Mixing and mingling for a good cause: that’s the annual Mingle Bells event, an industry mixer for northern Nevada’s marketing and communications professional associations. Each year, these groups come together for an evening of networking to benefit a local nonprofit organization during the holiday season. This year’s event will be held on Thursday, Dec. 2, 5:30-7:30 pm at Edge Nightclub, Peppermill Hotel Casino. All proceeds from Mingle Bells 2010 will benefit the Food Bank of Northern Nevada.
Cocktails and heavy appetizers will be served during the Thursday evening event, which will also feature raffle prizes and photos with Santa.
Two VIP packages are available for $1,000. These exclusive packages include admission for ten; 40 raffle tickets; a private room off the main floor that seats 20; bottle service with two bottles; and a group photo with Santa.
Mingle Bells tickets are priced at $35 for prepaid members; $40 for prepaid non-members; and $45 for all others at the door. Tickets for raffle prizes are $1 each. For more information on Mingle Bells or to RSVP online, visit http://a2n2.com/a2n2-events/mingle-bells.
