Milton makes connections over cake

Better Together hosts first business event

Posted:

MILTON, Ga. – April 16 was a sticky sweet day for some residents at the first in a series of business connection events.

Held at Nothing Bundt Cakes, 5230 Windward Parkway, the event aimed to bring the community together at a local business for fun and education. At this event, residents could learn how to decorate cakes.

This was the first business connection event held by Milton’s Better Together group.

“We started this to connect residents to our local businesses,” said Wayne Boston, community builder for the city of Milton. “We are hopeful this program will provide an opportunity for residents to meet each other and, at the same time, provide support for our local businesses.”

As a group, Better Together aims to make “connections” through the community between people and neighbors, largely focusing on bringing groups such as the elderly or those with special needs into the wider community.

“We want to increase awareness of what residents can do to support the city,” said Gloria Mattei, owner of Nothing Bundt Cakes. “They can do this while connecting businesses to the community.”

The Windward Parkway location is the second Nothing Bundt Cakes store in the state.
