BROWNSVILLE, Texas – Most of us have probably heard of speed dating. A local independent insurance company is deciding to put a twist on that concept with an event called “speed friending.”
Insurance Advisors Agency inviting seniors from Brownsville to the local Golden Corral restaurant. Dozens gathering today for some food, fun and friendship. They sat at tables with the goal to speak with each other and then move on to another table and do the same thing; all to make new friends.
Ines Jimenez, IAA Supervisory General Agent, “They sit at a table and the buzzer goes off, so you get to introduce yourself and say a very interesting fact about yourself. Then the next person gets to speak and so the same thing and hopefully at the end of the event some of these people will make a new friend, share a phone numbers and maybe they’ll get together.”
February is the month of friendship and love and it was a way for the local insurance agency to give back to the community. Similar events were held by the agency in McAllen and Harlingen. The seniors we spoke with say it was a great way to meet new friends.
