Year Two of Padres Fun for the RICK Community

RICK held its second annual employee and client appreciation event at Petco Park on Thursday, June 20th for the San Diego Padres verses Milwaukee Brewers game. RICK’s community of clients and employees from a few of our California offices enjoyed an evening of cheering on the home team, soaking up the summer weather, and spending quality time with valued clients and colleagues. With over 120 employees and 140 clients attending, friendly faces filled the ballpark’s Estrella Jalisco Landing.



This annual event was born out of a desire to show our clients how much their partnerships mean to our teams here at RICK and to thank them for their support of RICK’s mission. Some of RICK’s client partnerships have allowed our engineers, planners, and designers to create community-enhancing spaces in the San Diego area and beyond for decades. Events like these remind us of how fortunate we are to work with such fantastic individuals and organizations. The support and trust of our communities drive us to continually strive for excellence in everything we do.


“One of our key values is to celebrate our employees and our clients, so it was great to see everyone having a good time.”
Venkat Gummadi | Associate Principal


On top of the excitement of catching up with colleagues, the Padres played an exciting game and took home a walk-off win! Thanks to the nail-biting win and some icebreaker activities, such as RICK bingo and an aloha t-shirt giveaway by the Padres, laughs and cheers abounded all the evening.


“Sharing time with our RICK colleagues and industry partners outside of work is always valuable, and the opportunity to do so in such an amazing setting was so fun. Seeing how much fun everyone had, how light-hearted the interactions were, and capping the night with a walk-off win was amazing!”
Geoff Rubin | RICK Associate


RICK is grateful to our internal teams for their expert planning skills and to our clients for making the event a true resounding success. We look forward to many more opportunities to strengthen our partnerships and create more memorable experiences together. See you at the field next year!
