Holiday Party 2013

A great time was had by all at the annual IIDA Holiday Party.  Local designers and industry partners gathered at the University Club for an evening of fun, food & festivities.  Party goers participated in a food drive benefiting Second Harvest Food Bank and a charitable donation was also made to the Foster Closet. Wrapping up 2013 together was a blast, and if the party was a sign of the coming year, we are bound to have a great year ahead in 2014.  Happy New Year!
