Those millennials really know how to close down the summer in style. A passel of Lee Park Junior Conservancy (LPJC) peeps were at the Hotel ZaZa on Wednesday, September 7, to bid a fond farewell to the warm season. But along with the partying by the pretty peeps, there was news about the upcoming year for the Conservancy. Here’s a report from the field:
Last night the Lee Park Junior Conservancy hosted an End of Summer Poolside Party at Hotel ZaZa. Over 100 young professionals attended, with many new faces in the crowd. The event is a way for LPJC friends to gather and visit about their summer, hear updates from the Conservancy and meet others who are interested in learning more about the organization. Hotel ZaZa’s Riley Nail provided an assortment of delicious summery appetizers and donated 10% of bar sales back to the group.
The LPJC hosts many social events, but is dialing up service opportunities and business networking with other main Conservancy members this year. Several guests decided to join the JC, including 2010 “The Bachelor” Jake Pavelka.
But it wasn’t all fun and membership driving. There was news! The announcement of the LPJC’s new board of directors, who include President Lauren Ives, Vice President Anne DeFilillpo, Secretary Tiffany George, Treasurer Sean March, Membership Co-Chairs Francesco Mainetti and Ryan Kirkham, Service Chair Sarah Jones, Underwriting Co-Chair Joe Atkins and Brock Bridges, Volunteer Chair Petrushka Dickinson, PR Chair Nicole Jacobsen and Events Chair Dominique Patton.
And speaking of LPJC events, plans were also announced about the 9th Annual Day at the Races. Co-Chairs Camille Cain and Tyler Stevens will be in charge of the signature event on Saturday, May 6, that will take place at Lee Park with loads of beauties and beaus in their finest “classic Kentucky Derby chic” attire. And, yes, the 143th Run for the Roses will be on the big screen.
