Liles with Lauren Pursur of TM Sales.

Denver-based manufacturers rep TM Sales decided to do something special for its 15th anniversary open house customer appreciation event. The company invited Colorado Avalanche hockey star John-Michael Liles to pose for pictures and sign autographs. The event drew 450 people, including employees, their spouses and children. Vendors set up tables to display products or brought training vans to the parking lot. Casino games were offered in the evening.
