Home Newsroom 55. Get Social with Barrington Businesswomen

With Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and so many other popular networks, it has become WAY too easy to spend more time socializing online than in person, hasn’t it?  I know.  As a serial online networker, sadly, I speak from experience.  But a group of Barrington businesswomen has come up with a fun way to get us all out from behind our laptops.  They’re hosting a big party tomorrow night and rolling out the welcome mat for women right here in Barrington.

The group behind the party is called Barrington Women’s Biz Net, they’re part of the Barrington Area Chamber of Commerce and they’re all about giving women who own and work for businesses in Barrington a chance to meet, mingle and make new friends.  The theme of their networking event tomorrow night is Come Sail Away, it’s FREE and it’ll definitely feel more like a party with opportunities to make great connections in person.

G Whiz at the Foundry of Barrington is hosting tomorrow night’s party. They’re known for “Gifts that Get Noticed” and tomorrow night, the shop will be set up to entertain. Dozens of local business owners will have their products and services on display, there will be live music from Lola Bard Productions along with drinks and hors d’oeuvres offered by Port Barrington catering company, Cucina Pazza. The party starts at 4:30 and lasts until 7 p.m and the details are being coordinated by Barrington social party planner, Christina Currie.

You’ll find G Whiz at 724 W. Northwest Highway at the Foundry.  If you can’t make tomorrow’s party, you’re welcome to attend any of the Women’s Biz Net group’s monthly luncheons.

Barrington Women's Networking Event

They get together from 11:30 to 1:30 on the last Thursday of each month.  And next month they’re hosting their most popular event of the year, which is a networking “scramble” including five separate area Chambers of Commerce at The Onion Pub in Lake Barrington on September 29th.  If you’re a businesswomen, this group is a great way to connect with great people, OFFLINE and right here in Barrington.  For more information about the group, call the Barrington Area Chamber of Commerce at 847-381-2525 or send a message to

Today, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday and the start of our WORDS MATTER campaign for No Name-Calling Week, bring your family together to talk about the incredible power of words. Words can harm, they can heal, they can inspire and they can change the world. Dr. King is considered by many to be one of the greatest speakers of all time, using his words, his passion, and his conviction to lead one of the most important movements in our nation's history. For today's family activity, talk about some of Dr. King's most famous quotes.

Here are few links to help:

Talk about the quotes that have meaning for you and the power that Dr. King's words have had to change the world.
