A few breast cancer facts:

TYP Austin – August Event | Networking

8 09 2010

Max’s Wine Dive was the perfect place for Austin’s TYP, Texas Young Professionals, networking event.  It was such a great venue!  We had our own private event room downstairs which gave us and our partnering organization Austin HYP, Habitat Young Professionals, plenty of space to mix and mingle.  We don’t usually pair up with other organizations for our events but I think it was a great idea!  It really allowed everyone involved to expand their social and professional circles.  It also gave HYP a chance to tell us about their upcoming event, Urban Ranch Round-Up!  Tickets are only $25.  There will be live music, great food, and bingo!   Make sure to check it out!
