The event was part networking, part informational and part fundraising (the event was free, but attendees could choose to donate to Small Can Be Big an organization dedicated to harnessing the power of small donations to have a big impact on families facing a one time need. 100% of every donation goes to a specific expense for a family in need. The funds raised at this event went to a family affected by the Marathon Bombings.
The event was a lot of fun, and I was so excited it was at Shojo, which I've wanted to try for awhile! We were able to sample several delicious dishes from the appetizer / small plates menu.
|BLT with Proscuitto|
|Chilled Corn Soup with Candied Walnuts|
|Almond Encrusted Shrimp Balls with Mint Dipping Sauce|
There were also some creative and tasty orange cocktails! My favorite was this take on a Moscow Mule.
For dessert there was a candy buffet with takeout containers to bring it home with you, and the event would have been complete without the Eventbrite - themed fortune cookies (it was after all in Chinatown)!
It was a great time! Not only can Eventbrite help with your party, but they sure know how to throw one!
