Join Us at Red Stick Social

While most SME luncheons feature great food, networking, and amazing speakers, our December luncheon is something a little out of the ordinary!
We will still have great food and great networking - but, instead of an expert speaker, we will PLAY BINGO for $1,000 in CASH PRIZES!

Please Bring a Toy or Two and Spread Some Joy!

Help the YMCA make a child happy this Christmas! Bring an unwrapped toy or two to the luncheon and the YMCA will distribute them to those in need. They currently have more than 350 children in need.
Suggested items: 
Trucks, Barbies, Baby Dolls, Books, Stuffed Animals, Coloring Books, Colors, Crafts, Action Figures, Board Games, Playdough, Building Blocks, Legos... 
If you'd prefer to make a monetary donation directly to the YMCA, please use the link below and include that it is for the
"Angel Tree”.

• SME Members In-Person: Free

• Guests In-Person: $50

• Interested in membership: Join us at your first luncheon free - email Nancy Carter to make arrangements - [email protected]
