Holiday Huddle 2021

Collaboration and Celebration
Thursday, December 9th from 3:00 - 6:30
Monarch Place (lower level), 100 Brugh Ave, Butler, PA

The Holiday Huddle is an opportunity for all members of our Butler County community to gather in a forum of celebration, information sharing, and relationship-building.  The first of its kind for Butler County, the Holiday Huddle will provide you with the opportunity to mingle with other people and organizations who care about Butler County and are working to make it a better place.  There will also be two brainstorming sessions for those interested in discussing the biggest challenges facing our community. The first will be focused on challenges/solutions in our local schools, and the second session will be based on ideas you provide in our Holiday Huddle Collaboration Box, where you can submit challenges/gaps you have faced or share solutions you've seen work that you think others should know about!


The Holiday Huddle is focused on the sharing of information regarding available resources, the identification of unmet needs in our community, and the discovery and nurturing of relationships and collaborative partnerships that can make our county a better place and will have representatives from human service agencies, K-12 schools, colleges/universities, houses of worship, businesses and community members.


Food from local businesses will be provided.  Admission is FREE, and most existing BCF members are additionally entitled to a table at the Holiday Huddle as a part of their membership.  If you're not currently a member but would like to have a table at the event to share information about what you do, the cost is only $25.  And that $25 is credited towards your 2022 membership if you decide to join us on a regular basis!


We sincerely hope you are able to join us.  Please come ready with ideas of how we can work together to continue making Butler County a great place to live!


Thank you!
