Summer Summer Summertime

At Zorch, we’re preparing to bid farewell to another summer…The youngins’ are back in school and the scent of pumpkin spice is (already) in the air, so join us as we reflect on a summer well spent.

In June, we spent a sunny afternoon watching a Cubs vs. Pirates game at Wrigley Field. We reserved a tall rooftop space with clear views of the field to enjoy the game. Even though the rain tried to peek through, we soaked up the sun and ate way too many hot dogs while watching our hometown heroes cinch another W for the season.

In July, we hosted our annual Zorch Supplier Appreciation Event here in Chicago. The party took place at Apogee, a rooftop bar at the Dana Hotel in our home turf of River North. It was a beautiful event, complete with mid-century modern décor, a live jazz band, gorgeous city views, and our very own oyster shucker! Thank you to all of our suppliers who joined us at Apogee and made this years event one for the books.

For the second year in a row, a group of Zorch volunteers flew to New York City to assist our client, JPMorgan Chase, with a charity drive called Operation Backpack. Operation Backpack started in 2004 as an affiliate of Volunteers of America, with a goal to provide backpacks and school supplies for homeless children throughout New York City. Thanks to the generosity of JPMC and their employees, this turned out to be an extremely successful drive that we were proud to support.

And…For the second summer in a row, ASI Counselor listed Zorch as one of the Branded Merchandise industry’s top distributors. We even moved up 3 spots on the list!

We hope your summer was a success! See you this fall.
