Please join your fellow entrepreneurs for a special Monthly Monday Charity Meetup! For this networking mixer, we'll be partnering with the Bowie Business Start-Up and Support Meetup (http://www.meetup.com/BowieBusiness/), DC-MD-VA Entrepreneur Alliance Meetup (http://www.meetup.com/DMV-Entrepreneur-Alliance/) and the Christian Business Exchange Meetup (http://www.meetup.com/The-Maryland-Christian-Small-Business-Owners-Meetup-Group/) as we network for the benefit of 40 Miles for Autism (http://40milesforautism.blogspot.com/).
40 Miles for Autism, a fundraising campaign for Pathfinders for Autism (http://www.pathfindersforautism.org/), embodies the personal mission of Mike Shelah. Upon turning 40 years old in May, Mike Shelah (http://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=16513602&locale=en_US&trk=tyah) vowed to lose 40 pounds and run 40 miles in his quest to raise awareness and raise $40,000 for autism research. Mike documents his progress weekly in the 40 Miles for Autism blog (http://40milesforautism.blogspot.com/). All donations to Pathfinders for Autism, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, are tax-deductible.
Complimentary appetizers will be provided courtesy of our Meetup Sponsor, America's Favorite Small Business Contest (http://dell.to/mcmeetup). Our vendors for the event, Jenny Meyer of Premier Designs and Ann Brodeur of Arbonne have also graciously agreed to donate a portion of the event sales to the cause. The Umbrella Syndicate (http://www.absoluteentertainment.com/) will be providing event photography services.
In addition to our drawing for a $25 Ram's Head Tavern gift certificate, Rose Woodruff of Executive Decision Coaching and Ginger Loprete of Jacobs Gardner Office Supply will be donating door prizes. If you would like to donate a product or service to our door prize drawing please contact Evette Lewis through the Organizer's link (http://www.meetup.com/DC-MDSmallBusinessOwnerNetworking/members/10172618/).
All proceeds from the admission fee will be donated to Pathfinders for Autism. Admission $10 in advance; $15 at the door. Click here to reserve your $10 advance registration (http://monthlymondaymeetup.eventbrite.com/).
