Event Description

Harness the power of Happy Hour with NJYP and Cheers for Charity! Periodically, we dedicate a special happy hour to a worthy cause, and collect a small $5 cover charge from each attendee. For May we’re raising money (and our glasses) to help Matt Van Giezen and the Team Challenge for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation http://www.active.com/donate/virginia12newjersey/mvg. So join NJYP at this mix & mingle event for a night of fun fundraising.

 

Cost:
$5 cover that is due at the door. 100% of the cover will go to the 501c3 organization that is hosting the event.


Who Can Attend:
Anyone who is 21 to 39 years old.
No RSVP needed but we would appreciate it if Members could RSVP to the right so we can get a general headcount.

 

EVERYONE who donates the $5 will get a wristband. The wristband will then get you access to these specials:
2 for $10 Cosmos, http://www.aboverestaurantbar.com/ladies-night (men and women)
$5 Cheers for Charity Cherry Lemonade (UV Cherry Vodka, Triple Sec, Lemonate, Sugar Rum)

About Team Challenge and CCFA:

My closest friend spent a month out on medical leave, 2 weeks in the hospital, for ulcerative colitis and is still healing from it.  I definitely want to attend and support, after seeing how awful it was for her - It's great that you are having a fundraiser focused on that disease.

 

See you all there!
