YOUNGSTOWN — The Mahoning Valley Young Professionals will gather for their monthly mixer at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Avalon Downtown, 17 W. Federal St.
The mixer will be in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Youngstown, which is also sponsoring the event. Admission is free and includes pizza and a cash bar.
This month’s mixer also will support Boatsie’s Boxes, a nonprofit dedicated to supporting American troops stationed abroad. Each week, Boatsie’s Boxes ships needed items to the troops.
Those attending the mixer are encouraged to bring items such as air fresheners, wet wipes, powdered energy drinks, stationery, candy, snacks and socks in brown, white or black for shipment.
