They will also collect supplies from attendees at their Business 2 Business Meet and Greet at Mindful Storage on July 24th. There is no charge to attend this networking event, so the PAC board of directors is asking attendees to bring a school supply donation. School supplies collected by PAC will stay with students and schools in the Poinciana area.
The Celebration Area Council will also be collecting supplies at their Business Spotlight on August 6th at 215 Celebration Place. This event brings local business people together will local businesses. Attendees at the first event in this new series will see inside the offices of Osceola County’s destination marketing organization, Experience Kissimmee, to learn about their role in our county, hear what is new with Old Town, find out about exciting new developments at AdventHealth Celebration, and understand SeaWorld’s new survey solutions with Avius. This event is also cost-free, so school supply donations for Celebration’s schools will take the place of an event fee.
