GOTE, a humorous acronym for “Going Out To Eat” is a monthly community dinner party that we host at various local restaurants. This program is brought to you by OnRichmondHill.com and Pixel Thought Media, a marketing and advertising company.

The goal of GOTE is to provide the local community with a fun and delicious way to meet up and strike up a conversation. Don’t think of GOTE as a networking event but rather as dinner with friends you haven’t made yet. We encourage our participants to have a good time, make connections, and develop relationships.

This month we will be at Rhapsody on Tuesday, October 20th.

  • Arrival time: 6:30 pm.
  • There will be individual bills
  • You are welcome to bring someone but don’t hesitate to come by yourself

Please go to www.gote.ca  to register/let us know you are coming.

Please let me know if you have any questions ~ Marj Andre 416 822-5139 marj@OnRichmondhill.com
