Money has been tight for everyone in 2011, so many companies have decided to forgo their holiday parties.
That's why Merritt Athletic Clubs is hosting "Baltimore's Biggest Holiday Office Party," a free event tonight from 7-11 p.m. at Merritt's downtown location. The club is inviting companies to bring their staff and friends to enjoy live music, food from top restaurants, gaming tables, a silent auction, free beer (yes, that's right), and a cash bar for other drinks.
The event's theme, "Spotlight on Baltimore," features a special VIP section and highlights from some of Baltimore’s favorite neighborhoods.
While the event is free, VIP tickets are available for $75 in advance or at the door. Proceeds from special VIP tickets, silent auction items, and gaming tables will benefit the GIVE (Getting Involved in Volunteers Experience) program from Business Volunteers Unlimited Maryland. The program helps to raise awareness among the next generation of civic leaders about the growing need for volunteerism.
