Multi Chamber Mixer Held At Old World German Restaurant

Bringing together the Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Westminster, Fountain Valley, Costa Mesa, and Seal Beach chambers of commerce on August 27, 2009, the Multi Chamber Mixer successfully gathered six chambers of commerce together for a night of networking.

Held at the Old World German Restaurant, a Largest Mixer exhibitor at Orange County's Largest Mixer, the mixer had delicious food, was a great opportunity to check out the location, and, of course, was a fantastic opportunity for chamber members to mix and mingle with one another.

Ryan W. Smith, Marketing Manager of Alandale Insurance Agency, Leonard Gleason, Agent of Total Merchant Services, and Greg Solorio of Happy Hour Card were just a few of the people that we ran into at the mixer.

We'd like to thank Linda Martin for coming up with the idea and definitely look forward to the next one!
