If you missed the first ConnectOC event back in February, be sure to mark your calendar for this Thursday’s event which will draw 500 people from all over Orange County to one spot – the Hilton Hotel in Costa Mesa at 3050 Bristol St. Why do you want attend? Where else can you be in a relaxed comfortable environment to exchange business cards, make new friends, and possibly find your next big opportunity?
This no-cost event promoted solely via social media channels like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube starts at 6PM and is expected to end around 10PM. Parking is $5 and proceeds from the parking and silent auctions (expected to raise about $5,000) will be donated to two local charities: Build Futures and Child Help. Read more about this event on this blog post by Ted Nguyen, one of the founders of ConnectOC and a big influencer of social media in Orange County.
