We have a lot of customers in high places. If you think of Kentucky, you can’t help but think of Churchill Downs, and the Kentucky Derby. We have the chance each day to create amazing signs on amazing structures. This opportunity was no different. We were asked to create illuminated Letters to be placed about 60 feet in the air, on the side of a building, easy right? Next requirement -
The letters also needed to change color, 13 colors to be exact. Oh and thelast requirement – the customer needs the sign up the week of the Kentucky Derby. No Pressure! The DeNyse team jumped into action. Design, Fabrication, and Installation. Once the design was approved, the fabrication was complete, our installation team traveled to the site. Working as fast and carefully as possible, the signs were installed and illuminating. The customer was happy, and we were able to see our project completed…
Concept to Completion….
So as the sun went down on the 2012 Kentucky Derby and “I’ll Have Another” was eating his victory Dinner, the changing colors of the New Churchill Downs sign could be seen from all around.
Our employees have hearts of gold. Each year our employees give selflessly to multiple charities. We have weekly payroll deductions to support the United Way, and work with The Pantry and The Atlanta Food Bank, as well as Meals On Wheels.
Last Friday night, Team DeNyse hit the track to support Relay for Life. The members of Team DeNyse: Marianne Rivera, Mark DeNyse, Jennifer DeNyse, Allen DeNyse, Heather Taylor, Chris Budde, Vickie Tippens, Chip Vinson, Corey Anderson (and Family) Thesie Peacock (not shown).
We are so proud of our team for raising over $800.00 for Relay for Life. Fundraising was headed by our own in-house Barista, Mark DeNyse along with face painting, and hair painting courtesy of Marianne Rivera and her little helper.
The night was an amazing tribute to cancer survivors and those who are no longer with us. We proudly watched as one of our own survivors, Thesie Peacock, took her survivor lap. The night was filled with amazing Hope, Love, Strength and Determination.
Speed walker, Chip Vinson completed 80 laps = 20 miles, as well as lead the team for the most blisters! His determination caught the attention of the community manager. We are so proud to be part of an amazing night for charity along with our friends, family and don’t forget our Team Captain Carne’ (Chilli in attendance but not shown). We look forward to another chance to work as a team, achieve a goal and have a lot of fun together…wait that is exactly what we do every day at DeNyse Companies. We know that to become a trusted sign & lighting partner with our customers, we have to also be a trusted partner with our co-workers. Stay tuned for the next event, you can meet the DeNyse Team, especially Carne’, he gets the most attention!
