COARSEGOLD – Area business leaders are banding together to invite the community to a free business networking opportunity on Wednesday, July 23. The well-anticipated event will include entertainment and Hors D’oeuvres at the Coarsegold Miner’s Grill from 5 – 8 p.m.
Adding to the excitement, shops at Coarsegold Historic Village will stay open for the evening.
Calling the night’s meetup “Connecting the Dots: Business Network Mixer,” organizers are enthusiastic about the possibilities for improving business opportunities, believing that many members of the community working together is a sure way to improve the chances of success.
Albert and Gabriella Figueroa of FIG Productions, together with Miner’s Grill owner Becky Deaver, Historic Village owner Diane Boland and the Coarsegold Chamber of Commerce, are intent on uniting area stores and services for the good of all concerned, and building confidence and capital through communication and relationships; hence: connecting the dots.
Besides the organizers, a host of sponsors have stepped up to make the night special, including Alfonso’s Mexican Restaurant, Robert’s Frosty, Subway, and Zander’s Coffee. Beer and wine will also be available. Sharp eyes may want to be on the lookout for a silent auction and other surprises, as well.
Citing hardships caused by the economic downturn of the last several years, members of this coalition are determined to turn things around, economically speaking.
“Let’s create our own economy by networking and supporting local businesses,” says entrepreneur Gabriella Figueroa. Other invited Chambers include that of Clovis, North Fork, Oakhurst, and the Central California Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
