The Cash Mob is DMA’s new way of encouraging community economic stimulus: Everyone shows up at a local DMA business “en masse” with cash and business cards in hand and spends a few dollars intermixed with a lot of “networking on steroids.”
Faces in the crowd at this first Cash Mob included several President Lincolns, Hamiltons and Jacksons making the event a success! Henry Herrington of Steverino's “shared the wealth” by donating 10% of the money he received to local chartiy Hands of Christ-A Duluth Cooperative Ministry Director Mary Roberts.
Hot pizza, tasty subs, spicy conversations and business cards were shared between DMA members and the many enthusiastic guests who showed up for the event.
DMA President Jim Johnson stated his desire to make the Cash Mob a monthly event. And with a banner cry of “have cash will travel” we expect many other DMA members will be happy to host future Cash Mobs!
The Cash Mob concept helps the local businesses, which helps our local economy, which helps the comunity in which we all reside. And that is to be saluted — a true economic stimulus package!
The next Cash Mob has already been scheduled for April 16 at 5 p.m. at Kurt's Bistro in Duluth. Come join the fun: Bring cash and business cards!
