The Houston Young Professionals Endeavor (HYPE) is having their fantastic book drive at the Houston Zoo this year! You are encouraged to bring books for needy children across Houston.
Donations will be accepted throughout November, culminating in their wonderful HYPE for the Holidays event on December 2nd from 5:30pm to 8pm. You will be able to bring by donations of either unwrapped books or monetary gifts to the event, then spend your time networking and socializing with other young professionals from your city. There will be appetizers offered, as well as a cash bar in the Natural Encounters building.
You’ll get the opportunity to grow your network of professionals in your field, while helping out the organization Early Matters, who does wonders for the education of young children in Houston, allowing them learning opportunities they otherwise may not have had.
Enjoy a stroll through the Winter Wonderland of Zoo Lights 2015, a gorgeous lighting set up throughout the zoo that illuminates the walkways and turns the Houston Zoo in to a beautiful holiday spectacle. Both Members and Non-members are invited to the event, so be sure to bring all of your friends and do as much as you can for Early Matters.
You can register online for the HYPE for the Holidays event and simply make an account with the Greater Houston Project, it’ll easily walk you through registration.
