Celebration of German Mixer's One Year Anniversary
More than 100 German Mixers, regulars and newcomers, celebrated the one year anniversary of the German Mixer on July 7, 2004 at the Chanteclair Restaurant in Irvine.

During this last year, the German Mixer has become the “in” place for Germans, Austrians, Swiss, and their friends to meet in Orange County. On the first Wednesday of every month, more than 50 people regularly join the Mixer for private and professional networking.

The recent celebration party featured a complimentary happy hour buffet and the usual networking was refreshed by Schlager as well as Neue Deutsche Welle music. The recent formation of German American Business Association (GABA) Southern California introduced itself at the event to the German-American business community.
Highlight of the celebration was a raffle drawing. Prizes such as a bike, various gift certificates, fruit and gourmet baskets, cosmetics, CDs, and more found their lucky winners. Overall, the event was a great success and feedback showed that the German speaking community very much appreciates the monthly networking opportunities.

German Mixer would like to thank the following sponsors for supporting the anniversary and turning it into a memorable event: Web Bicycle; The St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort & Spa, Law Offices of Suzanne G. Brummett, Hurley International, Good Mood Food, Gunda Jahromi with Morgan Stanley, Janssen Beauty USA, Talking Hands Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, FlyPR, and rapidearmusic studio cologne. Many thanks go also to the volunteers Carol Horn, Nayiry Manouchakian and others for their support to organize and run the event.

Please spread the word! The German Mixer is not funded, nor do we spend money on advertisement. We also do not take admission at the usual networking events and would like to keep it this way. The event is organized by volunteers. Get in touch with us, if you are interested in volunteering or in becoming a co-host of a German Mixer event.

I am looking forward to the next exciting year of bringing together the German speaking community in Orange County. I am happy and even more encouraged when I realize how private friendships and business relationships begin and develop through our events.

Ich wünsche Euch weiterhin viel Spass beim mixen und mingeln!

Claudia Knecht
Founder and Host of German Mixer
