The event is a cooperative effort among several chambers of commerce, networking groups, business-related nonprofits and Tucson businesses to create an evening of quality connections, networking and generation of new business.

"This is not a typical mixer", says Bill Nordbrock, co-founder of Referral Tree. "Extensive efforts have gone into making sure the right connections are made with the right people for all those who attend. We expect between 300 and 500 business owners/service providers to attend and do not want them to walk away empty-handed."

The cost is $17, which includes appetizers and beverages, as well as music provided by the Tucson Jazz Society.
