The Annual YLNI Block Party is one of many events presented by YLNI, a group of young professionals whose aim is to engage the community head-on and make a positive impact on the places in which they live and work. The mission of the 1,000-plus person network is to attract, develop and retain emerging leaders through community, professional and social engagement.

“Our Block Party has become quite the popular summer social event, and we are excited to continue the special tradition,” said Justin Clupper, vice president of social programming for YLNI. “From food, to games, to networking opportunities, there will be a little something for everybody, so we encourage the community to attend.”
