Long Island Pet Professionals sets sail for a summer boat cruise networking event!

Long Island Pet Professionals is excited to announce our Boat Cruise and Cocktail Party Networking event being held for
area pet professionals. The exclusive event will take place on Thursday, August 21, 2014 at 6pm and the boat sets sail at 6pm,
guests are asked to be there by 5:45pm, and is leaving from Riverhead, NY behind the Long Island Aquarium.

  • The event will include plenty of networking for pet professionals to mingle and get to know each other better.  

  • There will also be a Naturalist on board who will point out interesting facts about the area along the cruise!

  • We will make a stop at the preserve island along the way, where everyone can get off the boat and walk around for a bit.

  • This is a cocktail party after all so included in the price will be wine, beer, bottled water, and lite cocktail nibblers too -
    think cheese, crackers, fresh fruit, etc.

  • A swag bag for each attendee of the event as a thank you for attending!

A portion of the proceeds will go to one of our member non-profit rescue groups - to be chosen the night of the event!

There will be plenty of networking while on the boat cruise and attendees are encouraged to bring plenty of business cards and
their cameras! The boat leaves the dock promptly at 6pm, so attendees are asked to be there by 5:45pm!
