In Ionia, Michigan, there is a group of woman who get together to eat a meal and share their elevator pitch with like-minded women. They are the Girls’ Lunch.
According to event organizer, Debbie Seese, the idea stemmed from the Girlsâ€™ Lunch events in Grand Rapids.
She said participants meet for lunch and some attendees give a â€œ30-second commercialâ€ about their business or non-profit and also give door prizes through random selection.
â€œItâ€™s mainly for businesses and non-profits who need another outlet for promotion,â€ said Seese.
Goodie bags with business promotional materials are also part of the event. All attendees place something small and of value attached to a business card or other forms of literature from the business.
Seese said the group of attendees is small, and more women are always welcome.
â€œItâ€™s just fun to see and hear about what other women are doing,â€ Seese added.
