This year we were grateful to gather the Sip and Ship crew for a night filled with good food and time spent reflecting on the year with the best company! Made even better with a delicious meal catered by K Catering, homemade cupcakes baked by our beloved teammate Emma Y, and handmade decorations crafted by our teammates with a special shoutout to our youngest helper, Poppy. She took the time to help color each of our teammates a paper heart that they got to take home with them, which was definitely a highlight of the night!
CHWAG is an important acronym used to describe Sip and Ship’s core values: courage, hard work, authenticity, and gratitude. Peer nominated, each year we spotlight our teammates who go the extra mile to serve and connect with others daily. Sometimes it’s as simple as making a customer laugh over a cup of coffee, connecting over life milestones, or showing up for a struggling coworker to assist them during a hectic day.
This year we are happy to announce our winners:
- Courage - Sharyn Braff
- Hard Work - Grace Gonzalez
- Authenticity - Abby Williams
- Gratitude - Caroline Dudley
- MVP - Maddie Nichols

P.S. The best way to escape the chill this week is to snuggle up in either the Greenwood or Ballard cafe with a cup of warm tea and start making your Valentine’s Day plans! Our stores are stocked with cards, gifts, and chocolate to help you express love for the special people in your life.
