Campbell River’s young professionals ready to to party

They officially launch the YPCR with a fun and interactive night

You are invited to the Young Professionals of Campbell River (YPCR) Formal Gala Kickoff on Friday, Nov. 2 at the Maritime Heritage Centre.

Join them as they officially launch the YPCR with a fun and interactive night out filled with good food, networking, dancing and prizes! All proceeds from the evening are benefiting the Rotary Splash Park.

The YPCR is excited to help fundraise for this community project that will benefit many families in the area.

With Ryan Mennie, Campbell River City Councillor and 97.3 The Eagle Radio Host emceeing the evening along with a live twitter feed, membership booth, DJ and dancing it is sure to be a great time! The Gala will open with networking from 6:30-7:30 and appetizers provided by Fusilli Grill.  Following that dinner will be served with a special presentation by Myriah Foort, YPCR President and co-founder about the YPCR and what it has to offer members and the community.

“Working on this Gala has been a lot of fun,” says Gala Chair and YPCR Membership Director Elise Gregg. “We have an outstanding volunteer planning committee that has come on board, rolled up their sleeves and really put in a ton of enthusiasm and energy to ensure we kick things off on the right foot. Over the past few months there has been a lot of work behind the scenes getting the YPCR going so I am really excited to officially launch the YPCR to the community.”

The YPCR is committed to four main areas: community, professional development, social and business networking opportunities for young professionals in the Campbell River and surrounding areas. Join as a member in the month of October and attending the Gala will give one lucky person the chance to win a free annual membership!

“As a young leader in Campbell River who knows that our city is great and would love to see other people my age have a way of not just taking ownership, but be a part of a movement, when I heard about the heart and drive of the new YPCR group forming, I had to find out more. My schedule is quite full, but I knew I wanted to do what I could to help this new group get off the ground with the most successful Gala possible, so I joined the team” says Mark Myles, YPCR and gala committee member.
