Thursday, June 18, was the Santee Chamber of Commerce’s monthly After-5 Mixer. This time the hosts were the folks at RiverView MD Spa, located in the new business center just north of the Santee Trolley Center. By now, everyone should know what the mixer is and why it’s important for business owners to pop in and network. But just in case you haven’t read a previous Mixer review, this is where ideas start, collaborations get off the ground, and information is shared. Plus, it’s a lot of fun to meet with other people who have similar goals and challenges.
As always, the Mixer included some good eats – this time provided in part by Olive Garden. The event finished off with the raffle drawing – winners were Greg Hagen of Smoothie King (passes on the Bahia Belle), Dan O’Brien of O’Brien Insurance (a Kids Fun Pack from Santee Lakes), Erica Bozic-O’Brien of RiverView MD Spa (In-N-Out Goodie Pack), Richelle Lopez of Extra Space Storage (free night at the new Rodeway Inn), and Ronn Hall of Ronn Hall Insurance (50/50 Drawing). The Membership Drawing business was the Original Roadhouse Grill, but since they were not present the prize rolls over to next month. By the way, when a business is pulled for the Membership Drawing, but is not present, they are pulled out of the drawing until someone comes to a Mixer and puts it back in the box. Another good reason to come every time.
