In April, Fastlane in the Community, focused mainly on community service, and took place at Kultura near King St. and Jarvis St. With over 120 guests, there were many opportunities for guests to meet and converse with interesting people in a relaxing environment.
Young professionals between the ages of 25 and 40 have moved into the FastLane and joined together for an unforgettable networking experience.
Attendees were professionals in Non Profit, Hospitality, Health Care, Arts and Entertainment, and other professional services. They were there because they had the drive to make use of the valuable networking opportunities available that night.
This FastLane networking event partnered with United Way Toronto’s GenNext. An organization that encourages people in their 20’s and 30’s to make a difference and to get involved in their community. GenNext was there encouraging attendees to get involved in their Give a Damn program. They want people to take pride in their city, support United Way, and volunteer within their neighbourhood.
Everyone was encouraged to join in the fast-paced three minute speed networking portion of the event. They had the opportunity to meet other professionals and make business contacts in a short time.
Special guests who came out for the night included musicians represented by Red Room Records, who put on a live show, as well as HiTechTattoos, a unique customization company, who was able to engrave images and words onto guests cell phones and mp3 players.
FastLane’s networking events encourage people to get involved and experience how FastLane can open doors for individuals’ businesses and their community endeavours. Once a month, come out and enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, presented by CityEvents and Gatherings Event Planning & Fundraising.
Our next event, “FastLane Wine in the City”, is on May 26th and will be held in Yorkville, at Blu Ristorante & Lounge.
