When you walked into the event you were given a goodie bag – full of pipe cleaners, crayons, stickers, a puzzle piece, and a raffle ticket.Name tags were color coordinated, mine was green – for entrepreneurs and those working in the social field.
I found this event through Twitter, and told my friend Vipin about it. He purchases a ringleader set of tickets and brought me along, with his friend Jamal. Vipin is building a tool to help people accomplish their dreams, ProgressBar
The room was full of popcorn icebreakers; such as this one, which spurred a great conversation about urban cycling!
Amy’s friend, Charlotte, makes food beautiful. She’s a trained chef who helps established brands display their food. She also makes chandeliers out of cow bones and dresses out of salmon skin.
Before the raffle was drawn more ticked were awarded. The team who made the biggest bug out of pipe cleaners was awarded an extra ticket.
I happened to win one of the raffles! It looks like I’ll be taking a hike thanks to Discover Outdoors!
