Dubbed “March Madness – The Mixer,” the Metropolitan Business & Citizens Association (MBCA) will hold its annual winter charity mixer at Cuba Libra in The Quarter at Tropicana starting 5:30pm Monday, March 11.

Slip out of the cold and into a dry mojito, and help raise funds for the MBCA’s selected charity this year, FACES 4 Autism. FACES is dedicated to autism awareness, education and support for families dealing with those stricken with autism (visit faces4autism.org).

According to the MBCA’s community relations director Gary Hill on the organization’s Web site (mbcanj.com), the MBCA holds one mid-winter mixer each year to help support one of the organization’s affiliated non-profit members.

“It is also a great way too help get over the winter madness and weather,” says Hill. “This year the selection committee has chosen a great cause — FACES for Autism — and we are hoping you will once again support this event on March 11th.”

FACES is a non-profit organization dedicated to education and support of children with Autism and their families. Created as a support group called Families for Autistic Children by the Mosca family in 2002 after their son Kyle was diagnosed, the family discovered that the need for services in southern New Jersey was so great that they gathered others together to help establish more awareness and support.

Mixing with the MBCA
By AC Weekly Staff

Mixing with the MBCA One of the great little perks of membership in Atlantic City’s Metropolitan Business and Citizens Association (MBCA) is attending the group’s mixers and luncheons. The events — such as the MBCA’s annual Summer Mixer coming up Tuesday, Aug. 17, at The Chelsea — travel around the city and highlight some of the best restaurants, casino rooms and venues in the city. “We do like to rotate the events around to our members,” says Gary Hill, spokesman for the MBCA. “We want to spread the business around.” The Summer Mixer, from 5-7:30pm will be held on The Chelsea’s 5th floor and pool area. The event is the main fundraiser for the MBCA’s scholarship fund. “We’ve given out more than $90,000 in scholarships to area students and teachers,” Hill says. “This event is where most of the funding comes from.” The mixer includes a silent and Chinese auction, hors d’oeuvres, a noodle bar, and music.
