Members of the Business Opportunity Network (BON) enjoyed cocktails, great food and excellent company as they celebrated its 15th year with a party set on the patio of The Prime Rib at Maryland Live!
More than just a business networking group, BON is an invitation-only group of area business owners and seasoned professional leaders who interact and exchange ideas, develop professional relationships, create opportunities and improve their communities.
Folks had a chance to mingle and look back on the past year’s accomplishments…
…as well as browsing a sumptuous buffet and carving stations.
One highlight of the evening came when we thanked Jim Reis for his two years as BON president.
