Four members of the staff scored photos submitted by owners and residents. Over 200 photos were received and 35 were chosen as finalists. The categories were People, Places and Seasons, each awarded a 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place prize. Overall, the picture that scored highest received the Grand Prize. Thanks to last minute prize donations, we added two new categories – Most Original and Manager’s Favorite.
First – thank you to all our participants. To show our appreciation, you will all receive an invitation to join me and our building engineer Steve Bisping on a tour behind the scenes at Park Tower, including the roof (weather permitting) and the boiler room. This will be scheduled on an upcoming Saturday – you will receive a formal invite from the front desk.
We would like to thank all our sponsors:
DK Condo, Inc., RCN Telecom, Prospect Resources, Mesirow Financial, Scout the Bed Bug Dog, Starbucks, and Nookies in Edgewater.
