In today’s world more and more young people are emerging as executives and professionals with valuable influence and power. But with great power comes great responsibility, a fact that Susan G. Komen for the Cure is well aware of, which is why they set up the Komen Greater NYC’s Young Professionals Committee, or YPC, to help involve the new professional generation in charity and philanthropy, guiding them to use their power to do good from the very beginning to the very end of their careers.
Each year the YPC hosts Pink Rocks the Rock, a summer festivity and kick-off event for the September Komen Greater NYC Race for the Cure. This year is the third annual Pink Rocks the Rock event and it will be held at the Rink Bar in Rockefeller Center (a venue generously donated by the Patina Group, which runs locations such as the Rink Bar, the Rock Center Café and the Sea Grill) on July 10. “The space is a favorite of young professionals in midtown Manhattan, who we hope will join us,” said Dawn Reinholtz, a YPC executive committee member.
Through this event, YPC hopes to engage up and coming professionals in the fight against breast cancer, and acquire their support in locating new fundraising methods with grassroots breast health programs which serve underprivileged residents in the New York City, Long Island, Westchester and Rockland counties area. They also hope to continue raising awareness on breast cancer throughout these areas and to garner more support and more members for the YPC Komen Greater NYC Race for the Cure team.
The after-work event will consist of a three-hour cocktail party, hors d’oeuvres and live music by one of the nation’s most coveted DJ’s, Jason Fioto. It will be a fabulous opportunity to reach out to other professionals and network, enjoy the amazing view of the city and join forces with others to ensure that we will be able to see a world without breast cancer sooner rather than later.
