They came, they saw, they conquered in a scavenger hunt around downtown State College last night!
The team is off to a solid 4-2 start to the season and will look to continue its winning ways next Monday (June 19th) at Spring Creek Park at 6:30.
We're thrilled to be stopping at Wigle Distillery! In the meantime, here's 5 Thing to Know About Wigle Bourbon from Zagat.com
The brewpub is located at 3525 Liberty Avenue in the Lawrenceville neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The church building was originally built in 1902, and had been used as a church until 1993. Its doors opened as The Church Brew Works on August 1, 1996, after the building underwent an extensive renovation, necessitated by years of lying dormant after being officially deconsecrated by the Diocese of Pittsburgh in 1993.
As of September 2007, three flagship brews are locally distributed: Celestial Gold (light lager), Pipe Organ Pale Ale (English pale ale), and Pious Monk Dunkel (Munich-style dark lager). The in-house selection is rounded out by a rotating Stout, four seasonals or specialties, and one varying cask-conditioned ale. Also available are Millennium Trippel, a Belgian Tripel (in champagne bottles and 5L minikegs) and Cherry Quadzilla, a Belgian Quadrupel (champagne bottles only).

Thank you SCYPers for joining us for food, drink, and laughter. We heard from Travis Lesser on the Light Up State College Initiative happening this Saturday. Drop by Schlow Library or other local businesses to get your very own ice luminary tools.
We also attempted a goal of 230 Valentines for the patients of Hearthside (a local long-term care facility in State College) and enjoyed sending a little love their way!
We had a great turn out at last night's Financial Planning 101 personal development session! Thanks Amy for a great introduction to the ins and outs of financial planning!
If you weren't able to make it, Amy is offering complimentary consultations to anyone who is interested! She assured us last night that it is a myth that you need to have a certain amount of money saved in order to work with a financial advisor.
To take advantage of this offer, contact Amy Sanor at firstname.lastname@example.org or 814-808-4750 ext. 2. Just mention that you heard about the offer through SCYP!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Toys for Tots bucket brigade. A few groups did not show up, and Gene was tremendously grateful for the SCYP volunteers!! We helped move TWO rooms filled with toys that will bring joy to children in our community during the holiday season.
Thanks to all our members who attended Sips last night! After drumming up interest for the Toys for Tots Tuesday, December 20th. While SCYPers are welcome to attend any of the public wrapping sessions, Toys For Tots has expressed that the greatest need for our volunteers is for the Bucket Brigade. The time commitment should be no longer than a couple of hours. We are meeting at the Room 206.

At the semi-annual board meeting, SCYP's Board of Directors leads members in a discussion and elects new members to the board.
WPSU's "stories" segment, Reasons to Stay, focuses on life in State College and why so many people here, including young pros, are faced with a tough decision -- stay, or go?
So far, 2016 has been amazing for the State College Young Pros! Membership is up and we're trying out some great new events.
As we finish up our best year yet, we look to our membership for the future.
Many thanks to our plungers, spotters, and supporters - with your help, the State College Young Professionals group raised over $3,700 for the YMCA of Centre Country's Backpack and Open Doors programs!
We also won the award for most money raised as a group! Our costume wasn't a winner this year, but we still think it was pretty sweet.
