Several local groups that support businesses and non-profits are pleased to be working together to present a holiday networking event. Collaborators for the evening include Startup Sackville, CBDC Westmorland-Albert, the Sackville Commons, the Ron Joyce Centre for Business at Mount Allison, Futurpreneur, Renaissance Sackville, and the Town of Sackville. The evening will be festive and relaxing to show local businesses that their hard work and dedication are appreciated by the community.
The evening will also include opportunities for cross-pollination. There are many new businesses in town run by young people or new entrepreneurs, and they often don’t get to meet the more established business owners. Likewise, non-profits and for-profit businesses don’t always get the chance to network.
The evening will take place Tuesday, December 5 at Cranewood on Main from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. People are welcome to attend the whole evening or to just drop in during those times. There will be delicious finger food, door prizes and a cash bar. Organizers have decided not to charge people for attending but instead ask people to bring a non-perishable food item for the Sackville Food Bank. For more information please contact Ron at firstname.lastname@example.org or 364-4938.
