Report Event

Hello SoCal BPers! I'm hosting a networking mixer and fundraiser event in San Diego for Bigger Pockets members. I saw a similar event a few months ago (I think in the midwest somewhere) and thought it would be great to do here in San Diego. The goal is to bring together local BP members to connect and network as well support a local fundraiser, called Wheels for Gabby.

I encourage any San Diego Bigger Pockets member to come out, grab a drink, network and have a great time! This will be a casual mixer to help you meet other San Diego BP members and to cultivate professional lasting relationships. There will not be a schedule for the evening, as the flow will be an open cocktail mixer. Feel free to hand out business cards, talk deals, strategies or any REI topic. *All levels are welcome to join us. If you're a newbie, experienced or anywhere in between come on out and join us. This is open to all SoCal BP members! 100% of the donations will support the Wheels for Gabby fundraiser. Gabby lives in San Diego and is raising money to purchase a new accessible vehicle. Gabby is quad/paraplegic after being injured in a diving accident years ago while on the swim team in high school. She is currently studying to become a Rehabilitation Counselor and is very active in the community volunteering with numerous organizations. Gabby has been without transportation since her last vehicle stopped working over a year ago. Currently $4,000 has been raised, let's help Gabby get closer to reaching her goal of $30,000! Details for the event: Date: Wednesday, April 30th Time: 6:30pm-9pm Location: Sheraton Mission Valley, inside the Crew Bistro Bar. 1433 Camino Del Rio S, San Diego, 92108. Parking: Street or parking lot, parking will be validated. Food and beverage: Happy hour menu with food and drink will be offered all night. As a way to thank Sheraton for donating the space, a one drink minimum is strongly encouraged. RSVP: Please RSVP by Thursday, April 24th, either here on the forum or email me, [email protected]. Two great events in one!! Come on out and make some great connections and give to a good cause. I look forward to meeting my fellow San Diego and SoCal BP'ers :) Cheers! Jessica

Hi guys,

I apologize for the format of my initial post, apparently when I copy/pasted the text it didn't correctly go through. Below is the same text in the correct format:

Hi Jessica,

This event sounds great and I will be planning to attend with a co-worker of mine.

Thanks for the invite on the board!

Brian

Hi @Brian Daly ,

That's great you and your co-worker are able to attend! I look forward to meeting you.

See you in a few weeks!

Jessica

Hey Jessica,

This is a great idea. Bringing people together with the same interests and similar goals.

Jessica,

Thank you for putting this together. I will be attending. As a newbie still learning about what real estate investing strategy is the best fit for me, this will be an excellent opportunity to meet and network with others!

Hi @Jeffrey Rollon ,

It's great to see you here on BP! My hope is we get enough interest to make this a regular event. It would be great to switch up the venue and fundraiser each meeting.

I look forward to catching up soon, see you at SDCIA next week.

Jessica

Hi @Nathan Hearns ,

Glad you're able to make it, I look forward to meeting you! Have you attended any reia meetings? There are three that I know of in San Diego. I've found the meetings to be extremely helpful and a great networking source. I'll be at FIBI tonight and SDCIA next Tue.

Much success to you!

Jessica

Hello Jessica,

I am planning to attend.

Regards,

Levi

Count me in, I will plan on going.

Hi Jessica,

Jessica

Sounds like a great event. Wish I can join. I'm currently in Dallas :-(

@Sid Siddiqui , That's too bad you're not able to attend. Are you in SD often?

On anther note, you're in my favorite football city, Go Cowboys!

Jessica

Hi @Jessica Stevens Yes, I do travel a lot and been to SD couple of times now. One of my favorite place to visit especially the beaches and mission park :-).. I miss that in Dallas. - Go Cowboys!

Hi @Sid Siddiqui , that's great you've been able to visit a few times. It was also my favorite place to visit until I made it my home :) Now I'm looking forward to the day I'm able to visit your city and watch my Cowboys on hometown turf; next year is my goal!
