This email is a reminder that on Saturday (March 9th), we will be hosting our first anniversary gala, and YOU are invited! It is my hope that I will see as many of you as possible at this event, which serves to mark the remarkable progress we have made as one of Charlotte's premier Meetup groups.
One year ago some close, wonderful friends of mine and myself were sitting at my apartment sipping beers and trying to come up with names and a mission. Now we have almost 1,200 people (we WILL have 1,200 by the time this rolls around). That's 3 people a day, every day, for a year...all finding us and meeting new people, making friends, and experiencing the best Charlotte has to offer. It's our intent to keep offering this service because we love the company of the best Meetup group in town.
Please make a special effort to come out to see us on this special night. The founders will be there, food will be served (at some expense to us, and donations to recoup expenses are appreciated but are NOT required). We know this is on a Saturday night, and the notice is a little short at 3 weeks. But work us into your Saturday evening plans and I promise you won't be disappointed.
Thank you all for making this Meetup the best around. All my best and closest friends in town have come from these events, and it brings me great delight to see all the friendships we've facilitated since last March. Here's to 2013, and another year of exciting new events with the people I know and love.
