Posted by Zoe Mack on 02/10/2017

Yesterday, EYP’s and their families and friends met at AMF Boulevard Lanes for a night of bowling, pizza and fun! Starting at 5pm, guests enjoyed free pizza and soft drinks while mingling in a designated area of the bowling alley.
At around 5:30 p.m., Chair-Elect Sammy Flores welcomed everyone and then guests broke out into bowling lanes for some friendly competition. We loved seeing new faces and meeting our members’ families and children. It was a great way to kick off the first networking event of 2017!

54 EYP members and guests were in attendance, and the overall event costs tallied in at $934.08. Generous sponsors and hosts make these events possible for our members to attend for free, in comparison to a per person cost of $17.30. We want to thank EYP’s Presenting Sponsor, Mo Anderson and Cindy Cook at Keller Williams Realty, and AMF Boulevard Lanes for hosting EYP at their venue and providing complimentary bowling and shoe rental to our guests.
