Since announcing our return o Gulf Greyhound Park for the 2017 Magical Winter Lights, we have been reaching out to various communities around the Houston area to spread the word about our wonderful event! We know 2017 will be Magical Winter Lights best year yet, and we want to make sure all of Houston gets to enjoy it!
For this reason, we recently became chamber members in Galveston, Texas City-La Marque, and The Woodlands communities. Last week, the PG team members attended networking events through the chambers to promote MWL and the great city of La Marque it resides in!
First up was the Woodlands Chamber! Each month, they host a Networking Breakfast at Flemings. It’s a great event that is open to all Chamber members and guests where people in attendance are giving the opportunity to give a 60 second commercial on the microphone. Each Networking Breakfast event is set around a theme to tie your commercial around. Last week’s theme was “Who inspires you”, and members were encouraged to tie in their commercial with the theme.
Overall it was a great experience! Flemings provided a delicious, buffet-style breakfast that included french toast, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, fresh fruit and yogurt, PG got to chat with some great companies including Amerejuve and Cubesmart. Our 60 commercial was a brief, introductory speech on what Magical Winter Lights is and where it is located. At the end of the breakfast, there was raffle to win great door prizes provided by the businesses in attendance, as well as a winner for “Most Creative Commercial”. Some pictures from the event are below.
On Thursday, May 18th, PG also attended Galveston’s chamber mixer held at the Rosenberg Library. There were drink and snacks provided and was a great first-time event! There were around 25 business representatives in attendance, and PG got to chat with companies like, Save 1900 and Edward Jones.. Below are some photos from the event.
We are thrilled to start involving ourselves with different communities around the Houston area. Our goal is to be active chamber members in each respective area and begin promoting/networking on behalf of our great event Magical Winter Lights, Gulf Greyhound Park and the City of La Marque. Stay tuned via our website, Facebook and blog for more updates on MWL 2017!
