1. New this year: 31 Local Vendors!
Perhaps the most exciting thing about this years event is that for the first time our birthday party will feature local businesses and non-profits that make Syracuse great. Some of them are food or beer businesses that will give out free food, beer and Ice Cream. Some food vendors will sell food as well. Not only that, non-profits like the Downtown Committee, Visit Syracuse, Leadership Greater Syracuse, the Center for Court Innovation and others will be there to show off what they do and what makes Syracuse great. There will even be an insurance company, an apartment building and a health and wellness center represented as well.
2. Live Entertainment!
We're so excited to announce that the Spring Street Family Band will be performing at the 3rd Birthday Party! Not only that but magician Louis Hanlon will be working the crowd, performing magic tricks. Also Dominique's Dance Creations will be dancing at the event. This event will even have a Signature Drink Contest! I can't wait to see what creative drinks our members and followers come up with!
3. Fun things to do & prizes to win
This event a great networking opportunity as we are projecting about 350 people will attend. However, if networking is not your thing, for the 2nd consecutive year, Jim Flint will be playing the part of Alex Trebek and Syracuse Jeopardy! If your contestant is victorious you'll win a prize. There'll also be a 50 50 raffle going on. There will also be a photobooth provided by Elegant Memories Photography which is always fun at parties like this one.
4. The Birthday Party is not just about Believe in Syracuse
You may already know that at the event, we'll present the 2nd Annual Believe in Syracuse awards to Chris Fowler of Syracuse First, as well as The Samaritan Center. What you may not know is that we'll also be celebrating the community asset that is the Landmark Theatre. The Landmark has been the crown jewel of Downtown Syracuse since it opened in 1928. It's one of the most beautiful theaters in Upstate New York.
