Chamber Hosts Rilling for Mayor Fundraiser

Chamber Hosts Rilling for Mayor Fundraiser

In the weeks leading up to Election Day, we showed our support for then candidate and now Mayor Harry Rilling, by partnering with his campaign committee on a lunch fundraiser and meet n’ greet with Chamber members, friends, and family. Thank you to Chamber member Capri’s Cuisine for catering, Board President Mariella Castagnet for hosting, and Hector Pachas for photography.

Why Rilling for Mayor?

Under Rilling’s three terms of leadership, Norwalk has moved into the future with a particularly robust Downtown economy, including the art, restaurant, and retail sectors; and Urban Core neighborhoods in the midst of transformative redevelopment initiatives. He has helped us welcome several new Latino and Hispanic-owned businesses, cutting the ribbon for Chamber members Rene Soto Gallery, Avenida Venezuelan Food, and La Calle Arepas Bar. Rilling has also received the endorsement of other business and labor groups including: Connecticut AFL-CIO Western Connecticut Area Labor Federation, United Food and Commercial Workers Union, Norwalk Police Union, and Norwalk Firefighters Union.

“Business After Hours” June

“Business After Hours” June

In June, the theme of our Business After Hours was LGBTQ Pride. The GNHCC is a community of LGBTQ and LGBTQ-friendly business owners and professionals. We were joined by special guest Stephanie Ramos, who shared about her business, Ramos Law, PC, an immigration law practice providing high quality, client- centered, immigration legal services globally. Stephanie focuses her practice on providing services tailored to the LGBT community. She is well versed in the particular challenges and opportunities of LGBT families navigating the immigration process.

Learn more about Ramos Law here.

If you didn’t make it this time, please join us for the next event on Thursday, July 18th, from 6-8pm.


About Business After Hours

GNHCC “Business After Hours” is your opportunity to meet Hispanic business owners and entrepreneurs, and others interested in reaching Hispanic and multicultural audiences, while unwinding after a long workday. By exchanging ideas and experiences, we can support each other in facing the challenges that are inherently part of paving our own way in business.

“Business After Hours” takes place at Saltwater Restaurant on the Third Thursday of every month. This is not a “members-only” event and there is no cost to attend. Complementary appetizers are served on a first come first serve basis, and then attendees are responsible for their own food and drink.

PS: If happy hour isn’t your thing, join us for  “Business Before Breakfast,” the networking event for early birds on Tuesday, July 2nd, from 7:30-9am.
