Finishing Up a Great 2012 with YPC

Young Professionals Connection Closing Out 2012

2. Save the Date for the Annual Event

This year's celebration will be held at the World Food Prize Hall of Laureates, one of the premiere venues in the state. Don't miss this opportunity to experience this incredible space, network, and hear more about YPC's accomplishments in 2012. Come early to enjoy cocktails and hors 'douevres. Doors open at 5:30 and the meeting begins at 6:30.

3. Give Back.

We'll be hosting a toy drive through the month of November and will have a food drive at the Annual Event. Join us for a warm bowl of chili to benefit Anawim Housing at our Chili for Charity event on Nov. 28.

4. Celebrate Democracy (or at least the end of political ads)

YPC will co-host the DSM Vote party in conjunction with Proof, Google, Des Moines Social Club, and Startup City on Nov. 6. Live results, networking, giveaways, and free food and (2) drinks will make this a night to remember, no matter who wins!

5. Get involved! There are tons of events in November where you can celebrate everything from beer and wine to diversity. Be sure to check out the YPC calendar of events to plan out your month.
