On January 26, 2015, the YMF hosted its 19th Annual YMF Winter Social. The event was once again a success, with an attendance of 207 engineers and their guests. Everyone enjoyed hanging out with their coworkers, catching up with colleagues, and meeting other young engineers and students. Our student members took advantage of the opportunity to meet engineers from around the area, learn about local companies, and discuss career goals and opportunities.
During the event, YMF members sold raffle tickets for prizes donated from local companies. The prizes included Sixers tickets, movie tickets, as well as various restaurant and retail gift cards. In a continually sluggish economy, our sponsors stepped up and collectively donated an amazingly generous number of prizes! The large number of prizes resulted in high raffle sales and will allow us to donate a total of $2,005 for charity ($200 to the Future Cities Competition, $805 to the Penn State Chapter of Bridges to Prosperity and $1,000 to Philabundance/Habitat for Humanity) ! Thank you to everyone who contributed.
Many thanks to Drew Sirianni, P.E. of Pennoni Associates and the entire 2014-2015 YMF Board for planning the event.
