The MPI Minnesota Chapter gathered on June 20 to celebrate the success of its past year at JX Event Venue in Stillwater. The event included a happy hour, Fun Pianos that serenaded guests, elevated food stations, trolley rides and a hidden speakeasy.

The International Live Events Association (ILEA) Dallas Chapter spread some holiday cheer at its annual Holiday Giveback. The organization chose to work with Senior Source and the Diversicare facility. Members of the group held a party for the facility complete with caroling, live music, holiday crafts and bingo—and of course plenty of cookies and punch. The group also collected items for Diversicare’s wish list, along with a $5 donation from each member who registered for the networking happy hour that followed the party.
