CHICAGO -- March 17 -- The National Automatic Merchandising Association announced today that the Emerging Leaders Network and Foundation are partnering to host a "friendraiser" at next month's NAMA OneShow. The goal of the event is to combine networking with a purpose: fostering cross-generational networking and raising awareness around the mission of the NAMA Foundation.

"The ELN recognizes the value the NAMA Foundation brings to the industry through education, advocacy and research," ELN chair Paul Tullio said. "ELN leadership wants to make sure we are giving back in a meaningful way and this event is a great start to that process."

The event, featuring drinks, appetizers and conversation and networking, will include ELN members, PFG campaign donors and any OneShow attendee interested in learning more about the NAMA Foundation. With a suggested donation of $25/per attendee, all event proceeds will benefit the NAMA Foundation Scholarship Program and no advance RSVP is needed.

The "friendraiser" event will be held from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, April 10, at the Center for Community near the trade show floor. OneShow attendees with questions can contact Lindsey Nelson at or Michael Bittner at
