Blossom Philadelphia’s Young Leadership Board (YLB) is a way for young professionals in the Philadelphia area to become more involved in United Cerebral Palsy and impact the lives of others. The goal of the YLB is to enhance Blossom Philadelphia’s current fundraising events by tapping into new volunteer and sponsorship resources. The primary fundraising event of the YLB is the popular Sips ‘N Sites Scavenger Hunt, which is held annually in the early fall. The YLB directs all aspects of the Hunt, including planning, sponsorship and marketing. Other social events are held throughout the year in order to increase awareness of Blossom Philadelphia’s goals and objectives, as well as to motivate other young professionals to get more involved.
The primary philanthropic event of the YLB is the annual Client Picnic held in the spring. Members of the YLB volunteer for the day to work with the Blossom Philadelphia staff at the main campus to provide the clients with a day filled with fun activities.
