Black business owners and professionals have been invited from all over the state to congregate and conduct “Business on the Beach.’’
Darryl Barrs, a Daytona Beach resident and publisher of Program Success Magazine, a monthly business publication distributed statewide, has organized an event at the Plaza Ocean Club Hotel on Nov. 24 to give entrepreneurs and professionals an opportunity to create new business relationships and gain new clients and customers.
“Business on the Beach is an opportunity for business owners and individuals to come together from across the state to establish new contacts and friendships. It is also an opportunity to get some real grown folks entertainment in Daytona Beach. It’s a fact that if we can play together – we can work together,” said Barrs, a Daytona Beach resident and former employee of the Daytona Times.
‘Party with a purpose’
Barrs added, “In order for us to make it today, we need the best of our people giving their best. We need the best of our people as our leaders and the best of our people as our teachers. This is Program Success.’’
The Bethune-Cookman graduate says Program Success Magazine celebrates Blacks’ accomplishments in business, politics, religion and in society.
“Blacks on the Beach” will start with a mixer from 6 to 8 p.m. on Nov. 24 followed by what is being called a “party with a Purpose” from 8 p.m. to midnight.
The Special Formula Band, a 20-piece ensemble, will perform.
The cost is $20 in advance and $30 at the door. Hotel reservations can be made at a special Program Success rate of $79.
