April 22nd was a celebration for members of Clients and Cocktails Networking. This particular Friday marked the 100th event.
On Friday, April 22nd PRowl Communications was pleased to host the 100th Clients and Cocktails Networking Event taking place on this occasion at M.T. Bellies in Welland.
The occasion was celebrated with many of the regulars and a few new members attending as well. Taking small business owners away from their business every Friday to network is a challenge, yet Clients and Cocktails has been doing it for over 2 years now. Each Friday, members of the group get together to discuss marketing challenges within their business and learn about the other businesses within the group. It is a very casual setting over drinks at a local pub or restaurant.
I thought it appropriate to have a little more for the 100th event, asking one of our favourite restaurant owners John Clark of M.T. Bellies to host the event for his. We're all about casual and mingling, so mixed and mingled at the Bar - during supper hour it was a little crowded but still fun for all. A big thank you to Troy, our server for keeping on top of our orders.
I would like to thank the following members for their door prize donations:
- Bob Murden - Riverstone Home Improvements (I hope that's right) - won by Arianna Smith
- Debbie Barnes - Port Robinson Proud - wine and gift bag, won by Denise Guerette, Gail Todd, and Dina Arsenault

A special thank you also to Denise Guerette for the absolutely awesome Owl Rock she presented me with! I love it - you know me and my owls!
Thank you everyone for coming out and helping to celebrate this milestone with me. 100 Clients and Cocktails. WOW!
