Greater Wilmington Chamber Mega Business After Hours - 11/17/09

They just keep getting better and better. Last night's Mega Business After Hours at the Coastline Convention Center, sponsored by the Greater Wilmington Chamber of Commerce drew an enthusiastic, sizable crowd.

The first people we saw went we entered were newly elected Wilmington City Councilman Charlie Rivenbark and his fiance Dana Fisher.

David Merrill of Hertz was in the middle of the action as usual. David has teased me that lately I've mostly included photos of his back or side at networking events, so I'm making up for it in this post, I hope. David is also the guy who started and manages the very helpful Wilmington Networking Events Calendar.

Rick Huston of U-First and David Merrill.

Mary Bennies of the still new but already successful Town Planner community calendar.

Amanda Smith of Glasgow Hicks Insurance Agency, attorney Jonathan Washburn, and Charlie Rivenbark.

Marge Brown of SendOutCards and Steve West of N2 Publishing.

That's Michael Moore's mom, Jeannette Raines and vendor Mike Kress of Auto Supply Co., Inc. in Michael's booth (Michael of course is the guy on the right).

Here's another smiling Michael, the dappper Michael Byrd of WordWright Web.

Nelly Webb of Tuscany Tile & Design and Jim Tuzzeo of Blueprint Financial Advisory Group.

Yet another fine, well-attended event by the Greater Wilmington Chamber of Commerce. Thanks to Vera, Connie, and everyone who made it possible.
