Autism Speaks to Young Professionals Event at the NYSE

Our dear client Autism Speaks is having their first young professionals event and we actually get to attend, rather than plan it! Autism Speaks to Young Professionals is a cocktail party taking place on the trading floor of the New York Stock Exchange. We can’t think of a better way to entice the Generation Y crowd into getting involved in a cause that will severely impact our future (our children!) unless we do something about it.

Young Professionals Event Events with Ginger & Co.

The event takes place on Thursday, August 6, 2009 from 7-10 p.m. It’s being organized by the sassy and savvy Justine Benisch, who we’ve had the pleasure to work with on numerous Autism Speaks events, so it’s pretty much guaranteed to be a fantastic evening. $50 pays for your entrance fee, open bar, hors d’oeuvres, and of course, supports an organization that is changing the future of autism.
