Las Vegas Largest Mixer 5 - Networking

Charles and I a terrific time at Las Vegas Largest Mixer 5. It was held at the Plaza Hotel, downtown Vegas, in one of their ballrooms.

And wouldn't you know it, we ran into some of our own business customers! I love running into them outside of the office.

It's important for businesses, large and small, to attend and even participate in these network events. Many contacts are made; leads can turn into sales. We even discovered businesses opportunities for our personal needs.

You need to get your business noticed by the key players, in your local business community.

I even won a prize, in a drawing! A bottle of Xango!($35.00 a bottle)

Charles Palmer provided the snacks and there was a cash bar. My favorite was the Maine Lobster Corn Dogs. Two thumbs up from this gal. My husband loved the mango custard.

My Bouquet!

I love what Donna, A One of the Kind Creation Florist, created from our phone conversation. She gets such a vision of what you want to have in your bouquet.

Now, I cannot say that I found her on my own. The message board on Wedding had a question, fake or real. A post about how someone thought her work was real and actually placed it in a vase with water.

Stop by her website, for more of her handy work!

I Do Foundation - Making a Donation

Charles and I have been a big supporters in the Boys and Girls Club, since Marcus was 5 years old. We watched him grow, make friends, and volunteer, at the club, in San Diego. We volunteered our time, made monatary donations and spread the word of their good works.

Marcus came full circle when he was picked as "Youth of the Year" for the Clairemont location, in 2007.

I've decided that instead of purchasing candles or some other items, as favors, someone decides to 'accidentially' leave behind, to make a donation to the Boys and Girls Club.

We'll also be making a donation to the American Cancer Society, in honor of those who are no longer with us but in our hearts and prayers.

Stop by I Do Foundation for more information on registry, favors, and more.
