It’s Christmas Biz MiXer Time In The City

Another year is quickly coming to a close, but what a year it has been! Many challenges faced Windsor Essex business owners from tornadoes, floods, increased hydro costs and more. However, there was plenty of good news too as our pages were filled with success stories throughout 2016.

Here at the magazine, we always wrap up our last edition of the year on a high note, honouring our Biz X Award winners and nominees. From the day the awards nominations opened in mid-July, to when the voting poll was underway for two weeks in September, we discover how many local entrepreneurs are working hard to be #1 in their chosen fields.

With thousands of website votes coming in for 222 nominees — 31 alone in the “2016 Powerhouse Professional” category — it is such a great feeling for us to recognize the best our region has to offer.

While our gala in November is a celebration for the 24 overall award winners, our “Christmas Biz MiXer” in December is open to all nominees and local biz pros.

This fifth annual Christmas Biz MiXer takes place Friday December 16, 2016 at Ariius NightClub (inside Caesars Windsor) from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

For just $20 per person (paid at the door) the evening includes delicious appetizers from Eddy’s Mediterranean Bistro, a drink ticket, door prizes, free valet parking and lots of networking opportunities.

This year we are donating $5 per ticket to Street Help Homeless Centre of Windsor, 964 Wyandotte Street East (see “Street Help” on “Facebook”). Street Help Administrator Christine Wilson-Furlonger tells me their “Street Patrol is made up of some volunteers, but mostly I hire the homeless to work with the homeless. Our patrol team gives out information on the Street Help Shelter or gives the homeless, coats, food, socks, shoes or sleeping bags that are stored in the Street Patrol company minivan.”
