Young Professionals

The Young Professionals are an volunteer auxiliary group that raises friends and funds for Break the Cycle. The Committee plans and promotes social gatherings to acquaint other young professionals with Break the Cycle’s work through events like Bingo and our annual benefit, Unmasquerade.

To date, the Young Professionals have raised more than $18,000 to benefit Break the Cycle’s life-saving work with youth!
