2019 Kick-Off Party Chili Showcase & Coat Drive

The Maryland Business Connection (MBX) started the new year with a little heat and hobnobbing at this annual event.

Folks had a chance to sample chili from local restaurants and caterers…
…while checking out dozens of booths from area businesses and networking with other professionals.
Attendees were also encouraged to bring “gently used” coats and other cold weather clothes to donate to the Anne Arundel County Food Bank and Resource Center.
