Relaxing Retirement Coach CASINO NIGHT
At GILLETTE Stadium
Home of The New England Patriots
Our Spring 2014 Relaxing Retirement Member Appreciation Event was CASINO NIGHT down at GILLETTE Stadium, home of The New England Patriots. From the Stadium venue…to the Gillette staff… to our entertaining casino dealers… to our sleight of hand magician…to our ‘green screen’ photographer…all the way to Mike the DJ, who got so many of our members up dancing.
Yes, dancing at a casino! What an atmosphere!
They were all excellent and we thank them for a really entertaining night.
As you might have guessed, I’m not exactly a gambler.
And as your Retirement Coach, it could certainly be frowned upon in some circles that I brought you to a casino to gamble!
Not exactly a very good “Retirement Coach” strategy!
However, unlike traditional casinos, many of our members went home with more than when they arrived because we had a ton of prizes to win, and none of them went home with less than they came with because we provided everyone with $5,000 in “casino cash” to play blackjack, craps, poker, roulette, and the slots.
In addition to that, over 70 members won prizes after taking a spin on The Relaxing Retirement Wheel of Fortune!
It was really something to watch everyone play with the backdrop of Gillette Stadium field under the lights behind them.
Even those who had no experience at casinos were mixing it up. As advertised, our dealers were very friendly and helpful, especially with first time players.
The White Heat Swing Orchestra
Our Fall 2013 Relaxing Retirement Member Appreciation Event was an entertaining evening of cocktails, dinner and dancing to the sounds of The White Heat Swing Orchestra, “Boston’s Best Dance Band”.
Under the direction of Craig Ball, WHSC was everything we hoped for. They were excellent!
A host of members mentioned that the evening of ’big band’ sound and dancing brought back so many memories for them.
Our special guest lead dancer, Karen Leeds, also did a great job kicking things off by leading a big group on the dance floor which created a lot of laughs.
We were thrilled to see so many of our members spend most of their evening on the dance floor.
As with all of our events, one of the best takeaways we hear about is the other members you get to meet and share stories and experiences with.
So much of the feedback we’ve received so far centered around this and we think it’s great!
Relaxing Retirement Members
Become “Younger Next Year”!
with Best Selling Co-Author Chris Crowley
The older I get, and the longer I work with each of our Relaxing Retirement members, the more I’ve come to realize just how important your good health is. If you’re not vibrant and healthy, all the money and financial confidence in the world is of no value to you because you can’t enjoy it.
At our Spring 2013 Event, we were fortunate to have Chris Crowley join us. Chris is the NY Times bestselling co-author (with leading NY internist Henry S. Lodge M.D.) of “Younger Next Year and Younger Next Year for Women…How to Live Strong, Fit, and Sexy Until You’re 80 and Beyond” which have been called ‘The Boomers’ Bible’ and ‘The Best Thing Ever Written’ about fitness and wellness for the Baby Boom generation.
Now in his late 70s, Chris is Dr. Lodge’s star patient turned spokesperson for what he calls “The Revolution in Aging”. His message was so important for all of us. It’s one thing to read the book, which I strongly recommend. However, it’s quite another to be inspired, in person, by someone who’s walking his talk. And, that’s exactly what Chris did.
You couldn’t help but be energized by the possibilities that he laid out.
When Chris was finished, in addition to singing books for everyone, we passed the microphone as many of our Relaxing Retirement members asked questions and shared comments and experiences about this incredibly important topic of becoming functionally younger every year!
George’s “Murder Mystery” Retirement Party
Murder was on the menu for the Fall 2012 Relaxing Retirement Members Only Event!This was a really fun evening with great food and drinks, engaging conversation, a bit of mystery and intrigue, and a bunch of laughter.A “crime” was committed during an interactive mystery facilitated by real actors, and it was our job to help them solve it
Your Family’s Solution:
The “What To Do When I’m No Longer Here” Program
This was not exactly the easiest topic to discuss in a group setting. After all, who exactly woke up that morning looking forward to planning for what happens when you’re no longer here! However, we decided that it was too important not to do it. That’s how vital we believe this is. Given the turnout and incredible feedback we received, it’s clear that we made the right decision.
The Relaxing Retirement Wine Tasting Extravaganza
featuring Christine Ansbacher, The WINE DIVA
Christine is one of the nation’s most sought-after wine speakers. She was dubbed “The Wine Diva” at a wine tasting dinner held at the Metropolitan Opera in New York because she’s not just a wine educator, but a wine entertainer who instructs with a healthy dose of theatrics, quips, quotes and jokes.
Christine provided us with fantastic tips while keeping us all entertained at the same time. She even got us into the act as Pat, Lisa, and Julie demonstrated each wine tool for everyone right along with Christine.
At the conclusion of the tasting, there was a Pop Quiz and four tables of members walked away with a bunch of prizes including crystal stem wine glasses, Legacy 3-in-1 Cork Pops, Rabbit Aerating Pourers, and Private Reserve Wine Preservers.
As you’ll see in the video, Jack even got into the act as Christine had Jack open a bottle of champagne with a saber like they would in the old days!
