This event United Kings County!
Health-conscious Brooklynites hobnobbed at a Downtown hotel on Wednesday during a networking session where they mixed, mingled, and learned more about the resources that host United Healthcare offers in the borough, according to a company employee.
“We wanted people to see what United Healthcare offers our community,” said Manuel Quezada. “All the different types of services.”
Attendees who came out to Flatbush Avenue Extension’s Tillary Hotel for the event enjoyed a spread of refreshments — including a free continental breakfast of pastries, sliced fruits, muffins, and smoothies — while some had their portrait drawn by an on-site caricaturist, and others relaxed by getting hand massages and manicures.
United Healthcare leaders also doled out three community grants totalling $5,000 at the meet-and-greet, which featured an appearance by the firm’s furry mascot, Dr. Health E. Hound, who showed up to promote the virtues of a balanced diet.
Guests walked away with goody-stuffed gift bags, whose swag included duffel bags and coffee mugs, according to Quezada, who called the day a success.
“It was a good bunch who showed up,” he said.
