YPD's Kickoff, the largest event of the year for post-college Yids

Haven't made plans for Saturday yet? Made lame plans that you need an excuse to get out of? YPD's kickoff is this weekend!

The Young Professionals Division of the Federation knows how to throw a party.

Last year, I had the opportunity to check it out (full disclosure, I got Miller to donate a boat load of beer)and ended up being impressed by the attendance.

In fact, I don't think I've been to a better attended social event with as many Yids since. Which is why I'm pretty excited for the party this year.


“YPD Takes You Around the World” to launch its 2009 Jewish Federation Campaign with an international Jewish journey on Saturday, January 31, 8 to 11 p.m., at the Coronado Ballroom, 3701 Lindell. Parking is $3 and available at the Scottish Rite Lot (Spring @ Lindell).

The evening will feature food stations of assorted “global” appetizers, desserts and drinks. There will be karaoke, belly dancers, Latin dancers and Israeli dancers. In addition, the event will showcase where Federation dollars go to help in St. Louis and around the world.

Admission is $36 online and $40 at the door. There will be takeaway gifts and a chance to win great raffle prizes.
