The Regional Business After Hours themed “Black and Orange Bash” will be from 5:30 p.m. until 7 Oct. 19 at the Mill in Starkville.

October’s event is hosted by the Greater Starkville Development Partnership.

Greater Starkville Development Partnership Director of Tourism Jennifer Prather said Regional Business After Hours is held three times per year by the West Point Growth Alliance, Greater Starkville Development Partnership and Columbus-Lowndes Chamber of Commerce.

Prather said the event is free for any chamber members, and prospective members are welcome to attend.

“Columbus and Starkville have monthly Business After Hours, so this is a good opportunity for West Point businesses to participate in a Business After Hours and network with other Golden Triangle businesses,” Growth Alliance Director Lisa Klutts said.

Prather said business or business casual attire was appropriate for the event.

“Come as you are after work,” Prather said. “This is a chance to kick back and relax after work and network with other chamber members.”

The event will be catered by The Veranda and feature fall craft beer tasting. DJ Thurlow’s Party to Go will perform.

Prather said member businesses donate door prizes, and attendees can register to win the prizes if they are wearing black and orange.

“The Black and Orange Bash is a fun opportunity to celebrate Fall and Halloween,” Prather said.

Regional Business After Hours is sponsored by The Veranda, Express Employment Professionals, The Mill, Clark Beverages Group and Mitchell Distributing.
