Power of the Purse

The Rainbows Organization held their 3rd Annual Fundraiser on May 1, 2011 at the Ridgemoor Country Club in Harwood Heights. The Power of the Purse.. It’s All About Me! program consisted of a beautiful buffet lunch, a fashion show and specialty vendor tables. It was a great turnout with nearly 300 people attending.

Scrapping on the Spot was invited to participate as a vendor and had a variety of hand-crafted items available for viewing and purchase. Our Mother’s Day brag books and mini brag books seemed to be the most popular gift item and several custom orders were placed for customized items to be made. Our feature attraction were our Event Scrapbooks — leaving your special occasion with a completed scrapbook is a great way to have an instant keepsake with all of your memories captured in one place.

McHenry Chamber Scramble November 2010

If someone were to tell you they went to a “Scramble,” what would you think it was?  A new breakfast cafe?  A rummage sale where you had to madly reach for something before someone else did?  A corn maze where you had to frantically find your way through people and corn stalks?

The Scramble we attended on Friday, Nov. 5th, is a networking luncheon event that the McHenry County Chamber of Commerce holds twice a year.  You find yourself meeting and networking with people at every turn and you scramble from one table to another throughout this progressive lunch.  While at each table, you have only but a few minutes to tell everyone you’re seated with who you are and what benefits your company offers to them.  It’s a fantastic way to meet people and find out more about the businesses within your own community.
