As we approach the end of the year, we focus on what is left to come. One of YPC’s signature events on the calendar every year is the Annual Gala. This year the Annual Gala is taking place on Wednesday Dec. 4, starting at 6 p.m. The venue this year is new, the Embassy Club Downtown (34th floor of the Ruan Building). A FREE event with great food, great networking, and a great recap of 2013 in YPC; followed by a preview to the 2014 year in YPC!

Another great event taking place this fall is a new event called “Thanks Giving.” A collaboration between Impact Downtown and Volunteer committees — has brought a long a great opportunity to give back to the community.  The event will take place on Thanksgiving, starting at 5:30 p.m. Check the YPC website for more details.
