As always we would like to start off by thanking everyone who came out in support of the CFMM, DREAMS of Wilmington and our local small business vendors for the August 27, 2016 Cape Fear Mix and Mingle event at Ironclad Brewery. Without your support events like this would not be able to happen and we love being able to give back to our community! Despite the August event being a “transitional” one for us, it was a wild success. I was in the middle of relocating to Massachusetts from North Carolina during the process of setting up for the next event and Jenn & Lizzie came on board to help out and become the ground team for the CFMM going forward. We appreciate everyone’s patience throughout the process while we worked out exactly how the event would be run remotely with two new people on board and although the event was smaller than our usual events we were very happy with the turnout as a whole. Vendors came and set up, our non-profit raised awareness and funds to provide services and educational programs for our local youth, and a good time was had by all! Although I could not be there in person for this event (which broke my heart as I look forward to each and every CFMM event), Jenn and Lizzie did an amazing job facilitating the event with little guidance from me, they are amazing ladies and I don’t know what I would have done without them (hug them for me if you see them around town! LOL).
We are gearing up for the next CFMM event already (November will be here before you know it), so in the meantime, thank you again to everyone who participated, posted pictures, shared videos and promoted the event. We are looking forward to the next event and will see you in November!
