Join us on January 31st for Harrisburg Young Professionals’ 26th Annual Meeting and Awards Night at the Strawberry Square. We’re delighted to have the opportunity to celebrate the year that was and the year that will be with a special message from this year’s president, Iqbal Singh and guest speaker Corrie Lingenfelter.

“Chef Corrie” is not your typical chef; she’s a culinary genius with a heart as generous as her flavors are exquisite. As a mastermind in the kitchen and the Executive Director of Downtown Daily Bread, Chef Corrie blends her passion for fine cuisine with a commitment to serving the community.

Corrie, a professionally trained chef, began her culinary journey at The Omni Bedford Spring Resort & Spa. Her professional trajectory includes noteworthy engagements with elite resorts and renowned celebrities. Throughout her career, Chef Corrie has taken her culinary expertise a step further, venturing into the creation and management of non- profit kitchens, pantries, and programs. Her mission is to foster food accessibility and diversity in low-income communities through these initiatives.

Additionally, in her role as the Executive Director at Downtown Daily Bread (DDB), she’s a philanthropist on a mission to create a world where no one goes hungry, and every meal is a celebration of compassion. DDB is dedicated to providing essential services for the unsheltered and hungry in the local community of Harrisburg, Pa.

Light appetizers and refreshments will be provided prior to the program and awards. The event is open to members and non-members. While there is no cost to attend, we welcome donations to HYP to help fund our events, programming and further our mission. Please visit our PayPal page to make a donation.

We will be presenting awards for Business of the Year, Project of the Year, and Community Engagement. Additionally, we will award our Female & Male Athlete and Member of the Year which were voted on by their peers.
