July Tucson Mixer Recap: What a Pleasant Surprise!

The Independents Week edition of the monthly mixer in Tucson was a great success! Many more business owners came out on the eve of the Fourth of July than expected. Susan Gamble and the staff of Santa Theresa Tile Works hosted a great party. Susan grilled hot dogs and provided a great indoor picnic. Her staff gave out mosaic kits to four winners. The Local First volunteers sold raffle tickets for a 50/50 cash raffle and raffled off donated growlers from new business, The Tap and BottleMonkey Burger made a generous donation of three types of gourmet sliders and house made potato chips. Local First Tucson Manager, Deanna Chevas, announced the success of the Golden Coupon promo and the roll out of the Localist program in the fall. Localists will be individual members of Local First Arizona who pay a nominal fee in support of the cause and gain access to exclusive opportunities. If your business would like to be am early adopter and offer a VIP opportunity to Localists, please contact Deanna at 520-333-2073 or [email protected].

Local First Arizona mixers are a great way to connect with other local business owners for referrals and support. Join us in east Tucson on August 7 for a special mixer with an Arizona wine tasting at art bar, Creative Juice. Gallifant Cellars will come from Sonoita to share and talk about their wines. Renee's Organic Oven will supply gourmet pizza and the ladies of Create Juice will demonstrate what they offer. This is a unique business in Tucson, offering a different sort of evening out with painting classes while enjoying a glass of wine. Creative Juice also has kids classes and camps.
