Philadelphia Futures and Steppingstone Scholars host first-ever Alumni Happy Hour
On Tuesday, October 25, 2022, alumni from Philadelphia Futures and Steppingstone Scholars were invited to come together for the first time since announcing the merger. Thirty-six alumni from Philadelphia Futures, Steppingstone Scholars, and White-Williams Scholars attended the event, which took place on the beautiful rooftop lounge of the organizations’ office located at 123 South Broad Street.
In addition to the breathtaking views, the event offered alumni the opportunity to reconnect with classmates, network with staff, and hear from Co-Presidents Sara Woods and Sean Vereen who talked about the importance of alumni in the new organization.
“We were thrilled to welcome the Philadelphia Futures and Steppingstone Scholars alumni to our first Alumni Happy Hour,” said Shari Cumberbatch, Director of Volunteer and Alumni Engagement. “At PFSS, we are dedicated to continuing to grow our alumni community, and we are grateful to those that came out to share their experiences with the organizations and their successes since graduating. We look forward to growing and strengthening this network of incredible individuals.”
As the evening concluded, many members of the PFSS alumni community took advantage of the opportunity to take a tour of the new office space and left feeling excited about the merger and ready to volunteer.
