To celebrate the launch and ignite the referral magic, local professionals are invited to a networking mixer on July 16, 2009, hosted by group leaders Caroline Callaway and Anne Carr.

“Like most business owners, I have attended numerous mixers and networking groups in order to build quality business referral relationships, but ABRA stands out because it combines the strengths of other organizations with a novel tracking system,” said Caroline Callaway, Owner, Bolt Public Relations. “Anne and I are thrilled to bring ABRA to the OC and connect with like-minded professionals who are in business to win.”

The inaugural chapter event will be held on Thursday, July 16 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Renaissance ClubSport (50 Enterprise, Aliso Viejo, CA 92656).
