December 2018 President’s Message
by Hayley Lane, YBP President
Thank you to those who were able to join us at the YBP Tailgate. It was an early and cold morning, but as true Nebraskans we “all come together in all kinds of weather” to support the Huskers.
Don’t forget to get your RSVP’s in now for the YBP Holiday Party! Mark your calendars for Thursday, January 17 from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. at the Graduate Hotel. The $20 admission includes food, beer and Top Golf fun! We will be collecting toiletry donations for Movers for Moms® this year. A HUGE thank you to our sponsors for helping make this what is sure to be a great event!
I am looking forward to the new year and all the opportunities to connect with other Young Building Professionals. I hope you’ll join us for one of the many events we are planning for 2019. If you’re interested in hosting a Hard Hat Happy Hour, please contact Andrea Wilkins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
YBP & The Lighthouse
In 2017, the YBP Council formed an amazing partnership with The Lighthouse which has been very fulfilling as we work to provide a positive influence in the kids’ lives. In June 2017, we held our inaugural Light the Way 5K which raised $800 for The Lighthouse. Other activities have included an ice cream social, workdays to powerwash and stain their pergolas, celebrity judging of their annual salsa tasting competition and a game night.
Food Bank of Lincoln BackPack Program
In 2016, the YBP Council began collecting free-will donations at their events to be given to the Food Bank of Lincoln’s BackPack Program. To date, the group has given over $695 to this great cause.
