The South End Business
Alliance's vision for fall of 2011 is to host a premier event, or series of
events, to dramatically raise the profile of our community to the outside world,
highlight our businesses and non-profits, while raising funds for SEBA's work.Our long-term plan would allow us to
replicate this event year after year.
The yet-to-be defined event
or series of events would showcase the rich diversity of talent and creativity,
both in business and the arts, and could encompass technology, food and wine,
theater, dance, music and art, fashion and design, as well as a venue for
presenting to the community and beyond the good work that goes on with
non-profits and community organizations.
In order to help execute this
vision, SEBA will outreach to its members, local business owners, non-profits
and neighborhood associations who are inspired and engaged in the community and
who mutually understand the importance of working together to support, help
shape and ultimately realize this vision.
The specific goals of having
such an event are to raise the profile and increase collaboration and
involvement in our community, to bring in new business for the various
commercial entities participating, to raise $10,000 for SEBA, to help support
our non-profit organizations and to increase awareness across the city and in
the region of the great wealth of resources, options and opportunities that are
generated by our unique community.
