Raleigh, NC (November 21, 2011) – The date is quickly approaching to celebrate the holidays with the leading marketing, advertising and communications trade associations in the Triangle! Join the AAF, AIGA, TIMA and Triangle AMA for a networking and fundraising holiday party. The festivities will take place at Spy Raleigh in Downtown Raleigh, N.C., on Tuesday, December 6th from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm.

Serving not just as a networking opportunity for all marketing, advertising, communications and PR professionals across the market, this popular holiday event will also directly benefit the Triangle Spokes Group, a locally based non-profit organization. Throughout the year, the Triangle Spokes Group raises money to buy new bicycles for need-worthy children throughout the area, and then delivers them just in time for the holidays.

“Triangle Spokes Group is so thankful and excited to be part of this year’s Merry Mingle”, said co-founder, Jenn Nowalk. “We would not be able to deliver bikes to less fortunate kids each year without the support of the Triangle, so this is a great opportunity to expand our reach, partner with some innovative organizations and raise money to help us reach our goal—our biggest goal yet—of 500 bikes this holiday season!”

Tickets to the event are $10 for members of the hosting organizations, $15 for nonmembers and $25 for everyone at the door. All proceeds will go directly to the Triangle Spokes Group. For more information or to RSVP to this fundraising event, please visit www.merrymingle.org

A special thank you to our sponsors DocuSource, Spy Raleigh, The Oxford, Brand Fuel, Sparktivity, Magnet Video and Fragment for helping make this event possible.
