Annual Open House and Fundraiser
On the first Friday of December each year, the staff of C.J. Graphics Inc. host an Open House soirée and smorgasbord. Guests include leading art directors, photographers, artists and politicians, representatives of major graphic arts suppliers, celebrities and, of course, C.J. clients.
During the weeks leading up to the party — the company’s 40,000 square-foot printing facility is magically transformed into an entertainment complex that would rival any city hot spot. Party-goers get to enjoy a live DJ, an “up-close” magician, a Gallery Display and a live auction of some great items by master auctioneer Jay, with proceeds going to the C.J. Skateboard Foundation. And then there’s the surprise gift that guests are given when they leave.
