Sundowners are monthly networking mixers open to OBMA members and their employees. Hosting a Sundowner is a great way to show off your business and market and network with other local business owners! Sundowners are free to attend for all OBMA members.
Fourth Thursday of each month, 5:30pm-7:30pm
(There is no Sundowner in January or June. November and December Sundowners are often scheduled earlier to accommodate holidays; contact OBMA for details.)
The party details, including location, menu, and any activities or entertainment are completely up to the host or co-hosts. There is typically a raffle held just before 7pm with prizes provided by the hosts (any type of prize – host’s choice).
Any OBMA member in good standing is eligible to host or co-host a Sundowner.
