We created the event in order to offer a unique philanthropic activity and had two things in mind:
- Benefit two local non-profit organizations
- Engage our young professional members in Central Ohio
In 2007, A Date 2 Remember was born!
It was a phenomenal success and has now grown to become the city’s largest social fundraiser for young professionals.
Over 20,000 young professionals in Central Ohio are registered members of the CYP Club. We hold the distinction as the #1 largest YP membership organization in the United States.
We raised $15,000, which we donated to The Miracle League and United Cerebral Palsy of Central Ohio.
Then, in 2009, we were voted 2nd best charity event by Columbus CEO Magazine – just behind the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
We raised more than $20,000 for A Kid Again and Junior Achievement of Central Ohio.
D2R was recognized as the ‘Best Charity Event in Central Ohio’ by Columbus CEO Magazine.
Hosted nearly 1,000 attendees.
Raised $40,000 for A Kid Again and Flying Horse Farms.
We took a year off in 2015 to celebrate the CYP Club’s Ten-Year Anniversary.
