EBay’s 2016 holiday party in Salt Lake City, Utah was held at the Grand America Hotel this year.
This year’s party theme was set in the 1950’s – Vegas Style.
Following with the theme, there was a photo station set up with a Las Vegas sign (custom designed for eBay) as well as beautifully costumed models to take photos with.
Once you get your photos taken (find them here), you had the chance to pick up tickets to the new Star Wars Rogue One and/or enter a silent auction. The silent auctions even helped benefit various charities so you could try and support your favorite one!
Since the Grand America Hotel’s Ballroom is so gorgeous, the decorations easily matched the hotel’s ambiance. Drinks, dinner and dessert were also provided by the Grand America Hotel.
The DelGrosso dancing group was such a hit last year, they came back again to show off some new dances for dinner entertainment during the night. These professional dancers have won many awards, been in popular musical performances, and have appeared on the tv shows, such as Dancing with the Stars and America’s Got Talent. There was also a surprise dance performance involving a couple eBay employees. This dance crew certainly brought their succinct, graceful movements to entertain the guests. This year, they even integrated their dances with live singers.
The after dinner entertainment involved casino tables by Common Cents as well as a dance floor filled music curated by DJ Mike.
