Can you believe it’s been 10 years? We’ve shared coffee with the most successful business and community leaders, hiked mountains, volunteered and almost shut down several bars just by networking in masses. For our past members, current PICKsters and friends we have yet to meet, your dedication to PICK is EVERYTHING! Whether you know it or not, you’ve helped us grow and become a thriving organization, one event at a time, 10 years in a row. So let’s celebrate, by getting fancy, pouring some bubbly and toasting some of the finest individuals in Riverside, for a night you’ll never forget.
Soak in the city lights atop City Hall for a perfect mixture of young and wise professionals, sprinkled with a few special guests, that’ll create a fun (and bubbly) party to celebrate our city's young professionals who are making a BIG… IMPACT!
