SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

A local business owner says after a night out on the town she decided young adults in the Ark-La-Tex needed much more than just late night clubs.

Charlie Green is the founder of "Party with a purpose" and hosted its networking boutique on Saturday in Shreveport.

The goal was to give local business owners an outlet to collaborate on business ideas and community service in a party-like atmosphere.

Green says, " I'm trying to get businesses to come together to collaborate instead of compete in this area and to also garner some adult activity or entertainment that is not necessarily in the club."

Green plans to host another event this fall.  For more information on how to get your business, log on to http://www.pwpnetworking.com/ or search Party with a Purpose on Facebook.
