wrap it in red event ceiWith the holiday season comes extravagant decorations, cold weather, hot chocolate, and lots of giving! At CEI, we believe an important part of the holiday season is giving back to our community. That is why we host our annual Wrap it in Red holiday party. With your help, this event will directly benefit local charities and allowing them to be able to give more to others during the holidays. This year, the event will be held at the Raleigh Country Club on December 7th from 4:30pm to 8:00pm.

This year, CEI and a division of our company, Strategic Systems, are partnering with  SPCA of Wake County and GiGi’s Playhouse Raleigh. Guests can help these organizations by making a donation at the event or contributing an item from the wish list (located at the bottom of this page). These donations and wish list items will all be given to our partners to help create a bigger impact on our community. Whoever contributes to this wonderful cause will be entered into our annual holiday raffle, where you can win one of many great prizes!

All parties require entertainment and delicious food. We will be serving heavy hors d’oeuvres, adult beverage samples and entertaining our guests, with Harry from Iconic DJ Productions, Magic by David, pictures with Santa, and an awesome raffle.

If you have any questions about this event, our team members Anna Groblewski or Kirsten Billings can help. Give them a call at (919) 781-8885 or send an email to events@copycei.com!

Our Wrap it in Red holiday party was created with the intent to give back to our community in lieu of the holiday spirit. With its success each year, it will continue to be a lively tradition for years to come. Helping others has always been a prime consideration at CEI and Strategic Systems. Each quarter, our company has a Service Day, where our team members volunteer at a local non-profit group and give back to our community. Our team challenges you to keep the giving, holiday spirit going through the entire year to make a difference in your community!
