The East Naples Merchants Association (ENMA) gathered at BurgerFi on Thursday, July 13 for its first “Burgers and Beer” Business After Business networking event. What’s better than ending a busy week with a gourmet burger and an ice-cold beer?
Members had the opportunity to chow down on a delicious burger of their choice with a side of “cry or fry”(onion rings or french fries), beer and wine and the opportunity to sample free custard after checking in the location on Facebook.
For most guests, this was their first time eating at the establishment. BurgerFi is a stylish, eco-minded chain that originated in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Having been in business for six years since 2011, the chain has nowgrown to nearly 100 locations across the U.S. and abroad.
ENMA had its first 50/50 raffle to win a cash prize or a $25 gift card to BurgerFi. In total, $130 was collected in the raffle. From the cash donations collected, the proceeds will fund ENMA’s charitable giving projects within the east Naples community. One of the main goals isto provide a big surprise for the children at Manatee Elementary School during the December holidays.
BurgerFi is best known for its passion for food and service. The nearest restaurant is located at 12712 Tamiami Trail E, Naples.
The upcoming ENMA reception will be held at the Springhill Suites Hotel on Thursday, July 27, from 5-7 PM. For more information on upcoming ENMA events, contact Liz Sanders
