Thank you SO much to all of the attendees of LinkedCincinnatiLIVE! last night – you made it a fantastic event. People started rolling in around 15 minutes til 6 and we had a line waiting to register for nearly an hour! There were still people hanging around well after 9pm as well – the networking was that good! I saw lots of tweets following the event from people who really enjoyed themselves, and already people are asking when the next one will be. For the record, the person to ask that question of is Jennifer McClure, the lady without whom this event might never have happened, as she is the LinkedCincinnati group moderator. So – THANKS JENNIFER!

We have not tallied up the total number of attendees yet but I believe it was well over 200 people. The room we had reserved was fantastic – we had our auction tables lining the left side and a beautiful appetizer table in the middle of the room with a fountain! (I didn’t know we were going to have that!) Our cash bar was to the right of the entrance and the room was dotted with tall and short tables for mingling. Jennifer and I had many people come up to us over the course of the evening to compliment us on the event, the venue, and the cause for which we were raising money. When it was all said and done, we were able to raise just over $1000 for the trip to South Africa!

Which brings me to some exciting news: since not all of our auction items were bid on last night, we have the pleasure of opening up some fantastic opportunities to bid for those who could not attend, both local AND everywhere else! We are putting the remainder of our auction items on an online auction site. We are starting off with some time-sensitive items such as conference admission tickets, and will be added the others in the next week. Please visit the auction site here – all proceeds from these items will go to the South Africa trip fund-raising efforts.

Our first items up for bid (I feel like Bob Barker saying that!!) are three FANTASTIC recruiting event tickets: we have all-access passes for ERE’s Fall Expo in South Florida, RecruitFest! in Toronto, and SourceCon08 in Atlanta (which is NEXT WEEK so get it while it’s hot!)
