Newport Beach, CA (PressExposure) February 05, 2013 -- On February 23 from 8:30am until 12:00pm, Concordia University will host several hundred businesses to introduce them to a 13-week program that has helped thousands since 2010. Many of these businesses come from the sponsoring cities of Aliso Viejo, Buena Park, Costa Mesa, Dana Point, Huntington Beach, Laguna Niguel, Santa Margarita, and Santa Ana, with more pending. Representatives from many chambers, plus community, civic and business leaders, including Wing Lam, CEO of Wahoo's, and Allergan Pharmaceuticals will be participating, along with support from Cox cable, PATCH newspaper chain, KFI AM 640 and other trade groups.
This is the first time a large number of cities have collaborated with academia and media outlets to support the business community. The event is also an open call for retailers to submit their application to become the site of one of KFI AM 640's future cash mob broadcasts.
KFI AM 640 will sponsor its next Cash Mob broadcast on Wednesday, February 20 at Zlacket's Market in Garden Grove with talk show host Bill Carroll from 12:00 noon until 3:00pm, and will continue their commitment to support locally owned businesses after seeing much success at their last one for the Toy Boat children's toy store in Newport Beach. Radio Host Bill Handel and the KFI Street Team brought in hundreds of new customers and expect to do the same for Zlacket's Market, which has been an Orange County family owned landmark since 1927.
This is a continuation of KFI AM 640's efforts to support the business community and Program Director, Robin Bertolucci shares, "KFI is proud to support great local businesses in Southern California that need a little help - that's what neighbors do for each other and we're proud to be a part of this great big Southern California neighborhood."
The "Helping 100 Businesses for 100 Days" program is Saturday, February 23 from 8:30am to 12:00pm at Concordia University in Irvine, California. The free workshop is open to all businesses inside and outside of Orange County. Each participant will have the opportunity to continue in the successive 100 day program, which is free to qualifying businesses.
