Thank you to everyone who joined us on April 19, 2016 and helped us kick off YPEM in New York. It was a great start to 2016, and YPEM is looking forward to more great events this year to spread the mission and awareness of Expect Miracles Foundation in New York. We are thrilled to be able to bring New York’s young financial community together in support of the fight against cancer.
Over 60 people representing 30 different financial firms joined us at Emmett O’Lunney’s in support of the fight against cancer. Guests enjoyed an evening of after-work drinks and networking while they raised money for cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering as well as our Expect Miracles Foundation College Scholarship, awarded annually to a young adult impacted by cancer. Everyone who attended the event had the opportunity to win some great prizes including a Vineyard Vines Tie, an Ame & Lulu bag, and more. Two of our lucky winners from the evening were Mark from HSBC and Brian from First New York Securities, congrats!
The evening would not have been possible without the dedication of the YPEM NYC Leadership Team. A huge thanks to Matthew Mackay, Leah Ritchie, Matthew Collins, Grace Barnard, Danielle Gaglione, Nick Lombardo, and Paul DeSalvo. This group generously volunteered their free time to make this event possible – thank you!
YPEM is looking forward to an exciting 2016 in New York. We will be hosting summer social event at the Frying Pan as well as our Expect Miracles Kan Jam Classic hosted by YPEM in August. Check us out on LinkedIn, follow our facebook page, and sign up for our mailing list to keep up to date on upcoming YPEM events.
