“The richest people in the world look for and build networks. Everyone else looks for work.” – Robert Kiyosaki
The DRC YP Networking Committee provided a great opportunity to act on this advice and build awareness of a local health initiative at the “YP Happy Hour for National Wear Red Day” held at Eastwood’s Bar and Grill in Uptown on February 2. National Wear Red Day raises awareness and funding for the fight against heart disease and stroke for women. Many attendees wore red to the event to recognize and increase heart awareness during February, which is American Heart Month. The event was generously sponsored by Baylor Heart and Vascular Hospital in Dallas.
Katelyn Brown, exercise physiologist from the Cardiac Rehabilitation department of Baylor Heart and Vascular Hospital, offered fitness tests and asked heart-related trivia questions to event attendees, generating friendly competition amongst attendees.
More than 100 young professionals across various industries enjoyed the networking opportunity in a run and relaxed environment. In addition to drinks and appetizers, prizes were raffled off, including 4 tickets to the Nasher Art & Sculpture Center, a goodie bag from the American Heart Association, and tickets to an FC Dallas game.
Eastwood’s event space offered plenty of room for attendees to interact while enjoying great appetizers and absolutely phenomenal service. DRC YP and the YP Networking Committee look forward to providing our members with many more opportunities in 2017 to better network and interact with other young professionals in the Dallas area.
