2018 NY-YIP Holiday Gathering

Scenes from the event

Nearly 60 insurance producers attended the New York Young Insurance Professionals last networking event of the year on Dec. 4, at the Black Forest Brew Haus in Farmingdale, New York.

This year, NY-YIP partnered with Jocelyn’s Operation Holiday Spirit, an organization that provides gifts for underprivileged children. Those who attended the NY-YIP Holiday Gathering picked up a child’s Christmas letter and brought an unwrapped toy to be donated to the charity. In addition to the gifts, this year’s event raised nearly $200 for the charity.

We’d like to thank Bartow Insurance, Burns & Wilcox, CMS LLC, The Main Street America Group and Western World for their generous sponsorship of this event.
