Events

Since its inception in June of 2004, a primary mission of the Young Professionals of Fond du Lac is to sponsor monthly events that allow its members opportunities to network in both social and professional settings. Members can then have an opportunity to invite guests and learn more about the mission and goals of YPF.

GET INVOLVED!

Attending YPF events is a great way to find out what YPF is all about. You will meet monthly with collegues and friends while continuing to expand and diversify your network. Come see what the excitement is all about!

About this Event

The Power of the Purse is our largest annual event and attracts 400 attendees. During the 2020 luncheon, we will feature keynote speaker Mike Domitrz of Milwaukee’s Center for Respect, honor a local woman with our annual Women of Achievement Award and give a report to the community on our previous year’s accomplishments. Proceeds from the event specifically support our efforts to educate, empower and inspire women and girls through grant-making, focused initiatives and advocacy efforts.

Although we historically feature a woman as keynote, this year’s event speaker fits with the direction of our Fond du Lac Says No More initiative in striving to engage more men and boys in ending violence against women and children. Mike founded The Date Safe Project (now The Center for Respect) in Milwaukee and conducts thousands of training sessions annually.
