HAPPY FRIDAY!

I can’t believe January is almost gone… Do you have anything to show for?

If you don’t, you might want to get your agendas out and take note. After you recover from the Super Bowl (guys from your hangovers and ladies from picking up our mess), get ready to mark your calendars. The Auxiliary Board of the American Red Cross of Greater Chicago hosts a series of social mixers, held quarterly, at some of Chicago’s hottest venues with some of Chicago’s sassiest young professionals.

Raising much-needed funds, Flirting for Disaster supports the work of your local Red Cross as we respond to disasters in Chicagoland every day. But don’t think you’ll need to shell out major cash. Attending these events will cost you no more than an average night on the town – actually, less. Since everything is donated – the booze, food and venue – all the proceeds go to our Chapter.

See below for some of our upcoming events, and please join us and this way, you can talk about some of the stuff you did over the weekend (at least the part about going to a Red Cross mixer), whatever happens after that, you can keep to yourself. Also, purchase Mission Red tickets at a 50% discount at these events (ask Auxiliary Board members).

As part 4 of our 25 part introduction of our Auxiliary Board, I present our fourth profile: the lovely Angela So – my WPP colleague, and Member of the Auxiliary Board.

Angela So: Angela loves telling people she’s from the Greatest City in the World (yes, Chicago). She is the Central Regional Manager for OgilvyAction, founding member of OA’s Leadership Committee and recently graduated with an M.S. in Integrated Marketing Communications from Loyola University Chicago. Angela also teaches Cycling for Equinox. One of her goals is to reach 500 contacts on LinkedIn (she’s halfway there…). Connect with Angela here.

So long for now, and join us again next Friday for our next edition of HAPPY FRIDAY!
