Young Professionals Network 2018 Happy Hour and Food Drive
S/PA Young Professionals’ Network (YPN) had its annual fall Happy Hour at the Zeppelin Hall Beer Garden in Jersey City on November 1st. Fifteen YPN mentors and friends got together to enjoy delicious food and drinks, network and exchange stories. Board Member and mentor Chris Beltran, brought a new mentor, Dennard, also a St. Benedict’s alumnus, to the happy hour and both also attended the event at the Community FoodBank of New Jersey the following Saturday (pictured together above).
Donations included food which was given to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, and additional financial donations to S/PA. The YPN hosts these events to provide Young Professionals at S/PA an opportunity to meet one another and network, enhance their mentoring impact through the support of other mentors, and find other ways to give back to the community.
