Take the SUMOs Bowling: SUMO Heavy Co-Sponsors the PhilaMade 2011 Kickoff Party.

February 4, 2011 by John Suder

PhilaMade is a newly formed networking group for creative professionals living/working in the 215/610 area code.

Group organizer Joe Rinaldi (of Happy Cog) asked us (along with MissionStaff) to help sponsor their 2011 kick-off party and we were more than happy to help out.

Over 60 people showed up at North Bowl in Northern Liberties to bowl a few frames, hoist many Kensingers and share some good grub (including the now-famous North Bowl Tater Tots).

As someone who’s made the rounds in the Philly business networking scene, it was a refreshing change (no insurance salesman). The crowd was full of like-minded folks working and engaging in all forms of creative endeavours.

We look forward to more of these meet-ups and encourage you to check them out on Facebook and connect with some really great people.

Update: A great set of event photos by Jennifer Helene are now up on the PhilaMade Flickr page.
