L.A.'s Largest Mixer® XII Unites Thousands of Local Business People for Networking Event of the Season

On Thursday, July 22, 2010, L.A.'s Largest Mixer® celebrated its twelfth year of networking success. Held at the Shrine Auditorium, the Ultimate Business Networking Event® boasted over 225 exhibitors and 2500 attendees. The huge numbers made for a whirlwind networking experience that never left a single moment of silence. Multiple bars and restaurants/caterers added great food and drinks for everyone to enjoy. To top it all off, a networking lounge put on by the SBA (U.S. Small Business Administration) provided everyone with a cool place to sit down, network, and just enjoy the event atmosphere.

With the mixer over, the cards have been drawn and the winners have been selected! Congratulations to the following lucky people (in no particular order):

Michelle Quintero, Senior Account Executive of Momentous Insurance Brokerage, Inc.
Michael Zeledon, Business Development Executive of SCE Federal Credit Union
