The Hoffman Estates Jaycees and The Chicago Entrepreneur Meetup Group have teamed up to host a Business Networking After Hours event on Thursday, January 24, 2013 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at Claim Jumper located at 2610 New Sutton Rd., Hoffman Estates, IL 60192. Proceeds from the event will be donated to Nothing But Nets.

Local businesses and young professionals in the area have been invited to this networking event where Hoffman Estates Mayor McLeod will be in attendance for a short announcement. Light appetizers will be provided and a cash bar is available.

Both the Jaycees and the Chicago Entrepreneur Meetup Group seek to empower young adults and local businesses through education, networking, and community service. A business after hours networking event will allow local Chicagoland businesses to meet and support each other while raising funds for a worthy cause. Chaffee-Thanh Nguyen, Organizer of the Chicago Entrepreneur Meetup Group and JCI Senator says, "Often times our local businesses are also our local civic leaders. It's important that local businesses meet and stay connected in order help both our businesses and our communities grow and prosper." A business after hours networking event is a simple and easy way to accomplish this.

Donations are being accepted for a raffle to be held at the event. Please see the hosts' websites for information about registering for the event or donating to the cause.

Nothing But Nets is a UN Foundation Organization that raises money to purchase insecticide treated bed nets which protects children while they sleep from getting bit by deadly malaria-carrying mosquitoes. They are distributed to families in Africa and Latin America. Every $10 donation goes towards purchasing a life saving net, distributing it, and educating communities on its use.

The Chicago Entrepreneur Meetup Group is "The ONE place (Tribe) for all Entrepreneurs to achieve business and personal success and to reach a higher level of prosperity, benefit society, and unlock our innate potential for goodness, compassion, and sharing."
