Celebrate Fairfax Young Professionals Mixer, a partnership between Celebrate Fairfax and OP3, offers a unique way to meet other young people with similar philanthropic interests. More than 10 local Chambers of Commerce and Civic groups will join together for a pre-concert meet-up where corporate social responsibility and civic opportunities will be discussed in an informal happy hour atmosphere. According to "Personnel Today", more than one-third of respondents to a recent survey conducted by said that working for a caring and responsible employer was more important than the salary they earned. Mixers like this offer shared value as the professionals can network, as well as share valuable opportunities with each other.
Tickets are $25 and are available through local chambers of commerce. Following the mixer (5-7p on June 8) participants will have the opportunity to hear the sounds of "Flavor Flav and the Legends of Hip Hop" on the center stage. For more information contact OP3
Mike Cantrell's grandmother, Gay Bowers, held a Christmas Party each year to benefit kids in need. Mike continued this tradition, but increased it to a scale that benefits hundreds of at risk youths and families each year. For more than 15 years Mike Cantrell, who is a criminal defense lawyer in Fairfax, holds a party for his family, friends and business associates where the ticket to get in is a new unwrapped toy. Prior to the party he visits local businesses to request donations of gifts/money. It's not unusual for 75 to 100 brand new bicycles to be displayed in the front of the party site. Mike gives the gifts to the Police Department and then takes the monetary contributions to the Friends of the Juvenile Court. For this unselfish, continued act of kindness, Mike was honored as OP3's Finalist for Small Business Champion. Mike says youth have a special place in his heart and he specializes in thier type issues. To contact Mike call 703.691.2470.
