The Cufflinks and Pearls Networking Mixer is a community-sponsored event with a goal to bridge the gap between the leaders of today and tomorrow. This event is tailored to encourage networking and building professional, political and entrepreneurial relationships, and was initiated by the Fountain City Classic Committee and its Chairman, The Honorable Calvin Smyre. The mixer has served as the kickoff to the Fountain City Classic Weekend. The event features live entertainment heavy hors d’oeuvres, giveaways, and a cash bar.
THIS YEAR, the networking mixer will be VIRTUAL, with on-screen video networking.

Past guests include Mayor Kasim Reed of Atlanta, Georgia, Mayor Teresa Tomlinson of Columbus, Georgia, Keshia Knight-Pulliam (“Rudy from the Cosby Show), Jeff Johnson, Ed Gordon, David Banner, and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.
