UT event to raise funds to help small businesses

The University of Toledo Minority Business Development Center will hold “An Evening of Chance” fundraiser from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Oct.12 at Parkway Plaza in Maumee.

This annual event celebrates, honors and promotes minority business enterprises in the community while raising money through an elegant evening of games, music, food and fun.

The money raised at this event will supplement the cost of professional services for members of the UT Minority Business Development Center and support experiential learning opportunities for interns and graduate students.

Several sponsoring companies and organizations supporting minority businesses will be present at the event, along with a number of local community members.

“We have been successful in obtaining grants that support economic development, but this night also supports our students who gain valuable experiences working with our companies,” said Dr. Shanda Gore, associate vice president for the Minority Business Development Center and Catharine S. Eberly Center for Women. “We even have past UT alumni coming out that evening to support the next generation.”
