Mingling & Merriment: The Ninth Annual New and Young Professionals Holiday Party

A crowd of 180 new and young professionals celebrated the season in style at the ninth annual Mingling & Merriment holiday party at the Society Room of Hartford on December 8. The flagship event featured networking, a fun “photo booth” and formal company photos, appetizers, wine and beer tastings, a baked potato bar, a pasta station, a carving station, and even a doughnut hole bar with dipping sauces and toppings for dessert. To top off the evening, each attendee went home with a gourmet caramel-and-chocolate covered apple or pretzel rods.

This year, guests tipped their wine servers - members of the New and Young Professionals (NYP) Cabinet - for a great cause: Button Up Connecticut, an organization that distributes new and gently used coats to residents in need all across Connecticut.

NYP Cabinet Chair Katherine McNair also presented awards to the CTCPA 2016 New and Young Professionals to Watch: Sarah Stover of Edwin R. Muenzner, CPA and Three Rivers Community College, Mindyleigh Vail of Nicola, Yester & Company, and Kenneth Healy of Diversified Financial Solutions.
