Independence Business Alliance Teams Up with Borgata at Holiday Party

Photos, story by Deja Cromartie

The Independence Business Alliance (IBA)  hosted their annual holiday party to spread the holiday cheer with business owners, professionals, corporate and community partners in Philadelphia’s vibrant LGBT business community. The fully packed Holiday Soiree was held at the beautiful Radisson Blu Warwick Hotel. Guests were dressed in festive attire and enjoyed a delicious selection of hors d’oeuvres, several impressive food stations and double open bars. During the event, the Director of the IBA announced a new partnership with the Borgata Hotel in Atlantic City

The Independence Business Alliance is a membership-based business advocacy organization dedicated to making the Philadelphia region an influential and diverse LGBT business community with an impact on economic development, equal rights and policy issues. The IBA is an official affiliate of the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC). This was the perfect event to bring in the holiday cheer. We’re looking forward to the future IBA events and continued success!
