The young professional spinoff of Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King County will host their first-ever social happy hour in Ballard next Thursday evening.
Habitat Young Professionals, a volunteer-based organization affiliated with the non-profit that focuses on providing affordable housing, will be at Skillet Diner (2034 NW 56th St) from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on June 19. Historically, the group has hosted their monthly happy hours Downtown or in South Lake Union, but members have requested that the events branch out to other neighborhoods.
Raffle prizes at this month’s happy hour include 4-packs of Hillard’s Beer and Habitat swag. Those who make a donation or bring a friend can earn extra raffle tickets.
Those attending are asked to adhere to a certain level of decorum, as noted on the group’s event page.
Please note that we are a volunteer group of young professionals interested in doing good for the community and helping others. We are not a “meet-market”, and in-fact discourage number trollers from attending. If any attendee displays inappropriate behavior, makes inappropriate advancements toward, or harasses other attendees, s/he will be escorted off the premises immediately. If you experience this type of behavior, please come tell us immediately so that we can address the situation before anyone else is made uncomfortable. Thank you in advance for helping us create a safe and inviting event. Be smart, be safe, be respectful (and please drink responsibly!).
