Anyone planning to attend the Leadership Lackawanna Mix Mingle and Jingle fundraising event at the Electric City Trolley Museum, Scranton, Dec.12, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. will have an opportunity to get into the holiday spirit amidst the trolley museum's Annual Festival of Trees, and food tables showcasing a variety of foods from various outlets. The museum will be decorated in traditional holiday decor.
The Electric City Trolley Museum has been a great partner for this and other events hosted by Leadership Lackawanna. The open floor plan, and flexibility of space is a great match for our event. It also provides a great backdrop during the holiday season thanks to the Festival of Trees, said Michelle Williams, Leadership Lackawanna, and director, Grant Support Services at Lackawanna College. Last year, approximately 150 people attended the event.
Proceeds from the fundraising event will benefit Leadership Lackawanna, a non-profit organization that works to provide leadership opportunities to local teens, professionals, and executives through the Leadership Lackawanna Core Program, Tomorrow's Leaders Today, and the Leadership Lackawanna Executive Program. Williams said, For more than 30 years, Leadership Lackawanna has provided community members and professionals with leadership training, networking and learning opportunities through its nine-month core program. In addition, the program works with local non-profits to assist with special events and community service projects...
She added that Leadership Lackawanna program has helped establish a number of well-known community events, programs and facilities, such as Dress for Success Lackawanna, The Restoration of Hanlon's Grove at Nay Aug Park, The Heritage Explorer Bike Tour, and the GVTA Business Plan Competition.
