The Young Professionals Group Ormond hosted its March networking social on March 2nd at the Ormond Brewing Company. It definitely poured like crazy. You know what though? That didn’t stop an outstanding turnout of the event. We had a lot of membership signups and saw a ton of new faces. Thank you to Ormond Brewing Company for hosting us and providing with enough craft beer to last the whole evening!

Our featured non-profit organization for the month of March was the Futures Foundation. The mission of the Futures Foundation is to engage business and civic leaders to promote and achieve excellence for Volusia County Public Schools. Through their Take Stock in Children program they are able to offer students college tuition scholarships, caring volunteer mentors, and hope for a better life. Take Stock and Children raises funds for these scholarships through individual, community, civic, and private donations. All contributions are matched 100% with dollars from the Florida Prepaid Scholarship Program.

Take Stock in Children has proven state-wide record with assisting ambitious, goal oriented students to graduate from high school, attend college, and become productive citizens in our community. YPGO was able to help support this program with a donation of $500.00 after the March social. We are off to an awesome start to 2017 with donations now totaling over $1,500!

Our April social kicks off the 2nd quarter of the year (hard to believe)! We will see you at Saldo’s Pizzeria for more of their delicious Italian food while we network, raise money and spotlight another nonprofit organization.
