YPGO hosted its September Networking Social at the First Green Bank in Ormond Beach on Thursday, September 1st. The First Green Bank is one of the first banks in the United States which has an environmental and social mission. There are so many community benefits of First Green Bank like a solar loan program and discounted interest rates for commercial and residential projects that meet green building criteria.

The September non-profit spotlight of the Young Professionals Group Ormond was the Childhood Cancer Foundation. The Childhood Cancer Foundation is committed to ensuring that no one has to face the diagnosis of childhood cancer alone, and secondly, they provide financial assistance to childhood cancer families during the most difficult time of their lives. This organization offers help in any way possible. They help children, the moms, the dads, the sisters and the brothers. They listen, they hug, and they do whatever they can do to help. We were happy to do anything that we could to help as well and after our September social were able to present that Childhood Cancer Foundation with a donation of $400.00.

We had a great time at our September social! A big thank you to Maria Bonita for donating some awesome Mexican food and to the First Green Bank for hosting us. We look forward to our October networking social at Beachside Brew Pub on October 6th.
