With each new year, CSC’s Young Leadership Council (YLC) strengthens its resolve to help make a difference in the lives of those touched by cancer. 2012 brings with it a fresh Board of Directors, whose enthusiasm for CSC’s mission is unparalleled.
This vibrant group of young professionals represents a new generation of leaders who are advancing the cause of social and emotional support for people living with cancer by raising awareness and organizing philanthropic initiatives to benefit CSC. Since YLC’s inaugural event in 2005, it has successfully raised over $850,000, and brought CSC’s mission to hundreds of new friends. Led by Chair, Michael Rocks, and Vice-Chair, Liz McGovern, the group is working to energize New York City’s young professional community around this mission.
The YLC is already filling its 2012 calendar with a Comedy Night planned for this summer and its annual Red Ball set to occur on Friday evening, October 19th, at Crimson, in New York City. Please save the date for this exciting event!
