Just a few of the people that we met at the event were Randi Caporale, Operations Manager of Candy Crate, Inc., Rosanne Weathers of myMEdiacharge Web Design, and Debbie A. Cannon of High Desert Resource Network.
The Largest Mixer has been a proud member of the Hesperia Chamber of Commerce for nearly three years, so it delights us to be able to say that the Hesperia Chamber of Commerce has been a sponsor of ours for nearly three years as well!
We'd like to especially thank Yvonne for all that she does in promoting economic growth in the high desert.
My Run, the inspirational story of Terry Hitchcock, debuted its first screening last night at the Regency Fairfax Cineplex. The screening was an intimate, red carpet event hosted by the film's associate producer (and Largest Mixer supporter!) Christine Redlin. The guest list featured cast members (including the Hitchcock family), celebrities, friends, family, and several other invited guests.
My Run, directed by Tim Vandesteeg, tells the remarkable story of a man who, after tragically losing his wife to breast cancer, ran 75 marathons in 75 consecutive days to raise awareness and support for single parent families. Throughout Terry's journey from Minnesota to Atlanta, we are all reminded that human beings can accomplish anything that they put their minds to--all we need is someone to show us that it's possible.
Upon conclusion of the film, a short reception was held and many thanks were given to all of the film's sponsors and those involved in the making of this very special motion picture. A special thank you was extended to Billy Bob Thornton, the film's narrator, as well as Christine Redlin, Vandesteeg’s mother, and the film's Producer, Mark Castaldo. Other appreciations were extended to the Minnesota Twins, Sun Country Airlines, local chambers of commerce, as well as the cancer and single parent foundations that continue to support Terry throughout his quest to better the future for our children.
In closing, My Run left audience members with uplifted spirits and a new perspective on what can be achieved if we set our minds to it. All in all it was truly a night to remember.

The Largest Mixer recently attended the Century City Chamber of Commerce's 2nd annual Summer in the City Networking Night. Sponsored by Pink Taco and held on their outdoor patio at Westfield Century City, the event proved to be a huge success. Dozens of contacts were exchanged as people enjoyed the array of food that Pink Taco provided.
The Largest Mixer recently attended the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce's networking event held at Mijares Mexican Restaurant. Mijares is a family owned hacienda-style restaurant that has been situated in Pasadena for nearly a century. The only thing better than the authentic Mexican food was the networking opportunity that this event provided. There were crowds of people all ready to enjoy the delicious food and network the night away.
Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce's Business @ Sunset Mixer Successfully Hosted by Santa Monica Sports Medicine
Hosted by Santa Monica Sports Medicine and Dr. Mary Trumpi, this year's Santa Monica Chamber Mixer was a huge success. Having already thrown a great event last year, Santa Monica Sports medicine didn't disappoint. With a vibrant crowd, tasty appetizers, and even live music, there was lots of mingling to be done. If that wasn't enough, the mixer also provided complimentary chair massages, nutritional evaluations, postural and injury assessments to everyone in attendance.
