Over 200 attended the CCCR Business 100 free business-to-business free networking event, “Getting Back to Business,” held Tuesday, August 29, 2017 at Shula’s Steak House, the main sponsor of the event, which provided an array of appetizers and a complimentary drink for each guest. Supporting sponsors included MedExpress Urgent Care and Brooks Insurance Services. The event featured a “Mystery Box” raffle with prizes ranging from gift cards to local restaurants to a handbag and a gift basket.
“The idea of these free networking events is to bring businesses together for the purpose of creating mutually beneficial relationships. People like to do business with people they know and trust. We provide these opportunities for anyone who is in business, regardless of size, several times a year. CCCR benefits, too, because some of those who attend become future supporters,” said Executive Director of CCCR, Niccole Howard.
Jeff Jerome, Director of Marketing and Sales for Shula’s Steak House Naples added, “We are pleased to have the opportunity to be the main sponsor of CCCR’s event. Not only does the event expose Shula’s to a wider audience, but in the bigger picture, it fulfills our commitment to serve community-based organizations, such as CCCR, reach their goals and fulfill their mission.”
