Mega Christmas party for small business owners
Small business owners often miss out on office Christmas festivities as they may be the only person in their business, or have a small team and having a Christmas party is not an option.
But this year, they’re all invited to attend an event that brings local small business owners together to celebrate Christmas and the end to a challenging 2020.
Organised by Toowoomba business owner Terri Adams-Munn, founder of Ten Thousand Dreams, this will be the second year the Small Business Christmas Party has run.
“As a small business owner I recognise that this time of year is one for celebration, but without a team to celebrate it with, myself and other small business owners simply skip through December without taking time to have an office party or Christmas celebration,” she said.
“2020 has been a tough year and this is a great opportunity to celebrate the year that was and Christmas. We’ve made it through, so let’s come together to celebrate.”
Ms Adams-Munn runs a monthly networking group through the Meet Up platform and the Christmas event is an extension of this.
“They say it takes a village to raise a child, and it takes a community to assist you to build a business,” she said.
“Small business owners benefit from a community that offers support and connection, and where they can explore ideas and chase their dreams. Having access to this leads to better businesses.”
The event has much to offer and will also support the local charity Blush Cancer Care with a multi-draw raffle.
The main prize for the raffle is a cake made by locally renowned cake maker Merivale Cakes and Crafts.
There will be trade tables for up to 20 businesses to display their goods and services and each entry ticket will include a drink and nibbles throughout the duration of the evening, as well as an entry for lucky door prizes.
“This is an important event and I hope we can reach many local businesses to let them know they’re not alone,” she said.
“They can celebrate their business and Christmas in a supportive and connected community and build new business connections at the same time.”
It will be held on Friday, December 4 from 6.30pm to 9.30pm at the University of Southern Queensland.
Tickets for the event are available until Friday and can be purchased for $20 at https://bit.ly/2HeOkcl.
