Event description
Please join us for a SURPRISE "Night in Margaritaville" to wish Richard Geleta a happy and healthy retirement!

About this Event

After 44 years of service within his industry, Richard Geleta will be moving onto a new chapter on June 30, 2019, his well deserved retirement. Richard plans to spend his retirement with his wife, Kathie, golfing, boating and overall, just relaxing. They will be frequenting their house in Phoenix, Arizona and their cabin on Columbia Lake, BC, spending time together and with their two daughters, two son-in-laws and two grandson's.

Please join us for a "Night in Margaritaville" to wish Richard Geleta a happy and healthy retirement! Feel free to invite a guest to attend the party with you as well as extend this invitation to others you feel have contributed to Richard's career throughout the years. Please be sure to RSVP all guests so we have an accurate number of guests attending.

As some of you may know, Richard is a self proclaimed "Parrot Head" and life-long fan of the king of shorts and flip flops, Jimmy Buffett. This is why it was only logical to theme his retirement party after Jimmy and turn Vagabond, Calgary into his own private Margaritaville for the evening.

The party will kick off at 4:00 PM (MDT) and will conclude at 9:00 PM (MDT). Please feel free to stop in at any time during this to wish Richard all the best in this new adventure he is about to embark on. Appetizers will be served throughout the evening and speeches will be delivered by various impactful and influential colleagues from Richard's career.

For dress code, please treat this as casual. If there is one thing we know about Richard, he has never been an advocate for wearing a suit! The intention is for the evening to be laid back and to provide him with the opportunity to catch up with friends and colleagues, both old and new.

If you feel the need to bring Richard a send-off gift, we have just the idea for you! What do you buy a soon to be retiree? A donation to his favourite charity - Team Ta Ta's. We will have a donation box at the front door and will be accepting donations should you wish to contribute to this cause (albertacancer.ca/teamtatas).

Remember, this is a SURPRISE!!! Please try to not "spill the beans" to Richard before the party. We hope to blow him away with this well deserved evening!

Should you have any questions, please contact a member of Richard's family as follows:

Kathie Geleta (geletak@hotmail.com)

Nichole Geleta (n_geleta@hotmail.com)

Kaitlyn Law (kaitlyn.law@outlook.com)

We are looking forward to seeing everyone there! Remember to bring your best Margaritaville or Parrot Head attitude!
