Save the Date: 2014 Triangle Merry Mingle

5th Annual Merry Mingle Holiday Event: Tuesday, December 2, 2014

Raleigh, NC (October 20, 2014) – Get set to celebrate another holiday season with the leading marketing, advertising and communications Trade Associations in the Triangle! Join the Triangle AdFed (previously AAF-RDU), Ad2, AIGA Raleigh, Triangle Interactive Marketing Association (TIMA), Triangle American Marketing Association (AMA), and Triangle UXPA for a networking and fundraising holiday party. This year the festivities will take place at The Stockroom, 230 Fayetteville Street, 2nd Floor, in Downtown Raleigh, N.C., Tuesday, December 2nd from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Serving not just as a networking opportunity for all marketing, advertising, communications and public relations professionals across the market, this popular holiday event will also directly benefit the Triangle Spokes Group, a locally based non-profit organization. Throughout the year, the Triangle Spokes Group raises money to buy new bicycles for need-worthy children throughout the Triangle, then delivers them just in time for the holidays.

“We are very excited to extend this event into 2014,” said Amber Frasketi, Event Co-Chair. “We believe that the Triangle Spokes Group is a wonderful organization that will bring joy into the hearts of many children this holiday season, and we couldn’t be more pleased to help support their cause for a fourth year.”

“The Triangle Spokes Group is honored to have been selected again as this year’s benefiting organization,” said Jenn Nowalk, Triangle Spokes Group Co-Founder. “We believe this year’s event will be just as rewarding for the kids as in years past.”

Tickets to the event are $20 for members of the hosting organizations, $25 for non-members and $35 for everyone at the door. All proceeds will benefit the Triangle Spokes Group.

In addition to our presenting organizations, additional, confirmed sponsors for this year’s Merry Mingle include French West Vaughan and Brand Fuel.
