflowing with booths serving up fresh pulled pork, brisket, and beer on tap. It was a great excuse to pig out and explore a beautiful beach community!
Kapstone Housewarming, September 2016
We love our new office space at the ROC Office Center in University Research Center! We were excited to usher in this new era, so we invited our friends from City Hall to celebrate with karaoke and snacks from The Lime Truck. Some may say we sang a little too much, but we'd say it was just right!
KCRW Summer Nights, September 2016
The Anaheim Packing House, once a Sunkist citrus packing house, is now an eccentric food hall with 20+ eateries. So of course when KCRW Summer Nights came to the Packing House, we made our way over to one of our favorite OC spots for an evening of music, food, dancing, and lawn games!
DTSA Art Walk, September 2016
We hosted our second-ever Meetup at the Downtown Santa Ana Art Walk this September! Good food, beautiful art, and of course great company! We had fun exploring the local bars, galleries and food stops, and even chatting with the artists.
San Clemente Fiesta Music Festival, August 2016
After business hours, our Kapstone team members become Community Crashers! Our Meetup group provides a platform for building community through crashing local events throughout OC, and our first event was the 2016 San Clemente Fiesta Music Festival! We may have had a little too much fun between salsa and beer tasting, touring the booths, and dressing up as hot dogs. And it gave us all the chance to connect with other members of our community!
Year-End MURP Celebration, June 2016:
We owe a lot to UC Irvine, what with about half of our staff being alumni! So we helped the Master's of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) class of 2016 go out in style this year, with a year-end celebration at Eureka!
St. Paddy's Mixer, March 2016:
After putting in a good day's work at the office this St. Paddy’s Day, we needed a change of scenery. So we headed over to Eureka for green beer, red wigs, and Patricks galore!
Child Creativity Lab Volunteer Event, March 2016:
With glue on our fingers and hands busy untangling yarn, we helped students at Portola Springs Elementary School make self-portraits out of reusable materials donated from around Orange County. We love partnering with Child Creativity Lab and appreciate their dedication to engage not only the little kids, but us big kids too! To learn more about the amazing work that Child Creativity Lab is doing in the community through their STEM-based after school programs, check out their website here: www.childcreativitylab.org
Toastmaster’s Speech Contest, October 2015:
Our very own Nancy Huynh took FIRST PLACE in the Founder’s District Tall Tales Speech Contest! Over 30,000 people participate in this Toastmaster’s public speaking contest each year, so this was no small feat. Good thing we have plenty of shelf space, because this is not the first (or the last) trophy that Nancy will bring home!
Kapstone Holiday Soiree, December 2015:
Winter 2015 set the scene for Kapstone’s inaugural holiday party at the fashionable Union Market in Tustin. With tasty drinks from Central Bar and gourmet delectables by The Kroft, we celebrated the end of the year in style with our client, The City of Irvine.
