In other networking activity, Mercantil Commercebank hosted their 3rd Annual Tri- County Networker at Seminole Hard Rock Casino on that same Thursday. The celebration was attended by hundreds of members from 17 different chambers of commerce and business organizations. It was a networking bonanza for those enjoying the food and drink at this beautiful 3rd annual affair during which heads of these organizations were asked to join the folks from Mercantil Commercebank on stage to receive a lovely recognition award.
Coincidentally, that same night Coral Gables Business Improvement District held its annual Taste of the Gables at the Westin Colonnade where guests enjoyed sampling food from some of the Gables best eateries. Congratulations to Chief Diego Solano and Bulla Gastrobar for taking top prize at the event being named Best Taste of the Gables 2015.
Raising money for worthy causes is what service organizations are all about. The Coral Gables Woman’s Club has a broad membership from around South Florida. On June 12, the group with friends gathered for a Karaoke Night at their clubhouse to raise funds for the Ann Storck Center that is dedicated to enriching the lives of children and adults with developmental disabilities. Orchestrated by Eneida Rivera, this first time event is sure to be followed by more as it was a great success. Among the dozens seen enjoying the evening were Ralph and Iris Rivera, Clauda Coupet, Carmen Suarez, Margie Shanti, Eddie Snow, John Burns, Barbara Lapsley, and Joannie Knight, to mention a few.
Until next time, keep making each day count.
