On Friday, November 9, Leadership Wilkes-Barre and the Alumni Council hosted their annual “Leadership on Tap” at the FM Kirby Center lobby in downtown Wilkes-Barre!
The event is a social mixer and a great networking opportunity which was open to the public. Tickets were $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Admission includes beer and wine tasting, and food courtesy of more than a dozen area restaurants. During the event they also had live music by Beth Connor of Perfect Harmony.
Sundance Vacations employees Amara D., Marlene C., Jenna K., and Karen M. also went to the event. When Marlene was asked about the event, she said, “I think it was a great event to mingle with other businesses, and learn about or sample what they had to offer. The thing that blew me away had to be the local vocalist, who was amazing!” she said with a smile.
