UPDATED: The Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation (LVEDC) Conversation and Cocktails event featuring U.S. Reps. Charlie Dent and Matthew Cartwright, originally scheduled for Dec. 19, will be postponed.

Due to the uncertainty of the legislative calendar this month, all parties have decided it best to postpone the event until further notice.

LVEDC hopes to reschedule the event for the first quarter of 2018.

Anyone who registered for the event via PayPal will be refunded immediately, according to LVEDC Director of Marketing Michael Keller.

Any additional questions may be directed to Keller at [email protected] or (610) 266-2217.
