#hugTO May Networking Event @ The Drake Sky Yard

Over 40 amazing hip + urban girls participated in our May Networking Event at The Drake Hotel's Sky Yard Patio on Monday night.  We also did a little multi-tasking that night and raised $163 for the Canadian Cancer Society from all the donations made by the ladies.  

Sunny patio + $2.86 beer + positive fantastic people = great night out.  We have  diverse array of entrepreneurs, urban professionals and students within our blog readers.  So who was there?  We had naturopaths, a DJ, bloggers, photographers, wedding planners, HR consultant, a videographer, stylists, writers, make-up artists, billing & account managers, marketing reps, a lawyer, magazine editor, cake designer, an illustrator, PR & communication people and fashion designers...just to name a few!

The Hip & Urban Girl's Guide throws a fab networking event every month.  Our only criteria is that no bad attitudes are allowed!  Pretty simple.  So feel free to come and network with us.  We have many people who show up who don't know anybody!  But we are an open, friendly and welcoming group - that's the point of women supporting other women.

What do we talk about?  Work, life, celebrity gossip...whatevs.  We are a casual networking group giving our readers a chance to connect offline.  How does it work?  Everyone goes around and introduces themselves and what they do, then we break off and everyone can chat with whomever they want. 

Our next event is the the sold-out SATC 2 VIP Screening + Networking Party on May 27th.  Couldn't get tickets?  Look out for a giveaway-a-day leading up to the event!  You can still win an awesome prize.  We are also re-designing the website and celebrating the official launch of our blog, The Hip & Urban Girl's Guide.  A very BIG party is coming your way, so keep checking back for details.

You can follow our events on twitter under the hashtag #hugTO or blog updates @hipurbangirl.  You can also send us an email to get on the mailing list for our events.  Hope to see you at the next one!  xoxo --- Lisa & Wendy
