The Niagara River Region Chamber of Commerce is hosting a business "Blender" and Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours ride on Thursday, July 18.
The "Blender," renown for a great night of networking for business owners, is open to the public from 5 to 7 p.m. on the Water Street Landing patio. Anyone is interested in mingling and delving into the local business life can participate in the event for the small fee of $5 upon arrival.
Additionally, a cash bar will be open for all attendants, and complimentary appetizers will be served.
Those interested in attending the "Blender" should bring a surplus of business cards to spread the word about their companies and to enter into the business raffle to become eligible for prizes.
The event kicks off at 3:30 p.m. sharp for the jetboat departure, which is followed by the Blender at 5 p.m. Availability for the Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours ride is limited to the first 54 reservations, and only two seats are available per business. Reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis. Contact the chamber in order to reserve your seat on the boat as soon as possible.
Tickets for the boat ride are $25 each, and must be prepaid by July 12. For more information or to purchase your ticket, contact Linda at the Chamber of Commerce at 716-754-9500, ext. 10, or email Linda@NiagaraRiverRegion.com.
