Annual Pie Night

Last week we hosted our annual Pie Night/ Client Appreciation Night. What a blast it was! We gave out over 130 pies to our clients and enjoyed a night of food, cheers and company. We love our clients and love the relationships we have built over the years. We’d love for you to be our client too and partake in these annual traditions?

Water Watch Auction ReCap

We love giving back to our community and one organization that we support is Water Watch. Their mission is to  protect and restore flows in our rivers to sustain the native fish, wildlife, and the people who depend on healthy rivers.  This past weekend, The Caplener Group was a proud sponsor at their annual auction. Held on November 5th at The Tiffany Center, to a sold out crowd. Complete with a silent, auction and program it was a fun night working for a great cause.

They met their goal of $170,000! The annual auction is a general fundraiser for the organization, and it funds several projects and support the operating capacity of WaterWatch. For a list of what they are currently working on, please visit their website:

Glencoe Auction a success!


The Caplener Group was a Gold Sponsor at the 2016 Glencoe Auction held the 1st of April this year. We love helping our community and schools succeed.
Let us know if we can help you!

The annual Glencoe Elementary School auction is the major fundraiser for the Glencoe Foundation, which helps to fill in gaps in critical staffing needs at the school – past examples include a reading specialist, on-site IT support, media specialist and counselors. This year’s auction was a huge success, netting just over $75,000. The event was emceed by Mark Nelsen, Chief Meteorologist for KPTV Channel 12, with assistance from Principal Lori Clark. Principal Clark really took to heart this year’s theme of ‘Be a Fool for Our School’ – the auction date was April 1 – by dressing up and doing a cartwheel on stage after surpassing our direct appeal goal.

Patting ourselves on the back for yet another successful pumpkin delivery! This year we hand-delivered 325 pumpkins to the doorsteps of our past clients, which as you can imagine is a lot of work so even Cody Caplener, the canine mayor of the Hawthorne office lent a paw. Thanks to all the wonderful people who make our business possible and have a safe and Happy Halloween!
