Energy Galore: ELS Mixer Wrap-Up!

May 16, 2024

Stroudsburg, PA- This week we gathered professionals from various backgrounds, all coming together with one shared goal – to make a meaningful impact in our community. That’s the atmosphere we created at the Emerging Leaders Society Spring Recruitment Mixer. Thanks to the support from Shawnee Craft Brewery, we had a fantastic evening of networking, building connections, and engaging in purposeful conversations.

Sponsored by Shawnee Craft Brewery

But what’s a mixer without a little something to sip on? We were honored to have Shawnee Craft Brewery as our sponsor for the evening, providing delicious brews & pizza to fuel our conversations and connections. And as if that wasn’t enough, we were treated to a special presentation and tour by none other than Michael Albert, a dear friend and supporter of Pocono Mountains United Way. A special congratulations to him and the team for celebrating 15 years!
