GSBA cruise mixer a seaworthy success

by James Whitely - SGN Staff Writer

GSBA Prime Time Mixer
April 21
Pier 55


On Wednesday, April 21, about 200 members of the GSBA gathered down by the waterfront to sail the Sound for the GSBA Prime Time Mixer. The purpose of the mixer was to welcome this year's new members of the GSBA.

"It could not have been a better evening," said April Thanos, program director for the GSBA.

Attendees were give custom bingo cards with GSBA member's names on them instead of numbers. To win, one had to mill around the boat to find each person on their card and complete it. Before one could get anyone to sign off on their card, one had to ask them about their business, how long they've been in the GSBA, etc.

Various members of the GSBA board spoke during the cruise, and prizes were given out to bingo winners. Music was provided by DJ DaMarr Easton and Wave Link Music, this year's GSBA Business of the Year.

Donors for the bingo prizes included 5th Avenue Theatre, the Seattle Men's Chorus, Barrio, Argosy Cruises, and many more.

This year, 210 new members joined the GSBA. The GSBA will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of its scholarship fund on May 21 with a celebratory dinner at the Hyatt in downtown Seattle. Visit www.thegsba.org to register.

The GSBA envisions a vibrant global economy strengthened through the full participation of diverse local communities and strives to combine business development, leadership, and social action to expand economic opportunities for the LGBT community and those who support equality for all.
