FERNDALE – The after-work networking group “Ties Like Me” will celebrate their one-year anniversary at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 18 at Via Nove in Ferndale.
Founders Reid Beyerlein and Robert Lalicki are proud of the organizations accomplishments so far.
“We have heard many, many successes and testimonials from people who have come to Ties on how it has increased their network of contacts and how they can now grow,” Beyerlein said.
Appetizers and a cash bar will be on hand, and Lalicki urges those who haven’t joined yet to come forward. “They can’t miss this event,” he said. “People who have come once or twice continue to come back.”
Through support from the LGBT community, “Ties Like Me” has brought together community members through networking events. “It opens people up to meet people from the GLBT community that now they can do business with,” Beyerlein said. “It truly is a unique setting.”
