this last year, the German Mixer has become the “in” place
for Germans, Austrians, Swiss, and their friends to meet in Orange
County. On the first Wednesday of every month, more than 50 people
regularly join the Mixer for private and professional networking.
The recent celebration party featured a complimentary
happy hour buffet and the usual networking was refreshed by Schlager
as Neue Deutsche Welle music. The recent formation of German
American Business Association (GABA) Southern California introduced
itself at the event to the German-American business community.
Highlight of the celebration was a raffle drawing. Prizes such as
a bike, various gift certificates, fruit and gourmet baskets, cosmetics,
CDs, and more found their lucky winners. Overall, the event was a
great success and feedback showed that the German speaking community
very much appreciates the monthly networking opportunities.
German Mixer would like to thank the following sponsors for supporting
the anniversary and turning it into a memorable event: Web
The St. Regis Monarch
Beach Resort & Spa, Law
Offices of Suzanne G. Brummett, Hurley
Mood Food, Gunda
Jahromi with Morgan Stanley, Janssen
Beauty USA, Talking
Hands Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, FlyPR, and rapidearmusic
Many thanks go also to the volunteers Carol Horn, Nayiry Manouchakian
and others for their support to organize and run the event.
Please spread the word! The German Mixer is not funded, nor do we
spend money on advertisement. We also do not take admission at the
usual networking events and would like to keep it this way. The event
is organized by volunteers. Get in touch with us, if you are interested
in volunteering or in becoming a co-host of a German Mixer event.
I am looking forward to the next exciting year of bringing together
the German speaking community in Orange County. I am happy and even
more encouraged when I realize how private friendships and business
relationships begin and develop through our events.
Ich wünsche Euch weiterhin viel
Spass beim mixen und mingeln!
