Financial Plus Credit Union to host annual Whatchamacallit networking event

FLINT — Financial Plus Credit Union and the Swartz Creek Area Chamber of Commerce will host their annual Whatchamacallit networking event from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. Friday, Dec. 6.

The event will be held at Financial Plus Credit Union’s main office located at G-3381 Van Slyke Road.

This holiday networking event gives local business professionals a chance to interact with hundreds of other businesses and community professionals, while benefiting two local charities.

Non-perishable food items will be accepted throughout the event for the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan and 100 percent of funds raised will go directly to Old Newsboys of Flint.

“For some, the holiday season can leave a financial stress and burden on families,” said Olga Long, vice president of Strategic Growth and Marketing. “We invite local business professionals to help make the holidays more memorable for those who need it the most by attending our annual Whatchamacallit event. The donations we receive will help children in Genesee County have a Christmas, and will provide food for families.”

Prize drawings, a breakfast buffet, a photo booth from Freeze Frame Photo Lounge, and an appearance from Santa himself will bring out the holiday spirit in each attendee.

Radio stations will be broadcasting all morning from Financial Plus including: Cars 108, 103.9 the Fox, 102.5 WIOG, and Banana 101.5.
