Allegany County Young Professionals Slated to Host Annual Holiday Party on December 12

ALFRED – After a well-attended Mentor Mixer event in September, Allegany County’s Young Professional Group will host their annual Holiday Party at Alfred University’s Howell Hall on Thursday, December 12, from 6 – 8 p.m.

As the second and final large-scale social event of the fall 2019 schedule, organizers are hopeful for a sizeable turnout at this festive annual gathering.

“This past September’s Mentor Mixer event was held in partnership with Leadership Allegany and we were pleased with how many new people we were able to reach through that partnership,” said Angela McKay, Assistant Director of Economic Development at Allegany County, the office that provides support to the Allegany County Young Professionals Group.  “In this final event of 2019, and our first event in Alfred, we hope that those new folks will come out again to join us for what is sure to be a fun evening.”

Young Professionals, entrepreneurs, and mentors are all invited to attend and dress festively in their favorite ugly Christmas sweater.  Attendees will enjoy food and beverages, courtesy of Alfred University, door-prizes including gift cards for local shopping and dining experiences, and networking with various community leaders.

Mentors and young professionals who are interested in attending can either RSVP online, or by contacting Angela McKay by phone at 585-268-7447 or by email at
