Mark your calendars for our second annual Light the Way 5K on Saturday, June 23. Online registration is now available! If you would like to find out more information about sponsorship opportunities, please contact the HBAL office. This is a family friendly event and we welcome all fitness levels to attend.
The April Hard Hat Happy Hour brought out over 30+ members and a lot of new faces. Thanks to Nebraska Title Company for hosting and providing wonderful food and beverages. We got the chance to practice for the upcoming YBP Bean Bag Tournament which will be at the Hog Roast on Friday, August 10. Registration is now open and will be limited to the first 16 teams of two.
The May Hard Hat Happy Hour will be at Lincoln Glass on Tuesday, May 22.
We completed our first Lighthouse project of 2018 at the end of April. We repaired and painted a storage room closet as well as built a shelf for their homework room. Thank you to all of the YBP members who helped make this project a success. Be sure to watch your email for other opportunities to get involved with Lighthouse!
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.
