Speed Networking Fundraiser for American Cancer Society! (Concord)

Hi, Folks! Kiera Rain, Bay Area Professional Organizer, and Cheryl Duncan, Financial Advisor with Waddell and Reed in Concord, are teaming up to host an amazing evening of networking and fun to raise awareness, support and funds for the American Cancer Society! Kiera's last Speed Networking ACS event in February at Laptop Lounge in Walnut Creek ended up being over 75 people, and raised over $700 post chair rental fees! THIS time, we have a BIGGER space, FREE chairs, and more experience to make this round even bigger, badder and better!

Our goal for the night is $1,500 for The American Cancer Society, and everything raised (vendor booth spaces, entry fee, raffle tickets) is going 100% to ACS! So let's make a difference when we network!

This awesome event is on Tuesday, June 25th, 6-8:30 pm so MARK YOUR CALENDARS NOW! You don't want to miss this fabulous opportunity!

ONLY $10 (Cash or Check) per person entry fee

You will meet 30 people via the hour of speed networking, not to mention the before/after open networking, too.
Get your business message across by stating your name, business name, what you do, how you're different/a hobby of yours/a fear you have so it shows you're human and not just another business/how long you've been in business/why you got into your type of business/who your power partners are/what you want from your speed meeting/etc, and then re-end with your name and business name, and hand them your business card to keep.
Bring LOTS of business cards. You can also bring flyers for other networking events, brochures, and other marketing supplies/goodies to pass out. There will also be two tables set up for everyone to leave information on.

Interested in becoming a Vendor Booth? First Come, First Serve per Business Category! Only $75/space--table and chair included! 100% of Funds go to the American Cancer Society! Cash or Check made out to ACS. Email Kiera Rain, Bay Area Professional Organizer, at info@TheBayOrganizer.com to reserve your spot.
Want Your Business Announced at the Event? Donate a Raffle Prize! Just bring your Gift Certificate or Gift (no coupons/discounts) and attach your business card! Max 2 Prizes per Entrepreneur. There will be a Raffle Prize Table you can drop off at, and your business will be announced at the end during Raffle Prize time! Thank you for your generous donations!
