ConnectOC 2.0 Recipe for Success

What do you get when you throw 500+ OC Professionals into a luxurious lounge, add delicious food,  toss in a silent auction and sprinkle it with entrepreneurship & networking?  The largest Social Networking group in Southern California, ConnectOC!


ConnectOC 2.0 took place on Thursday, September 9, 2010 at the Hilton Orange County/Costa Mesa. The first 250 attendees were treated  to a goodie bag with various discounts and products from local Orange County sponsors.  Hilton OrangeCounty/Costa Mesa treated attendees to Lobster tacos.  Meringue Bake Shop provided the delicious cupcakes and Boardwalk Ice Cream Co gave everyone the best ice cream experience in the world!  There were also several well established bloggers sharing information and experiences about blogging.  The Rest Stop Massage Team helped wrap up the festivities by giving guests a FREE massage.

The well attended event raised over $4000 to benefit local non-profit organizations Build Futures and the Orange County Chapter of Child Help.
