On Wednesday, October 30th, representatives from United Way of New York City and its Young Leaders Council (YLC) attended a Halloween gathering hosted by IvyConnect at the DL Rooftop in Manhattan.
During a fun evening rife with creative costumes, music, members from the YLC spread the word about United Way among the IvyConnect crowd and championed our mission to advocate for vulnerable New Yorkers.
Similar to the YLC, IvyConnect is a community of young professionals in New York City that aims to bring diverse aspiring leaders together to collaborate during networking, social, and community-based events.
Aligning with this like-minded group was a fantastic opportunity for the YLC to expand our network of young leaders here in New York and connect individually with those passionate about making a difference in our community.
A big thank you to the YLC’s Danica Murphy and the IvyConnect leadership team for your help in joining our two groups!
