As the smell of gingerbread fills the air and holiday cheer is all around, taking a moment to stop and appreciate all of the wonderful moments is important. The holiday season tends to be a busy time of the year, and if you’re like the Crave and Venue team, life seems to throw you into overdrive. This year has been an especially amazing year for the Rolands, and we wanted to share some of the moments that have made this holiday season so very special. From stage time to featured stories, the Rolands have been at it all, which begs the question…do they ever sleep? Between helping out in the community and abroad, decorating their new home for the holidays and running a successful franchise of businesses, the Rolands have been quite busy!
Yes, it’s a memorable holiday season indeed, so let us tell you all about it!
Nicole Roland…Power Woman
Last month, Nicole was recognized as one of the Power Women of Naples. Honoring the ground-breakers, the change-makers, the visionaries, Power Women of Naples celebrates those who are changing Naples, making it even more fabulous each and every day. Nicole works tirelessly with Venue Naples and the Crave companies, as well as out and about in the community, making a difference wherever she goes. The 2019 Power Women of Naples were honored last month during the Party for Purpose series, which aims to raise funds for local Southwest Florida Charities.
The stage was set and the spotlight was on for Brian and Nicole’s debut in Gulfshore Playhouse’s presentation of “It’s a Wonderful Life.” The Rolands put their best foot forward in their walk-on role in the December 1st showing of the heartfelt holiday story. Tickets are still available for this perfect family show, which runs until December 29th. Grab a seat and enjoy a night of holiday cheer with your loved ones in this must-see show.
Take a peek inside the curtain of the lives of the Rolands in this month’s edition of Naples Illustrated. Nicole and Brian appeared in an eight-page feature story in the popular Southwest Florida magazine, which showcased their beautiful new home and their plans for the holiday season. “Home for the Holidays with the Rolands” touched on married life, holiday traditions, family time, giving back and their ever-growing business ventures.
Readers have the chance to learn what makes the holiday season so special for the duo and their families, how they are continuously helping others and the importance of being able to share special time together, baking cookies and watching cheesy Hallmark movies. After all, it is tradition! Be sure to read more about the lives of the Rolands as they continue to be a driving force in our community.
Thanks for tuning in while we updated you on our magical holiday season. From our family to yours, we wish you the happiest of holidays and a prosperous New Year. We can’t wait to see what you all will accomplish in 2020!
