Good things happen when great people come together all in the name of philanthropy. On Saturday May fifth, five regional young professionals’ groups: Full Circle Young Professionals (from the Duneland and Portage Chambers), EPIC (Crossroads Chamber), Young Leaders United (YLU – United Way of Porter County), La Porte Jaycees (La Porte Chamber), and the Lakefront Career Network (LCN – Michigan City Chamber) will host the first annual Region Games!
We asked some representatives why their group decided to participate in this one of a kind event:
Mackenna Schon from Young Leaders United shared that, “YLU loves seeing people across the Region come together for events like this; professional development, networking, and supporting non-profits at the same time!”
“The La Porte Jaycees are excited to be a part of the Region Games! It will present a great opportunity to connect with other young professionals throughout the region while also giving back to great organizations at the same time. We’ll be ready… hopefully.” Said Drew Gesse.
All are encouraged to join the region’s young professionals for a day of fun, complete with; Tug-O-War, Relay Games, Trivia, and a nonprofit fair! If you work up an appetite, and we are sure you will, food and drinks will be available to purchase from Leroy's "Hot Stuff”.
Each participant and spectator will get a chance to vote for their favorite nonprofit. All proceeds will benefit the top three voted nonprofits winning them cold, hard cash!
Here is a list of the participating organizations: American Cancer Society, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana - Duneland Club, Duneland Family YMCA, Family & Youth Services Bureau, Girls on the Run of Northwest Indiana , Housing Opportunities, Jacob's Ladder Pediatric Rehab Center, Porter County Substance Abuse Council, Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Indiana, Women in Bloom, and The Food Bank of Northwest Indiana.
