So, yes…I’m Bayer Center staff, but I would attend this event even if I weren’t! Here’s why I think you should come:
#10: Good networking opportunity – lots of nonprofit (and some for-profit) peeps in one place. A great way to say hello to those you know and to make new friends!
#9: Food and drink. Wine, beer, and hors d’oeuvres – yum! In my mind, very necessary items for an after-work event.
#8: It’s a celebration AND fundraiser (our first ever, actually), so your ticket cost is going to a really good cause and helps us continue to help the nonprofit community.
#7: The entire Bayer Center staff will be there. All of us in one place at the same time is a rare event in itself – we are usually all over the place, consulting, teaching, etc.
#6: Bricolage has been commissioned to create a performance especially for this event. I don’t even know what they are doing, but I checked out their past performances/creations on their website and they do some fun and crazy stuff! This is not-to-be-missed!
#5: No talking heads. When we started planning this event, we swore we’d not put people through two hours of speech-making and we are sticking to that promise.
#4: We’re giving something special away to everyone who comes. I know what it is, but I’m not telling. You’ll like it.
#3: You’ll get to see the new August Wilson Center if you haven’t been there before. It’s lovely!
#2: There will be cake. Who doesn’t like cake?
#1: YOU are the reason for our success. We want you to celebrate with us!
