The Greater Lansing Hispanic Chamber of Commerce held their November Mixer at the Crowne Plaza on Thursday, November 21, 2013. In what was billed as a celebration of a partnership between Big Brothers and Big Sisters (BBBS) and the GLHCC, Century 21 Looking Glass sponsored the event which had about 60 people in attendance according to Letricia Rodriguez who coordinated the Mixer.The evening was filled with light appetizers, a cash bar, various community leaders such as recently appointed Ingham County Commissioner Bryan Crenshaw and Linda Lee Tarver from the Secretary of State Office. I spoke with Carlos Rubio and Alicia Barajas who both work with BBBS, and their excitement was quite evident as both expressed the need for their Agency to match kids with Latino “Brothers” and “Sisters”. BBBS Executive Director Phillip Knight spoke about the impact of a BBBS in the community and its potential for long term success on a child. All and all a great night for all who attended.The Chamber wishes to invite everyone to their 1st Annual 2013 Holiday Gala which will be held Friday, December 20, 2013 at the Crowne Plaza on Lansing’s west side. Tickets are $35.00 which includes a dinner served to your table and dancing.
