This past Friday, the employees of the ACE Conference Center celebrated “Bring Your Child to Work Day” with over 15 employees and their children participating. The idea behind the day is to give our employees’ sons and daughters a glimpse of the working world. While bring your child to work day began with a focus on empowering girls, most workplaces nowadays welcome boys and girls equally for inspiration and information.
Some of the highlights of the Bring Your Child to Work Day here at ACE: All of the kids were given a tour of the golf course at our sister property, the ACE Club. Not only did they get a chance to tour the gorgeous rolling hills, ponds and creeks that surround the golf course but they got to do it in golf carts! The Golf Pro, Executive Chef and caddies all came out to speak with the kids about the golf club and what it takes to maintain the golf course for the members. No tour would be complete without some play time on the course itself! The kids were given putters to try their hand on the putting green before everyone headed up to the main hotel and conference center.
After their busy morning at the golf club, the kids were given a behind-the-scenes tour of ACE Conference Center, particularly the herb and vegetable gardens as well as the kitchen. Once at the kitchen, they all were instructed on how to make their own Wolfgang Puck Catering pizzas for lunch!The Executive Catering Chef, Chris Stevens, had all kinds of delicious vegetables, meats and cheeses available for the kids to use to make their own personal pizzas. But first, they would have to make their own pizza dough! Including learning to toss it in the air!
After lunch the kids were taught by our dedicated Housekeeping Department how to make a swan towel fold.
Although one of the hottest days on record, Bring Your Child to Work Day was a fun day of bonding between the parents and their children.
