We'll go around the circle for everyone to introduce themselves and what they do for a max of 30 seconds and then everyone is free to break off and chat with whomever they want. It's casual and no-pressure. Just a chance to make new friends, biz contacts and an opportunity for HUGs to connect offline. Here are pics from our last event so you can get an idea...

What to Bring: We are raising money to end cancer and are asking each guest to donate a minimum $5 to the cause. With so many fab women getting together, it also gives us an opportunity to donate to a worthy charity. Thanks to Marie at KarmaCake for offering to co-host this event with us!
Reservation/Bills etc: Since it's the patio, they can't really 'save' us seats. But I will show up early and sprawl out my stuff. Once everyone arrives, I'm sure we can slowly take over more seats on the patio. Please bring cash or order from the bar as we cannot guarantee separate bills. If it rains, we will be in the lounge...
