‘Tis the Season…

Last week we held our annual Lucity holiday lunch here at Lucity HQ. For many of us, this is one of our favorite office traditions. It involves all the usual festivities…a delicious meal, tree trimming, holiday music and a yule log (digital, of course). But the past few years we’ve added another activity to the event…gift wrapping. For the 4th year in a row we’ve raised funds to help give local families a bit of a merrier Christmas. Because 100% of the Lucity team contributed to our adoption campaign, Lucity matched a dollar for every dollar given. This season we “adopted” and provided Christmas gifts and groceries for 4 families! We all loved being part of something so meaningful and fulfilling. There was some creative wrapping necessary for the stuffed toys, some ooooh-ing and aaaaah-ing over the gift selections, and Teresa gave Colin a lesson in wrapping since he hadn’t ever wrapped a gift before! (He was singing the praises of gift bags.)

But if you know us and have worked with Lucity staff over the years you already know all about it. So as this year comes to an end, know that we’ll continue to foster that generous spirit in the Lucity team. We’ll keep looking for ways to make a difference, and for ways to lend a hand.

Happy holidays to you all!

Thanksgiving at Lucity

Last week we celebrated an early Thanksgiving here at Lucity, complete with turkey and all the trimmings. (The pumpkin cheesecake dessert was especially delicious.) As we ate and talked about how grateful we were to get to eat another Thanksgiving meal, we decided to make a big list of things we are grateful for. The topics range from food (shocker) to awesome co-workers to fantastic clients. Take a look at our list, and add your thoughts in the comments.  Happy Thanksgiving! Continue reading

Let’s root, root, root for the home team!

2014-10-17 09.04.02We Kansas City Royals fans are giddy folks these days, with our team taking the American League pennant and heading to the World Series. The amazing 2014 postseason run Lucity’s hometown Royals are currently on is all the more special given the decades of baseball futility we’ve endured since taking the World Series crown in 1985.

A special time indeed – in fact, the Royals’ impact extends beyond its fan base and geographic market. Evidence the 10/16/14 article from The Atlantic titled “The Kansas City Royals’ Huge Appeal”.

When I read the article, I was surprisingly struck by similarities in how the author casts the Royals’ play and how Lucity strives to do business. Excerpts of note: Continue reading
