MHNA Businesses Committee Launches Networking Event Series for Murray Hill Businesses

On December 8, business member, Hotel Chandler, hosted the Holiday Networking Event for Murray Hill businesses on behalf of the MHNA Business Committee. The event was free, and there was a capacity crowd of more than 25 neighborhood businesses. We are very grateful to Hotel Chandler for providing the lovely room, staff and continental breakfast, arranging for the presentation, and for the excellent suggestions and advice from Neda Heffron, Director of Sales and Marketing at the Hotel Chandler.

Colin Baer of Colin Baer Events & Floral put everyone in the holiday spirit with his presentation of holiday floral decorations, and the group left with many tips about how to buy flowers in the flower market on West 28th Street, how to extend the life of cut flowers and how to work with florists to get the freshest arrangements.

Many lucky businesses left with raffle prizes. We gratefully acknowledge the generous raffle donors—all of them are Murray Hill businesses—Fred Astaire Dance Studio Midtown, Hotel Chandler, Local Mobile Marketing Solutions, Park Avenue Liquors, Tournesol Wellness and Laura Fay Lewis.

The event was a good opportunity to meet neighborhood business owners and staff and to know them better.

This was the first in a series of MHNA business networking events. Carey Davidson, Chair of the Business Committee, is planning more events in the future, on a quarterly to semi-annual frequency. The events will be held in various locations and will have a speaker. Be sure that you are getting the MHNA emails if you want to be notified of future events. You can sign up on, scroll down the right column past the chrysanthemums.
