Monthly Meeting at Allegro. MUST RSVP to attend! Thank you!

  • Yesterday · 11:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please join us for our next meeting on December 6th, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. We will meet at Allegro Bistro, 1740 E. Venice Ave. in Venice!  This will be our Holiday celebration with a special menu! We will be having a wonderful buffet prepared specially for us! 

December Buffet Menu:

Salad

Lemon Chicken

Penne Vodka

Veggie Marinade

Mini Cannolis

The cost for this month's special Holiday buffet will be $21.00 ($1.00 discount for paying cash). All credit card payments MUST be paid in advance through PayPal – please ask for an invoice before 12/04/16) CASH ONLY at the door – Sorry, NO CHECKS.

We would also like to share our Blessings with those less fortunate this month.  So, if you are so inclined, you will have your choice of donating a $10 gift card from Walmart or Target to The Twig Warehouse - they are a local "boutique" that provides clothing to foster children. They are hoping to give each child who comes into their store on their monthly shopping day in December a $10 gift card. This charitable donation is being sponsored by Green Apple Salon.

The other charity option we have is United Way of South Sarasota County. They are collecting the following items for needy seniors in our area: blankets, laundry detergent, toilet paper and other toiletries like shampoo, soap, toothpaste. Additionally, they have a few seniors who enjoy adult coloring books. You may also simply give cash/check and they will purchase necessary items for you.

It is my hope that we, as a group, can band together and present both of these worthwhile organizations a donation from our group of awesome local business women. Thank you so much for your consideration.

Because our group is growing and the restaurant can only accommodate a certain number of us, we are limiting our meetings to 60 attendees. This is also the only way we can all get our 30 second "infomercials" in during our allotted time. Therefore, it is very important that you RSVP. Also, please note that if you RSVP and then do not cancel at least 24 hours in advance so that someone on the "wait list" can be offered your spot, you will be considered a "no show". Two no shows in a year and you will be required to prepay for future meetings that you wish to attend. This rule will ONLY be enforced if we are forced to turn away any RSVP's because we have reached our maximum of 60 attendees. We hope you understand.

We will have our usual 50/50 chance drawing so bring extra money!

Door prizes to promote your business are always welcome!

    Sorry I can't attend. Meeting time conflicts with my husband's Rotary meeting. We can't leave our business unattended.
