There is a brief blurb in the Morning Call today about our Business Card exchange last night:
"A nonprofit group that helps young professionals to network in the Lehigh Valley received a $10,000 state grant to promote itself and host events.
The money will help the Network of Young Professionals kick off a corporate fundraising campaign and raise its profile, president Abraham Nemitz said.
The group was founded in 2000 to encourage young professionals to stay in the area by helping them build social networks and find fun activities locally, Nemitz said. It now has 1,022 people on its e-mail list, 200 dues-paying members and hosts two monthly events, he said.
Sen. Pat Browne, R-Lehigh, helped the group get the grant from the state department of community and economic development."
We had a good turnout last night, with around 40 young professionals and community leaders attending. It was held at the Allentown Art Museum, who opened up the galleries for us. Special thanks to Farr Lofts for sponsoring the event!
