Our Events

Food For Families Initiative – Each summer, YPFC gives back to families and individuals in need through its Food For Families program. Money raised through event sponsorships and the YPFC Community Fund at the Fairfield County Foundation is used to purchase local food items from Keller Market House and the Lancaster Farmers Market, which is then donated to area non-profit organizations. Past recipients include The Lighthouse Domestic Violence Shelter, Meals On Wheels of Fairfield County, and The Rutherford House.

Happy Hours – Kick back, relax, connect with other Young Professionals, learn more about YPFC and help out great causes along the way at some of Central Ohio’s best breweries and wineries

Lunch & Learns – Lunch & Learns provide an opportunity for YPs to network and gain new knowledge in areas important to their professional growth.

Power Breakfasts – Rise and Shine! These Power Breakfasts are a great way to start any morning. Hear from community leaders, business professionals, and even past members of YPFC about their careers while networking with your fellow YPs.

Volunteer Showcase – What better way to learn how to get involved with our community than to hear from the non-profits themselves! Join us for breakfast at various locations across Fairfield County and hear from community organizations looking for YPs to volunteer for events, initiatives, and more.
