HARRISBURG, Pa. (4/1//2022) – Today, Harrisburg Young Professionals (HYP) announced that two iconic events are back for 2022: Forster Street Cleanup and Home Tour!
Both events were greatly affected by COVID-19 restrictions and limitations and were canceled in 2020 and 2021. Due to the tremendous outpouring of requests from members and non members alike, HYP has made the shift to bring back signature events that fully support the city of Harrisburg. HYP is an organization that prides itself on events and activities that resonate with our membership and speak to the mission of our organization, while providing financial benefit to our programs and services.
Forster Street Cleanup will be in partnership with Tri County Community Action as part of the Great Harrisburg Litter Clean Up on Saturday, April 23, 2022. We are excited to continue to beautify and be proud of the city in which we live, work and play.
Home Tour will be broken up into 2 mini series, with our first tour in Italian Lake on June 18th and second tour in Shipoke on September 17th. Both series will feature homes, local food and drink, businesses and paired with a block party to benefit our Home in the City Program. Our Home in the City Program assists new Harrisburg homebuyers with closing costs.
Directly related to this pivot comes the decision to cancel the long awaited Run for the Roses. Anyone who has registered and paid for a ticket to attend Run for the Roses, will be refunded. HYP encourages those who planned to attend our event to support and attend our 2022 Home Tour mini-series instead.
We’re excited to focus on the events that result in positive outcomes in the city of Harrisburg and realign us with who we are as an organization.
