Subject: $40,000 thank yous!
2 hours after the event. Adrenaline is still running through my veins. I am just starting to realize what we did tonight.
As most of you know, The Elem Entry’s unique spirit is what makes our organization’s young leadership stand out in the non-profit world in NYC. Our power is in the network of 40 young professionals, who come from different backgrounds and industries, all talented, passionate and enthusiastic about the cause. This enthusiasm is what makes events like tonight’s event so successful.
$40,000 thank yous!
