Since joining Volunteers of America Northern California & Northern Nevada, Nicole Tallon has searched for her tribe. The 20-something, tasked by AmeriCorps VISTA with getting word out about VOA’s programs for the poor and underrepresented, wants to meet other young adults who are passionate about improving the world.
So she and colleague Eric Ratinoff had an idea: Invite them for a drink.
On Thursday, April 3, the VOA will hold its inaugural #Network4Cause event at Tequila Museo Mayahuel on K Street. It’s a free social-media mixer for Sacramento’s young professional crowd, and Tallon says the idea is to get local millennials meeting and tweeting about the causes that are important to them.
People can register to attend online at Eventbrite and elsewhere, though the mixer is currently listed as “sold out.” It starts at 5:30 p.m., and promises free grub and giveaways.
