About this Event

Kick off the Thanksgiving season with a DINNER and panel discussion by DYNAMIC, LIFE-CHANGING, VISIONARY Leaders who inspire us by sharing the joy of giving to others. They'll also share "lessons learned" and secrets of success that others can use -- and reflect on partnerships and strategic alliances. Seating is LIMITED. Sign up now to ensure your place at the table at Comal Heritage Food Incubator in the very hip River North Arts District (RiNo). Panel members are:

Mark Newhouse's career has focused on innovation resulting in more than 2.0 billion dollars in product sales revenue. Currently, his is a partner in the Innosphere Fund, a seed venture capital fund that focuses on investing in early exit technology startup companies. He is also developing a new approach to investing and philanthropy in Social Enterprises.

Slavica Park: Director, Education and Economic Opportunity at Focus Points Family Resource Center. Slavica's work group spawned Comal Heritage Food Incubator (http://www.focuspoints.org/comal/) -- a lunch restaurant whose primary function is to provide training in culinary arts and business to immigrants and refugees as a platform for economic development. Some of Comal’s students and graduates will cook dinner for us at "their place" – and join in the feast as they highlight how this program has improved the quality of life for them --selves and their families.

David Hauser is Director of Development At-The-Epicenter (https://attheepicenter.com/): REGENERATION + INNOVATION + IMPACT. Their mission is to support the momentum of business to collaborate across sectors to address pressing challenges facing humanity.

Jeremy Priest, President of Knotty Tie Company (https://www.knottytie.com/) will also share his story about using recycled plastics to make an eco-friendly textile products -- while hiring skilled refugees.

The panel will be moderated by CCDC’s president, Dr. Paula Gable. She’s confident the speakers will inspire you with their success stories and help you decide how you might apply your skills and passion to improve your own little corner of the world.

Since Thanksgiving is around the corner, we invite you to bring a non-perishable food item for a Thanksgiving Food Drive. We’ll put it in the cornucopia as an expression of our gratitude and willingness to share our abundance with others.
