Leaders in the local business and real estate community will meet under the stars on Thursday to raise funds to benefit the Orange County United Way, according to a press release.

The 12th Annual Orange County United Way Real Estate and Building Industry Mixer, "Cinco de Mayo Under the Stars," will be held from 5 to 8 p.m., May 5, at the Balboa Bay Club and Resort in Newport Beach.

Proceeds from the event will go to provide food, shelter and basic medical supplies to in-need county children and families.

The private event is sponsored by Bank of America, Donahue Schriber and the Orange County Business Journal.

About $200,000 was raised at the 2010 mixer.
