In Bahrain, most of the companies hold their Annual Staff Party around this time. I have always been appointed as one of the organizers for our company’s party and assigned to getting some sponsorship from the suppliers. Most of them would sponsor promotional pens, stay for two at their hotel, some big companies give cash and home appliances.
I remember the first year where I got BD50 cash from the raffle draw right there and then sponsored by BBK (Bank of Bahrain and Kuwait) while my ex-boyfriend who is now my husband won the same amount but sponsored by a different bank.
Lucky us huh?
