The holiday event of the season is surely Engage! Cleveland’s 6th Annual Holiday MIX which will take place on Tuesday, December 15th from 5:30 – 8:30 pm at one of the newest spaces in University Circle, The Corner Alley Uptown. Many of our city’s young professionalsare expected to celebrate the holidays together with food, drinks, and cheer at this event. Holiday MIX will also feature complimentary appetizers, bowling and shoe rental as well as a cash bar at Uptown. The entire second level of the establishment is ours for the night We are going to offer you some tips to make the most of your night.

Tip #1 Network, network, network

The Holiday MIX is a great event to network with other Cleveland young professionals. The atmosphere is relaxed, light, and jolly. It’s easy to talk to one another and everyone is ultimately there to network with you. Don’t be afraid to strike up a conversation with someone who seems interesting. We all have a story to tell and love a listening ear, especially around the holidays. This event is the perfect opportunity to challenge a fellow YP to an arcade game or bowl in a mixed group of strangers (soon to be friends). Check out and compliment someone’s holiday attire or talk over drinks. However you want to do it, put yourself out there and network.

Tip #2 Have Awesome Attire

Be sure to dress the part for the evening. There will be a contest throughout the night for the best-dressed Cavs fan (game will be playing), bowling pro, and master of Holiday cheer in each category. Don some reindeer antlers or your Cavaliers jersey. Wear whatever you feel comfortable in, but I bet that the most outrageous outfits will win these contests.

Tip #3 Silent Auction Bonanza

Engage! Cleveland will also have a table filled with auction items for you to bid on. Items include everything from Browns versus Steelers tickets to exclusivestyle party at White House Black Market. Each item will have a starting bid price and go up from there. Keep bidding and take home your prize (s). All of the proceeds will go towards funding future events for Cleveland young professionals.
