I had an AMAZING time Saturday night at the 1st Summer Networking Mixer & After Party! It was so much fun and, I am glad everyone had a great time! This was the biggest event I have been a part of and I was very very nervous. I knew I wanted to do something different for the Tacoma area but, you never know how the turn out is going to be until its all said and done. I went to Desean Willis local VIP event planner, manager extraordinaire with a vision and he made it happen! We had about 150 people walk through the doors, 15 vendors, several sponsors including Tiffany’s Cake Cakes, Ghost Dog Whiskey, Chambers Bay Distillery, Lakewood Ford and an outstanding host Ralph Porter and Northwest Icon Kun Luv.
It was hosted at the Social Bar & Grill right on the beautiful docks in Tacoma. Such a gorgeous location and awesome staff.
The live steel drum playing really set the scene as people walked in. Thank you Obe Quarless!
I was definitely in my element. Leave it to me to want an event that focuses on one of my favorite past times, shopping!
I love supporting local business’s so, it was a lot of fun meeting all the vendors and checking out their products. I didn’t get a chance to get pictures with all of the vendors but, definitely check out the Facebook photo album here for more event highlights.
Thanks to everyone who was involved and helped out (especially shout out to my best friend who spent the night before blowing up about 200 balloons, that was exhausting but wine helped lol )! It was so inspiring to see so many entrepreneurs and motivated people all come together to mingle and have a good time networking with each other. Our area needed this uplifting event and I cannot wait to do it all over again in the fall!
