Volunteer with your Mentor!

On October 10th, join the AWNY Young Execs committee to volunteer at the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer- it's a unique activity to experience with your mentor/mentee, plus a great way to get to know your fellow AWNY members. This will be the 3rd consecutive year of our support squad, and every time we've found it to be inspirational to cheer on the walkers, who have all been touched by cancer in different ways, as well as a lot of fun to see new and familiar AWNY ladies in a different kind of setting. All while wearing pink, of course! Details are below- don't forget to check out the blog for pictures, updates and more info.


What: AWNY cheering on Avon walkers

When: Sat, Oct 10th from 12 - 3:30 pm
Group brunch afterward. Venue TBD.

Where: Stuyvesant Square
2nd Ave between 15th & 16th Street

Who: AWNY members & non-members. All are welcome!
