The College’s Business Alumni Chapter held yet another successful “Traveling Happy Hour” on October 20th with more than seventy alumni mingling at Tarpon Bend in Coral Gables. Alumni and guests enjoyed complimentary drinks and appetizers from the event’s participating sponsors, Bacardi and Tarpon Bend. This is the second event of the networking series which are held the third Thursday of every month at upscale locations in the Brickell Avenue community and the heart of Coral Gables.
“It’s a great way to network with fellow alumni and business people in the South Florida area and keep in contact with the University,” said Alison Hegedus (BBA ’98), market research analyst at AvMed Health Plans.
Alumni not only “travel” throughout chic locations, but also, members of the Business Alumni Chapter are automatically entered into a raffle to win fabulous travel prizes, including two airline tickets to anywhere in the U.S. courtesy of TraveLeaders.
Each time members attend a Traveling Happy Hour event, they are entered into the drawing. Prizes will be raffled at the conclusion of the series.
Next month’s Traveling Happy Hour will be on November 17th at Mendoza Restaurant (1155 Brickell Bay Drive—Brickell and 12st on the Bay).
