It’s never a dull moment around Uptown Studios. Here’s a peek into what the Uptown Studios crew has been up to…
SARTA CleanStart Showcase
Tina had the opportunity to be a panelist at the SARTA CleanStart Showcase – Spotlighting Sacramento Clean Tech Business. She talked about what customers really want – Great service – Great Product – Great Price. Kate and Katrina wo-manned the exhibit booth and met some like-minded people who are green with technology.
Uptown Studios was awarded with the 2012 Sacramento Area Sustainable Business Award from the Sacramento Metro Chamber and Business Environmental Resource Center (BERC) in September. We were recognized for our commitment to green practices, both here at the studio and with our clients. Uptown Studios is here to take the lead on your marketing and make sure you have all the options for a successful campaign – Ask about options like Social Media Ads, “GoodPaper” page turning documents and fillable PDFs – we ARE here to green you up!
Department of Managed Healthcare (DMHC)
We completed a great social media project with DMHC this month. We managed their social media and created some great videos that describe some of the work they provide to all of us.
Robots and Jell-O Shots
We were invited to bartend at the 3rd Annual Robots and Jell-O shots fundraiser for Powerhouse Science Center. The most unusual FUNdrasier we’ve attended! We had a great time passing out Jell-O shots and being the referees at beer pong. We even tried to make a pyramid. We might have failed…
Oktoberfest is one of the most famous events in Germany… and at Uptown Studios! Our annual Oktoberfest party was stocked full of beer, brats, pretzels and Tina’s famous homemade sauerkraut. It was a perfect way to celebrate the Bavarian culture and a welcoming of the fall season.
No Uptown Studios party is complete without a little “corn hole” game. What’s corn hole you might ask? A German game first played during the 14th century, players take turns throwing corn hole bags at a raised platform with a hole in the far end. A corn bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point. Play continues until a team or player reaches the score of 21. It’s always a hit and always a blast. If you have yet to play, let us know – we’re always game!
Red Dress Party Fundraiser
This was the first of an annual event – EVERYONE must wear a red dress. The Red Dress Party is a unique event benefiting the Sacramento Gay & Lesbian Center. It attracts people as diverse as Sacramento itself and raises awareness and funds to support organizations that engage in HIV/AIDS prevention, education and care.
What a great team:
If you haven’t met our newest members of the Uptown Studios crew here is a bit about them:
