HomeStyle Galleries Hosts 80 Local Business Leaders in Tucson

15217621405_611c732d93_zThis month, HomeStyle Galleries hosted our September Mixer. With over eighty folks in attendance this was one of our biggest mixers yet. Luckily, Catherene Morton, the owner of HomeStyle had more than enough tables and chairs for all of us! HomeStyle specializes in quality pre-owned, refurbished, and new factory direct furniture out of their Wilmot and Ina store locations. In addition to being a committed Local First Arizona member, HomeStyle also supports several other great organizations in our community.   Great food and margaritas were provided by El Saguarito and a wonderful time was had by all making connections with new folks and reconnecting with old ones. We had so much great news to share with the crowd!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESThrough our partnership with Wist Office Products, Local First was able to award a grant of over $2,200 to support workforce development by Primavera Works. For every LFA member that shops with locally owned Wist Office Products, Wist rebates back a portion of all purchases to LFA that we award quarterly to a non-profit member. If you are currently a Wist customer, please let them know you are an LFA member so we can continue this great program. If you are not a Wist customer, check them out here!

We also talked about some of our "not to miss" upcoming programs -
