Philanthropy and the Young Professional
Mar 10, 2010
The young professional generation (xer’s and y’s) sometimes get a bad rap. People say we are lazy, have a since of entitlement and aren’t motivated easily. Well gsSCENE begs to differ. In fact our problem is the complete opposite. We have people saying, “I want to do more.” For some of us it’s easy to find the place we want to volunteer. But for others, we just don’t even know where to start. So on March 16 gsSCENE hosts Philanthropy and the Young Professional.
This event will take place at Prestwick Country Club from 8:30-10:30 a.m. All gsSCENE members that work for a nonprofit have been invited to come and have a booth set up and a chance to talk to other members on what their organization does.
Jonathan Kresken, Waccamaw Community Foundation, and Cookie Sprouse, Chapin Foundation, will also present on philanthropic efforts along the Grand Strand. You’ll learn how these respective foundations work and how you can make a difference in your community. Benefits of volunteering will be discussed and various community charities will be on hand to assist you in learning how to make a difference!
And before you leave, the attendees will get to vote, from the nonprofits there, which one will benefit from our Kickin’ for Charity Kickball Tournament on May 6. Last year this event raised over $2,500 for United Way of Horry County.
