Take 5: A Virtual Mixer

Wichita Professional Communicators

Wichita Professional Communicators is taking its popular annual in-person mixer into the virtual realm!
Join us on Zoom for this virtual take on our event, which is themed Take 5. We’ve planned a night that features some hallmarks of our traditional mixer: a little food, wine, music, mixing and money for our scholarship fund!
It happens at 5:30 p.m. 10.05.2020 and will feature:
* 5 Cool Wines for Fall presented by Guy Bower, host of KNSS’ The Good LIfe who has become a fixture at our mixers when it comes to making sure we enjoy some wine.
* 5 Minutes of Music by Joe Stumpe. Joe, editor of the active age, will make a repeat musical appearance.
*5 Techie Tips presented by Dawn Monroe of Dawn Monroe Training. She’s a wiz at LinkedIn, Zoom, co-working with different platforms and more.
* 5 Breakout Rooms for getting to know your fellow Zoomers.
* 5 (or more) changes to win amazing door prizes. Of course, there would be prizes. When you donate the $5 suggested donation to attend the mixer, you’ll be entered into the drawing. Increase your chances by donating more! Every $5 donation will secure you an extra virtual ticket for the drawings. Prizes already secured include gift certificates to Lucinda’s and Vortex Souvenir. Proceeds from the donations benefit our scholarship fund.
Plus there’s more!
To help raise funds for our annual WPC scholarship and to help you enjoy some food, you have the opportunity to purchase a cheese plate featuring 5 cheeses, nuts and crackers to pair with suggested wine for the evening. Cost for the cheese plate only is $10. Pre-orders will be taken with a central pickup spot the day of the mixer. Look for more details. Proceeds from the cheese plate purchases will benefit the scholarship fund.
Stay tuned for registration and other event details!
Each year, WPC provides a scholarship of up to $2,000 to a student studying in a communications-related field at a Wichita-area university/college. Your participation in this event will help us continue that philanthropy.
