“In the past year, Vogel Alcove has accomplished amazing goals for the children we serve each day, but one of our most exciting accomplishments was the creation of our Flight YPO,” said Vogel Alcove’s President and CEO Karen Hughes. “We have attracted a passionate group of young people who are taking significant strides to raise awareness and fundraise for our organization. Not only is Flight a networking and service YPO, but it is building future leaders of Vogel Alcove and the community.”

Flight YPO’s mission is to engage young professionals, create awareness in the community for the plight of homeless children, raise funds for Vogel Alcove and grow future leaders. In doing so, members enjoy networking happy hours once a month, volunteer service events; planning, executing and participating in fundraising events such as the Flight of the Alcove Urban Race and more. Fundraising for the inaugural gala event has been highly successful.

“Helping to create Flight has been an incredible experience. In this organization we have built genuine relationships in addition to making beneficial business contacts, all while serving the community. At the start we set lofty goals and I am proud of what we have been able to accomplish,” said Mary Lyons, co-president of Flight YPO. “I’m thrilled we are hosting this gala and am excited to share the mission of Fight YPO and Vogel Alcove with the community.” Flight YPO is proud to partner with numerous sponsors and affiliate partners including: Adhesives Plus Inc., McKool Smith, National Life Group, O2Works, Personal Economics Groups, Renascent Constructors LLC, and ScrapSource.
