As summer nears the end, it is time to bring back the YPN Barbecue! Many of you remember how amazing this event is. After a brief hiatus last year, we will be bringing it back. The last time we held this event we had over 300 attendees. You get an opportunity to meet folks from all walks of life, and all sorts of organizations and companies.
This year, the BBQ will be a joint fundraiser for YPN and EDRC (Eating Disorders Resource Center), a non-profit that serves Silicon Valley by:
Increasing awareness and understanding of eating disorders for the general public and for health professionals; promoting early diagnosis, effective treatment, and recovery; and advocating for mental health parity legislation and effective insurance coverage.
EDRC offers an education and outreach program on the early detection and intervention of eating disorders, free local support groups for sufferers and their family and friends, live help via phone and email support, and a comprehensive, online resource directory.
The EDRC team wants to welcome and thank all donors and volunteers for supporting their efforts. Extra donations will be accepted at the event and are tax-deductible.
As in previous years, the barbecue is open to all Bay Area young professionals. Events hosted by YPN have attracted companies/schools including Apple, Brocade, Cisco, eBay, EMC, Facebook, Genentech, Google, HP, IBM, Intel, Juniper, Microsoft, NetApp, NVIDIA, Oracle, PayPal, Qualcomm, Scientific Atlanta, SCU, SJSU, Symantec, WebEx, Yahoo!, etc.
In addition to the barbecue, which will include vegetarian options, there will be games, prizes and a raffle drawing.
There is a MANDATORY registration fee which is detailed below in the PAYMENT DETAILS section. Each paying guest will receive a raffle ticket and wristband at the barbecue. Additional raffle tickets can be won during the games or purchased for $2 each.
When registering online please indicate if you are a vegetarian or have other dietary restrictions. Also, there will be no event ticket or wristband sent to you; we will have wristbands and a list of registered guests at the event. The park is accessible via public transportation for those without transportation. Carpooling is recommended as there is a city enforced parking fee of $6 per vehicle.
