Non-profits on display at networking event

Marquette area non-profit organizations were on display Wednesday night at a ‘Business After Hours’ event at Northern Michigan University.

Two dozen non-profits had booths set up to network with each other and members of the community.  The Lake Superior Community Partnership co-sponsored the event.  They have ‘Business After Hours’ once a month, but this was the only event dedicated solely to non-profits. The events are free to attend, but a business must be a member of the LSCP to co-sponsor an event.

Betsy Babcock, Director of Marketing and Communications with the LSCP said having all the non-profits host together gives the business community to learn information about non-profits that they might not have known previously.

Food and drinks were also served at the event.
