The event was generously sponsored by GEICO and event partners included GovLoop, Runin’ Out and DC Connect. The party was held at the Gryphon, located in Dupont Circle of Washington DC, and was well-attended by over 200 young professionals. The event opened with human bingo, an icebreaker where attendees networked with fellow attendees to fulfill bingo-box descriptions. Complimentary drink tickets were provided as well as hors d’oeuvres. Virginia Hill, YGL National president, greeted the crowd and raffled off prizes provided by GEICO. New year’s-themed decorations and giveaways galore provided by GEICO and our partners lit up the venue and contributed to the lively atmosphere.
