Dragons, Lizards, Hob Nob & Cheesecake
We had a great time this month at Chamber events. As President of the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce, we took on the challenge from the Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce in its Second Annual Dragon Boat Races. The “Fighting Lizards” defended the honor of the CCCC and beat last year’s winner in the first heat after only an hour of practice two days before. We batted .500 going against the PG Chamber beating one of its teams but jut finishing a few seconds behind the other.
Another wonderful event we participated in was the Sarasota Chamber’s annual Hob Nob. If you haven’t attended it before, its an outdoor event with 20 members in tents provided food or drink to the over 650 participants who paid $50 for the all you can eat end drink event. We participated of course by giving out slices of New York Style Cheesecake from Sara’s Cheesecake in Paradise. More people wanted info on the cheesecake than our firm! It was a tremendous networking event and we look forward to participating again next year.
