The CCCR Business 100, an exclusive group of local businesses that supports Collier Child Care Resources’ (CCCR) early childhood education programs, will host a free business-to-business networking event “Getting Back to Business,” to be held on Tuesday, August 29, 2017 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Shula’s Steak House Naples, located at 5111 Tamiami Trail N, Naples, FL 34103. Shula’s is the main sponsor of the event; supporting sponsors include MedExpress Urgent Care and Brooks Insurance Services. Free appetizers and one complimentary drink will be offered. RSVP by Friday, August 25 to Tiffany Cawley at firstname.lastname@example.org or call CCCR at 239-643-3908.
The CCCR Business 100 annual members’ donations provide partial scholarship assistance for the children of working parents who fall below the federal poverty level and cannot afford quality care and education. CCCR operates four early childhood development centers in Collier County: Child’s Path, Little Wonders, and A Step Up at Golden Gate and Immokalee High Schools.
“The idea of these free networking events is to bring businesses together for the purpose of creating mutually beneficial relationships. People like to do business with people they know and trust. We provide these opportunities for anyone who is in business, regardless of size, several times a year. CCCR benefits, too, because some of those who attend become future supporters,” said Executive Director of CCCR, Niccole Howard.
Jeff Jerome, Director of Marketing and Sales for Shula’s Steak House Naples added, “We are pleased to have the opportunity to be the main sponsor of CCCR’s event. Not only does the event expose Shula’s to a wider audience, but in the bigger picture, it fulfills our commitment to serve community-based organizations, such as CCCR, reach their goals and fulfill their mission.”
