It’s Better on the Beach — Beach Meetup 2013

It’s Better on the Beach — Beach Meetup 2013The Allegria Hotel, situated on the pristine 3.5 mile white sandy beach of Long Beach, NY, also known as the Riviera of the East, served as an elegant and enjoyable venue for the Social Media Association’s annual Summer Meetup, aptly hashtagged #BeachMeetup.

As this event kicked off our annual membership drive, many of the members renewed and several new ones signed up for membership which entitled them to a free drink ticket, and a chance to win a basket or prize provided by Lou Pizzileo, 1-800-Flowers, I Fly Trapeze Classes, Sueanne Shirzay Jewelry, Social Media Association, Allegria Hotel, and Girl Scouts of Nassau County.
