Parents Focus of 1st E3 Event

The members of Central Florida Chapter – E3 have started development of their first community based event. Pampering Our Parents Day is set to be held on Saturday, August 2, 2014 and will feature a variety of businesses showcasing their services and a variety of free workshops. The goal of the event is to give parents valuable knowledge and support as they get ready to send their children back to school. E3 Business Group, Inc. (www.e3businessgroup.org) is a national non-profit which provides support, coaching, and mentoring to aspiring entrepreneurs while enhancing their ability to be advocates for positive change in the communities where they do business.

Financial literacy, Home and Student Safety, Self Improvement, Nutrition, Keeping your home/office clean, and Health & Wellness are just some of the topics being covered. The event will be held outside of Asher Business Group, Inc. in Melbourne, FL. Asher provides small business consulting and tax services to small and medium sized businesses, non-profit, and independent professionals. Asher will be joined by local and regional companies who all about the welfare of parents and recognize the importance of helping them get ready for another school year. “We talked about how we could give back in support of the students before the school year begins.” commented Anthony Butler, Sr., National Executive Director of E3. “What we realized is that the parents are often overlooked. We want to show them some love and motivate them to be the best mom, dad, or guardian possible for the children.”

The event is free to the public and will run from 10am – 4pm. Butler is currently discussing sponsorships with a number of organizations who are committed to the community. “We have strong partners in North and Central Florida and look to add a few more as we begin to create a footprint in the Orlando/Melbourne/Clearwater region.” E3 has 8 members and is actively vetting potential businesses. They have over 100 in North Florida (Jacksonville, FL) and over 600 around the country.
