We’ve got our 5th Anniversary party coming up in a few days (December 5th) and we thought we’d give you five good reasons to come . . .
Reason #1: It’s our 5th anniversary! We’ve accomplished a lot in the last five years and it feels like time for a party where we celebrate with the people (that’s you) who made it all possible and who make Edmonton such an amazing place to be.
Reason #2: The Venue + Music + Appies. If you haven’t been to the Kasbar yet (pictured right) . . . it’s amazing. It’s like 1001 Arabian Nights meets Steam Punk meets urban chiq. It’s the coolest place in Edmonton that no one’s ever been to. If you haven’t been there, it’s worth coming just to see it. The incredible decor will be backed up by the mellow beats of the DJ to Edmonton’s progressive scene – DJ Polyesterday. Plus, your ticket gets you plenty of appies & tapas.
Reason #3: Meet amazing people. This party is a chance to mingle with the leaders of Edmonton’s arts, sustainable business, local food scene, social entrepreneurs, eco-adventurers, green artists and media activists and more. It’s a chance to connect with old friends and the who’s who of Edmonton’s bad ass do gooders. But, with 120 people there’s a chance you won’t get to meet everyone – so how will make sure you meet the people you need to meet?
Here’s how: we’ll have 3-4 people playing the role of connectors. The connectors are some of Edmonton’s most well connected people in the local, progressive scene and their role will be specifically to ask you, ‘What kind of people do you want to meet?’ and then introduce you to them (perfect for wallflowers). Who exactly is going to be there? Go and see here (scroll to the bottom).
This party offers you an innovative and casual approach to networking with the aim of celebrating success, sharing ideas and knowledge, creating strategic partnerships and gathering to promote the growth of Edmonton’s green economy – while enjoying a bevy or two!
Reason #4: There are only 30 tickets left. We have 90 people coming so far. So if everyone who’d already bought a ticket wanted to bring a friend there wouldn’t be room. #justsayin – If you have a friend or colleague who might want to come, now is the time to tell them. Just send them here. We will likely have to turn people away at the door on the night of the event.
Reason #5: $3000 in door prizes you’ll have a solid chance at winning. Three. Thousand. Dollars. Check them out here: https://thelocalgood.ca/your-wish-list-thelocal5th-party-door-prize-list/
