Happy Thanksgiving!

As 2009 comes to an end, we look back on our accomplishments and the challenges we faced. Looking forward to holiday festivities also makes us excited to start the New Year. Neighborhood Networking plans to bring in the New Year with lots of new ideas for making even more business connections.

We would like to take the time to thank our attendees, as well as sponsors and raffle donors who helped to make Neighborhood Networking a success this year. We look forward to seeing you in 2010.

We hope you have a great holiday! Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you for your participation

This month Neighborhood Networking joined Sip & Give to network for a cause. The event drew a crowd who, not only made new business connections, but also gave back to the community. Sip & Give took place on Tuesday, Nov. 17th at Sully’s House in Lincoln Park. The event benefited Imerman Angels, an organization who provides one-on-one cancer support, connecting cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers.

We’d like to thank Jennifer Fortney of Cascade Communications in Chicago for putting together such a great event, and for inviting Neighborhood Networking to participate.
