This recession makes people re-evaluate their lives, and what they need to do to make the right changes in their professional life. What better way to get connected with others in the same position, and who may also be looking for love too.
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) September 18, 2009
Jenna Communications & Ortaneek announced today that the Laid Off Looking for Love tour kicks off in Philadelphia on September 24, 2009. This event is the first of dozens of monthly events taking place in the tri-state area (NYC, Philadelphia, & Wilmington) at Public House USA, a premier restaurant and bar chain in all three cities.
Join us as several sexy singles including some local celebrities will be auctioned off, as ACTION NEWS Channel 6 ABC's meteorologist ERICA GROW emcees the event. Laid off or not, you don't want to miss a chance to win a date with some of Philly's finest singles!
Also participating in the event is Philly2Philly.com, Philadelphia's newest online destination for the everyday people of Philadelphia. Philly2Philly will be promoting Project Dig- a page on their Politics/Community page where readers adopt a worker who has suffered a job loss. The worker can have their profile posted on the page along with their resume for free! It's just one of the many features of Philly2Philly.com- Everyday Philly for Everyday People.
There will be OPEN BAR, APPETIZERS, NETWORKING & DANCING from 6-8, with the date auction starting promptly at 8pm! Tickets are thirty dollars at the door or buy your ticket here: http://tinyurl.com/m349lg.
Jennifer Sherlock and Nicola Wedderburn came up with the idea after being laid off from their full-time job at Advanta Bank Corp. Both ladies are entrepreneurs at heart, and after losing their jobs, they decided to pursue their passion of doing PR & special events.
Sherlock is a former TV reporter turned PR star, and Wedderburn is a former wedding planner & business to business salesperson.
"Everyone at one time or another will be laid off or will have to rise above some downfall in the workplace, and this event gives singles the chance to not only find love, but jobs in this time of need," says Sherlock.
Wedderburn thinks the event will change people's outlook on being laid off. "This recession makes people re-evaluate their lives, and what they need to do to make the right changes in their professional life. What better way to get connected with others in the same position, and who may also be looking for love too."
Both Sherlock & Wedderburn are single and will also be auctioned off at the event. A portion of the evening's proceeds will be donated to the SHARE Food Program to help those in need.
