YPN members and guests gathered at Center City hot-spot, the American Pub, at YPN’s recent networking event to hear remarks from Tasty Baking Company CEO & 2010 GPCC William Penn Award recipient, Charlie Pizzi, and to celebrate the Holiday Season. Mr. Pizzi provided insights into his leadership style, feeling of civic responsibility and outlook on the Philadelphia business climate generating a lively question and answer session. Mr. Pizzi also is the Deputy Chair of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia.

Members had also been asked to bring a toy for the annual McClure Elementary School Holiday Toy Drive. This request was well heard and the response overwhelmingly generous. Toys were delivered the following day and received enthusiastically by McClure Elementary Vice-Principal Randy Davila. Thank you to those who participated in the Toy Drive and other McClure events through out the year. These efforts provide an ongoing gift to the McClure Community.

Happy & Healthy Holiday Wishes to all YPN Members, looking forward to a Prosperous & Fun 2010 ahead. See you on January 13th at the Loews Hotel, as we welcome Philadelphia District Attorney, Seth Williams.
