RHBA Spring Networking Event – May

Save the date!

Date: Thursday May 17, 2012
Time: 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Cost: $5 RHBA members – $10 Guests
Location: Arts and Cultural Council – 277 North Goodman St. – Rochester, NY

This year, we are trying a new venue for our Spring Networking event. The Arts and Council of Greater Rochester offers a beautiful gallery space where attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy of the current exhibit while enjoying of tapas and good conversation.

This is our traditionally called “Cinco de Mayo” celebration, but it seems a bit silly to still call it like that if it’s taking place almost two weeks after the date. What do you think? Should we keep the name or start a new tradition?
