Join GRYP for our Get Involved Expo and April Unwind at San Chez Bistro on the 3rd floor. It will take
place Thursday, April 26th from 5:30 –8:30 pm. At the Get Involved Expo, there will be many different
non-profit organizations available to hand out information and talk about their volunteer opportunities.
Attendees will learn about the different organizations' goals, mission, membership, or leadership opportunities.
Our networking activity will be Bingo. Each bingo card has a list of participating organizations. You must visit the display tables to get a stamp from each organization. When you get five stamps in a row, you can be entered into a drawing to win a great prize. This is a great way to meet people and get to know the organizations too.
It's always good to bring plenty of business cards to hand out; as you will meet plenty of new people. No need to RSVP. We'll see you at San Chez Bistro on Thursday, April 26th.
