The Special Events Committee is a group of members dedicated to coordinating the networking and fundraising efforts of HVYP. From our brand new HVYP Unwind social networking get-togethers at the hottest venues to annual fundraisers with plenty of excitement, this committee organizes everything from A to Z, including locations, sponsors, prizes, decor, and more!
HVYP hosts premier networking events for young pros in the region, and we do it in style. From new bars and restaurants to indoor rock-climbing and golf simulators, we’ll connect you with valuable people and places. Our newest series, HVYP Unwind features prime face-time with the region’s young leaders and a brief program featuring exclusive introductions for new members.
We organize the annual HVYP fundraisers, where all proceeds are donated to The Chamber Foundation’s Richard W. Mitchell Memorial Workforce Development Scholarship. Our flagship events – ‘Kicks for College’ Kickball Tournament and ‘Strikes for Scholars’ Bowling Tournament – raise more than $10,000 annually for scholarships, awarded every year at a Chamber Contact Breakfast. This committee organizes the venues, food selection, prizes and auctions, tournament structures, itineraries, among other event management duties.
