ABOUT US

A Date 2 Remember is presented by The Columbus Young Professionals Club.

We created the event in order to offer a unique philanthropic activity and had two things in mind:

  1. Benefit two local non-profit organizations
  2. 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.

Columbus Young Professionals Club

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.
