Grameen America Spring Social

Tue, 2011-05-24 11:39
Last Thursday (May 19, 2011) we had our first Spring Social event at the Trespa Design Centre hosted by Grameen America’s Young Professional (YP) committee. The event was organized to raise awareness about the great work that Grameen America is doing and also to fundraise for Grameen America borrowers. It was no doubt also a great networking event for young professionals who share a common mission of helping create a better world.

 Trespa Design Centre generously donated their space in Soho for the event and the cutting edge architecture and design was a big hit with our guests. We also had hors d’oeuvres and drinks supplied by Whole Foods and pizza from Harry’s Italian. Although this wasn’t the first YP event (each YP member takes turns organizing small events throughout the year such as the Bring Your Own Cause event at Delancey Lounge and presentations at Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank and YPFP), this was the first collaborative effort on the part of the whole committee. It was by far our biggest and most successful Young Professionalwith many great items such as Mets tickets, US Open tickets, a football signed by the NY Jets, Nike items and football, Equinox Monthly passes and a class at Murray’s Cheese. There were also interesting raffle items like America Museum of Natural History Passes, Living Social Coupon, and Jewelry from Prismera.
