Step Up: Mission & Margaritas

Online event

Please also sign up at this link so you get the Zoom link & password: https://www.youngprofessionalsofseattle.com/event/mission-margaritas/ Provide some needed comfort to cancer patients! Make your favorite margarita or grab your favorite drink and join YP Impact as we make much-needed port pillows for cancer patients (one of the most requested items). Port pillows are used to by cancer patients to keep car seat belts from rubbing against the ports they receive chemo through. We will teach both sew and no-sew options!!! Your confirmation email will include direct links to purchasing the materials. About YP Impact: YP Impact is the 501(c)3 charitable organization of YPGroup Communities, formed in response to young professionals (professionals young at heart) wanting to make a difference in their community. We empower connection, inspire change and create impact through quarterly campaigns focused on different social issues and featuring reputable nonprofits. We offer a different kind of professional networking, building community among like-minded young professionals and the issues that are most important to them. About American Cancer Society: At the American Cancer Society, we’re on a mission to free the world from cancer. Until we do, we’ll be funding and conducting research, sharing expert information, supporting patients, and spreading the word about prevention. All so you can live longer — and better.

YPOxBellevue | 2019

Bellevue

YPOxBellevue, formally known as Loop Networking, is an Eastside professional networking and relationship building event. We've rebranded, relocated and put together a new leadership team to host the most ambitious networkers and savvy business leaders the Seattle area has to offer. You can expect to enjoy high-caliber networking, social food, delicious signature cocktail drinks (all at happy hour prices) and an upbeat atmosphere found only at one of the Eastside's most sophisticated social scene. There is one rule for YPOxBellevue: You may not talk about your business or ask of another about their business (unless that business is the sponsor) while in the no business talk time. (No prospecting or business while at the bar). SHOULD YOU BREAK THE RULE: If you do break the rule and are caught, you are asked to buy one drink to redeem your placement in event. The general premise is that in business you are more likely to have repeat business with a person whom you know. This group literally forces our members to interact on a personal level thus building professional relationships that will lead to more referrals, connections, direct business, and other benefits of knowing someone outside of strictly business. Event Agenda: 5:30-7:00 | NO Business Talk 7:00-8:30 | Business talk ALLOWED to set follow-up appointments 5:30-8:30 | Happy hour specials for ALL! You are expected to pay for your own drinks while at the event. Light appetizers will be provided. https://www.ypo-x.com/bellevue
