Did you attend our Winter Holiday Mixer?

We at the Mar Vista Chamber of Commerce think we know how to throw a party, and our end-of-year gathering was no exception! We went to our local fave restaurant, Casa Sanchez in Mar Vista, to see our friends, catch up and enjoy fine Mexican appetizers and drinks!

Fabulous drinks and delicious food

Casa Sanchez offered a number of delicious dishes, including their excellent enchiladas, creamy queso sausage dip, and tons of fresh tortillas and salsa, plus some pretty strong margaritas and mojitos! We shared appetizers among our tables so we could share, and the bar ensured that drinks were available all evening. The mixer spot was their large covered outdoor patio, which was warm and bright for the occasion. A full mariachi band played just inside the doors to the dining room.

Some of us came home winners!

Our dear friend and founding member Donna Benton won a $50 gift card from in our membership renewal raffle; other members, including board members Eric Oxenberg and Allison Beale, received $10 Starbucks cards. Several members, including Craig Jaffe of Jaffe Insurance and Manuél Jimenez of EZep Financial Services, brought family members to meet us.

Thank you all for coming; it was wonderful to see so many familiar faces and the event brought much good cheer for the holidays!
