Local Business Coalition Mixer - Phoenix

  • Desert Botanical Garden 1201 North Galvin Parkway Phoenix, AZ, 85008 United States

Join Local First Arizona on the Boppart Courtyard for an intimate evening of networking while enjoying springtime at the Desert Botanical Garden. Light refreshments will be provided by Atlasta catering and a cash bar will be available. We invite you to bring up to one guest with you!

A “Phoenix Point of Pride”, the Desert Botanical Garden is one of only a few botanical gardens accredited by the American Association of Museums. It is a privately funded, nonprofit organization and depends on revenues from admissions and gift shop sales, as well as contributions from individuals and businesses to fund its programs of environmental education, plant conservation and research.

Desert Botanical Garden is graciously opening admittance to its class that night with “rockstar” Director of Horticulture, Brian Kissinger, to Local First AZ members along with its Monarch Society members. This class will be held from 6:00-6:45p in Dorrance Hall, next to our event space. More details to follow; you will note your interest in the class on the RSVP link above.

What to expect? Our networking mixers are a great way to meet fellow members as well as the LFA staff. Meetings are held once a month from 6 – 8 p.m.  The first hour is dedicated to networking and at 7 p.m., we speak about everything that is happening within the organization and the local movement.  A new member orientation will take place at 5:30 p.m.
