Charleston Young Professionals was established in 2006 by the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce with the mission to “empower and engage emerging talent in the Charleston region.” On Aug. 13, they will celebrate their fifth anniversary — half a decade of professional development as the Lowcountry’s first formal young professionals group. The event will take place on the Club Level in the Johnson Hagood Stadium at the Citadel. “There’s a lot of excitement just to get to this milestone,” says Jill Galmarini, director of CYP. They suggest wearing cocktail attire, and the event will feature a special presentation honoring the founders of the Charleston Young Professionals and music by the Broad Creek Rum Runners and the Delightful Desperados, as well as dinner and cocktails, which are included in the ticket price.
Price: $50/CYP members, $75/non-members
