The specialized staffing firm Robert Half International hosted a fantastic evening of wine and chocolate tasting and jewelry pairing on March 21st, 2013 in Oakland. LaMont Connie, member of the Court of Master Sommeliers and Account Executive at Robert Half, shared his expertise on wine pairing by featuring both red and white wines. Halo Fine Confections presented their unique flavors of chocolate, which can be found at most retail and drug stores in the Bay Area. A special part of the evening was learning about jewelry pairing from Traci Behrens, representative of Premier Designs Jewelry, which specializes in helping women get a polished and professional look. She not only paired jewelry with women based on their skin tone, hair color, and favorite colors to wear, but she donated a portion of her sales to the Financial Women’s Association’s Scholarship Fund. Thank you, Traci!

This fantastic event hosted on March 21st was a perfect break during the busy season. Hosted at Robert Half International’s downtown Oakland location, it was the perfect setting for an evening of fun and learning while mingling with new colleagues.
