01/31/23 Join Henricksen at SMASH charity tournaments in Chicago and Milwaukee It’s that time of year again! Join Henricksen in celebrating the seventh annual SMASH tournament – a get-together featuring lively activities, a diverse guest list, and charitable contributions! Established in Chicago in 2017, SMASH brings people together in an exciting and competitive tournament to benefit local charities near our partners’ hearts in architecture, design, commercial real estate, and construction. In the last six years, SMASH has raised over $50,000 for organizations, including Special Days Camp, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Michael J. Fox Foundation, and Special Olympics of Chicago. Ryan Esche, Henricksen Principal + Vice President shares, “SMASH is authentic to the Henricksen organization. We seek opportunities to support philanthropy, build connections, and have fun.” Due to the event’s success in the Chicago market, we are thrilled to announce our inaugural SMASH event in Milwaukee! SMASH Milwaukee is served up with a twist at NorthSouth Club on February 9th and will introduce a new game to the mix – floor shuffleboard. “This event will be a unique way to spend time with your business community for the good of several charities.” Shares Emily Hurd, Henricksen Principal +Vice President. All teams are encouraged to pre-register and state their chosen charity before the night’s start, as all tournament proceeds will be awarded to the first and second-place teams’ chosen charities. Not only will teams battle for a chance at victory and prize money, but they’ll also compete for the coveted “Team Spirit Award.” This award celebrates those teams with enthusiasm and a creative flare – think costumes, team names, and more! Even if you’re not playing in the tournament, there are still plenty of fun activities and entertainment, such as delicious food, drinks, and good company. So don’t wait any longer – register your team for a night of spirited competition!
