CAYP’s December 2011 Holiday Event at Pearl Street Pub

Pearl Street PubPearl Street Pub and Dirty Martini Lounge

Take downtown Albany’s most popular spot, the Capital Region’s finest young professionals, plus Albany Alive’s signature red carpet, and you have an event that surely trumped your office holiday party. CAYP’s Holiday Celebration was held at The Pearl Street Pub and Dirty Martini Lounge and brought in a crowd of over 125 attendees.

In the spirit of giving, CAYP’s special holiday promotion offered free entrance into the event (a $25 value) for anyone who purchased an annual membership or renewed their current one. This resulted in CAYP celebrating 43 new members! That’s 43 new and financially-savvy members, since this opportunity was a steal.

In between music and tortellini, President Theresa Petrone announced the two winners of our monthly business card drawing, who got to go home with 2 tickets to the Last Night Gala to benefit St. Peter’s Hospital. She then went on to share that longtime member of CAYP Board of Directors, Danielle Valenti, will be stepping down to concentrate on her new position at Albany based readMedia.
