DETROIT, MI, Nov. 19, 2013 – The Detroit Press Club, Michigan’s fastest-growing media organization, welcomes members and guests to a holiday networking mixer on Thursday, Dec. 5, from 5:45 to 11 p.m. at the Anchor Bar Club Room, 450 W. Fort St., Detroit, MI, 48226, phone (313) 964-9127.
There is no admission charge and light appetizers will be served.
“Even though it’s designed as a holiday event, we’re still working the news angle and have invited Santa, the season’s top newsmaker, to stop by,” says former Detroit Press Club President Dave Smith.
Detroit Press Club President Steve Purdy adds, “What makes this a special arrival is that we’ll request a news conference when he gets here. Any journalist worth his or her salt would love to get Santa in front of the camera.”
The evening is an opportunity for members and those interested in membership to mingle with writers, bloggers, photographers, graphic artists and PR mavens.
“The Detroit Press Club has always offered a place for networking among journalists and those who work in related areas of the media,” notes Bob Giles, Detroit Press Club Vice President.
In keeping with the spirit of the season, those attending will have an opportunity to give back to the community by contributing a new un- read book to the Detroit Free Press Gift of Reading Program. Since 1987, it has put more than 675,000 books into the hands of Michigan children to help them discover the joy of reading.
