Recap: The 3/50 Project
Merchants and members of local Chambers of Commerce and Business Improvement Districts converged on St.Francis College last night to hear Cinda Baxter, founder of The 3/50 Project, talk about the importance of America's brick & mortar small businesses and give some tips on how to navigate these challenging times in a positive way.
It looked like many members of Brooklyn's small business community walked away feeling excited about making The 3/50 Project part of their local efforts. Watch for the campaign's logo along a business district near you!
A big thanks to the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, the Park Slope Fifth Avenue BID, the Park Slope Chamber of Commerce and Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz's Shop Brooklyn for bringing such a great program to the borough!
We managed to capture a few photos in the auditorium's low-light atmosphere without distracting the speakers with our flash. There are a few successful shots on our Flickr page.
Oh, and please, support your local stores, bars and restaurants!
