Thursday, May 26th the Riverside Chapter successfully completed its second Desert Event of 2016! Bellatrix Classic Club, located just off the I-10 in the Coachella Valley, generously hosted the BIA’s Annual Fiesta del Sol. With over 90 in attendance, members and guests had the opportunity to socialize and interact with others in the industry in the Coachella Valley. Many elected officials made appearances, including our Deputy CEO of Riverside County, Brian Nestande. Several city officials from the Coachella Valley were in attendance, along with a handful of other city representatives from Riverside County. We had 4 Riverside Chapter BIA Board of Directors present, as well as the entire Riverside County Chapter team.
We raffled off a cruise to Mexico, cash prize, and a box of premium hand-rolled Cuban cigars which were personally cut and lit by our cigar concierge. Attendees ate delicious hors d'oeuvres, enjoyed their drinks, and mingled with fellow members, industry leaders, and city officials. The evening went smoothly, and attracted a substantial crowd. The relaxed atmosphere provided for quality networking without excessive formality getting in the way. We look forward to seeing you back with us next year!
Thank you to all of the attendees and event sponsors as we had a successful Fiesta del Sol!
