You really have to try not to have a good time at the Fury Key West Holiday Party, and this year was no different. The crew was out dressed to the nines ready for a celebration at the rooftop bar at La Concha.
As the company keeps growing, the turnout for the party grows exponentially. I arrived with Nicole, Annabelle, and Westy. When the elevator doors opened, Scott and Marius were there to greet us, and the bar was absolutely bustling. We made our way into the ballroom with a delicious buffet spread, a DJ, and of course, more of the Fury crew!
Outside on the rooftop terrace, it was a gorgeous night with the best views of the island. La Concha is the tallest building in Key West at 6 stories high—a fitting place for Fury to celebrate the holidays!
Scott took a moment to recognize members of the team whose longevity and commitment to the company is truly commendable. Everyone was in good spirits. A new twist to the holiday party was a raffle. Fury got its hands on some great prizes including hotel stays and resort credits at La Concha, the Doubletree, and the Ocean Key House.
I’m never lucky when it comes to raffles, so I had no expectations of winning, but Nicole, Jenna, and Lana all walked away with “staycation” packages. The grand prize was a dinner date with the one and only Mr. Scott Saunders and that went to Fury Catamaran crewmember Deanna!
After the presentation, the party kicked into full gear. We crowded the dance floor and the DJ rocked the house with great, new music! Of course, after the party was the after party, and we paraded down Duval Street to wreak a little bit of holiday mayhem.
At Fury, we hope your holiday parties were as memorable as ours and we certainly wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas this weekend! Feliz Navidad!
