L.A.'s Largest Mixer XII Hosts VIP Kick-off Event at La Fonda on Wilshire

Last Wednesday over 200 sponsors and exhibitors got the very special privilege of attending the VIP Kick-off Event for L.A.'s Largest Mixer® XII. Hosted at the La Fonda on Wilshire, the night was filled with fabulous Mexican cuisine which included fresh guacamole and chips, artfully displayed spoonfuls of ahi tuna, and some of the best ceviche the Largest Mixer® staff has had to date. All of that, in combination with the lively atmosphere and what's known as the home for the best mariachi music in LA, and you have yourself quite the networking experience.

To add even more excitement to the evening, there was also a business card raffle giveaway opportunity. Prizes included a two night stay at the Primm Valley Resort including either two 90-minute massages or two rounds of golf, a two night stay at the Avi Resort & Casino, a one night stay at the Inn at Playa Del Rey, Gift Certificates from La Fonda on Wilshire, and eight Chivas USA vs. Columbus tickets courtesy of W690 Radio.

While the lucky winners of the giveaway were already announced near the end of the evening, here they are again so that they can all show their friends for full internet bragging rights. In no particular order:

Rick Rodriguez, President of Cloud Nine Balloons
Manuel Meza of La Fonda on Wilshire
Jammie Hsu, Solutions Provider of Proforma
Erica Manasan, Client Services Director of Manasan Law Group, PC
Howard Benenson of Deals for Good

Thanks so much to all of the companies that provided the giveaway prizes and congratulations to all of our winners! We hope (and know) that you'll enjoy your giveaway prizes. Speaking of thanks, the VIP Kick-off event could not have been possible without the generous support of our kick-off sponsors: La Fonda on Wilshire, Momentous Insurance Brokerage Inc., House of Designers, and the U.S. Small Business Administration. Your support has been and still is greatly appreciated!

Special shout out goes to Karla of La Fonda on Wilshire for being a fantastic hostess and for helping make the VIP Kick-off event such a success! With the kick-off as big as it was, we're fairly certain that this is a sign that the main event on Thursday, July 22, 2010, is going to be much ado about something. That being said, lucky for you it's not too late--sign up for your booth today before they're all sold out!!
