SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, USA - December 17, 2007 - The big winner at this year's Lewis Hall Door Decorating party was the combined effort of theBusiness and Economic Development Center and the Retail Management Program (Michael, Wil, Shaun and Pam) with their clever but non-prophetic display entitled "You'll Never Win a Door Decorating Contest Charlie Brown." Congratulations! They also won the "Best use of UW Office Supplies" and "Most Obvious Use of Professional Assistance" awards.
Also in the running were "Disco Holidays" by Marketing and External Relations (winner of "Most Holiday Spirit" and "Most Labor Intensive" awards), "Santa's Start-Up" from the CIE folks and "A Foster Christmas" by the Business Connections Center.
Other entries were "Mele Kalikimaka" by Krista Peterson in the Global Business Center, "Decorating on the Cheap" by Gordon Neumiller's MBA Field Study Program (this entry won the coveted "Most in Need of Professional Assistance" and "Least Labor Intensive" categories), and "Extreme Tree Makeover" by the Global Business Center.
However, the really big winner was Northwest Harvest, who will get $526.50 to help feed needy families in the area. Northwest Harvest Volunteer Jim Baldwin was on hand to accept the donation and said that as a result of its great buying power, NWH can provide a meal for just 53 cents. At that rate, the Foster School of Business donations will feed over 800 people!
