StayWorkPlay 9th Annual Rising Star Awards – Celebrate New Hampshire’s Remarkable Young People!

Once again StayWorkPlay NH reminds us to have a little fun at an event that honors tomorrow’s New Hampshire business leaders.

In addition to live music from Derek Russell Fimbel, and access to the incredible works of art in the gallery at the Currier Museum of Art, audience members can enjoy a cash bar and play games while they meet nominees and participate in an “interactive live audience poll to select this year’s People’s Choice award winner.”

This year’s event will be held on Thursday, October 11 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Currier Museum of Art.

Tickets are $30 and can be purchased on the event page.

NOTE: This week’s events calendar was a little light so I’ve included two events in Concord.

And since networking happens anytime you meet people, I’m going to start including a couple social events each week.  This week’s non-business activity is the Cider Doughnut Relay Challenge from Runner’s Alley on Saturday, October 13.  A team activity with running, body weight exercise and doughnuts – how could that not be fun?

Reminder: Check out the webinars at the bottom of the page.
