A Community of Professionals Ages 21-45 Brought Together By Events
I have never been so proud of an event, or the people who helped make it successful, as I was last night.
A big thank you to our loyal, wonderful BYPA members, without whom there would BE no BYPA - I hope you all had fun!
Thank you to Bob Pan, for the masquerade inspiration and securing the beautiful venue. Also for the black lights and helping set up.
Thank you to Rob Rogers for helping assemble our event team: the photographer and our dj, and helping make the organization as a whole a great success.
Thank you to Sara Hickson, Molly Dieckhaus, Brian Harney, Dana Dubovik and Darren Shaffer for helping in the planning and making registration so smooth.
Thank you to Javier Benzan, Sara Amiro Jones, Dawn Peters, Christina Tramontozzi, Laura Vogel, Laura wilson, Elena Nefadova and Rommel Childress (who traveled all the way from Texas to be here) for coming back to the fold, if only for a moment, to show your support. Your help over the years has mean the world to me and to the organization.
And last, but not least by a long shot, to my husband Patrick Gilroy, for being there to support me and the organization I founded - for helping lug in all the supplies, set up, hand out masks, and most of all, just being there when I needed you.
This event was EVERYTHING I was hoping for and more! It took tons of planning, tons of support, and I could not have hoped for greater success.
Now on to another 10 years! Hope you all will be there for some future great events. (Hint Hint - New Years Eve might follow along the lines of the Ball this year!!
