WHO WE ARE
Raise Your Glass Promotions is a boutique event management and production company that specializes in conceptualizing social networking and professional development event series. Our mission is to CONNECT people, DEVELOP partnerships and CELEBRATE the accomplishments of our successful executives, entrepreneurs and servant leaders. Our success relies upon the success of our partners.
Over the last seven years, we have built a brand that is focused on intentional networking that creates opportunities for collaboration, empowerment and community outreach. We strive to create impactful events that grow each year and include diversity celebrations. We have no desire to create cookie cutter, single use events. Our continued goal is to build a sustainable, profitable business model through strategic alignments that drive results for the company, as well as our sponsors, clients and partners.
As our vision states, we aim to CONNECT with more people, partners, organizations and groups, DEVELOP new strategic business relationships to strengthen community brands and CELEBRATE diversity and the accomplishments of our leading African American community, civic and government leaders, entrepreneurs and corporate executives.
Our marquee events are the UNITY Networking Mixer, which began in February of 2014, and our DECADES House Party, which began in December of 2013 and is a themed event for 30+ professionals to unwind; it’s “nostalgia for the old school urban music lover”. Additional events have included a monthly jazz series and cultural heritage musical celebrations (Black History Month, Caribbean American History Month and National Hispanic Heritage Month).
WHAT WE DO
We are a purpose driven business with a model that allows us to elevate our brand while simultaneously elevating others because we believe our success is directly tied to the success of our partners. Along with our event sponsors, we create a culture of collaboration and unity and promote synergy between non-profit professional associations, community organizations, civic organizations and small business owners.
