You already know it’ll be full of financial information, music, laughter, fun, and lots of high energy!
And, we’ve just confirmed that this event will be a fundraiser for the Comox Valley Farmers’ Market “Business Incubator Fund.” Net proceeds will go towards sustaining and growing the CVFM’s capacity to function as THE local food business incubator in our region.
Prime Chophouse has also generously made this one of their Community Throwback evenings. That means they’ve got a beer/wine and meal special, with $5 from each meal going to the Comox Valley Farmers’ Market.
Soft start at 6pm so you can order your Community Throwback dinner at Prime Chophouse .
Hard start at 6:30pm as we kick off the Financial Marketplace portion of the evening, followed by Kitty Pitt, DJ em.ash, and our signature LIFT fun and games!
