The event even had a movie marathon; all movies are Tom Hanks movies of course, to celebrate the occasion. Decorations were also “Hanksian,” there’s even a rocket ship piñata in the area named “Catch Me If You Candy.”

The party’s winner featured a kale salad, named “You’ve Got Kale Salad” prepared by Senior Account Manager Kristin Filipovits. The dish beat other entries like “A League of Calzone.”
