March Madness - Let's Talk Sports!

 

What about a night just for fun and networking. Tequila, Vodka, Basketball broken Down. On the serious side, while this is a fun networking event, women are frequently left out of the sports conversations at work, as are men who didn’t grow up in a sports household. We’ll de-mystify the Madness Month with Basketball aficionados providing information on how to participate in the conversations throughout the evening. Aided and Abetted by Vodka and Tequila, and light bites, we’ll break through the inhibitions of people who are not conversant with the March Madness lingo. Participants will be invited to complete a FWA Men’s Alliance bracket and practice betting for the opportunity to win fun prizes.

We’ll have one final fun round at the end of the night, with prizes for winners and losers!

We’ll have:

  • Tutorials by those who grew up loving Basketball, including friends from Write on Sports
    www.writeonsports.org, which teaches students to write through their love of sports
  • Tutorials by those who didn’t grow up with Basketball, just to prove “it’s never too late”
  • Patron Ultimate Vodka and Patron Tequila, Beer and Soft Drinks
  • Food and Desserts catered by J2Food
  • Final Betting Round with Fun Prizes

If you missed the Men’s Alliance opening event “Single Malt Chocolate” a few years ago, or if you came and loved it, you know WE LOVE TO PARTY! And we have serious events as well, such as our most recent successful event on Sexual Harassment.

MEN AND WOMEN ALL INVITED FOR FUN, SPORTS, DRINKS AND FOOD!

WHAT BETTER WAY FOR MEN AND WOMEN TO UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER THAN FOR ALL OF US TO SHARE THE LOVE OF SPORTS

IT IS EASY TO JOIN THE FWA- JUST COME TO THE EVENT AND FIND OUT
