Toy Building networking event

I have just learnt of an exciting event that will take place tomorrow in Chicago: Corporate Event Interactive organizes annual Toy Building charitable event. You can come and network with Chicagoland professionals while building toys for less fortunate children. If you don't want to spend time on building a toy you can just bring one with you and devote your time meeting people.

As far as I understood the event is FREE but you should bring a toy.

WHEN: November 18, 2008, 5.30 - 8.00 pm
WHERE: 401 N. Michigan Avenue (beautiful location!)

There will be complimentary hors d'oeuvres and drinks.
