Austin Weekly News hosted the 3rd Annual West Side Business Network Holiday Party on Thursday, December 3, 2015 at the Columbus Park Refectory. Hundreds of local residents and business leaders attended this festive event and enjoyed delicious food, raffle prizes, live entertainment provided by Local-Motions, networking and fun with family and friends.

Guests of the holiday party got the chance to reconnect with old friends, share information about special events taking place in the community and celebrate the holiday season in a cheerful atmosphere with a close-knit network that is like family.

Thank you to all of the sponsors, volunteers and guests who made the holiday party a great success!
