(September 1, 2015) -

Shelly Alvarez, The President of the Texas Young Professional (TYP) San Antonio Chapter announced today that the American Lung Association (ALA) within San Antonio would be the Charity that will benefit from the 3rd annual Gala, which will be held on December 4th at the Eilan Hotel and Spa.

“The Board voted unanimously that TYP would like to continuing to support the work and programs that the American Lung Association are carrying on within San Antonio with improving Lung Health and Clean Air” said Shelly.  “We have supported the American Lung Association twice before at our monthly mixers over the last few years.  TYP hosts monthly networking events for our members to engage and build long-term relationships .These mixers allow us to give back to charity. We host raffles and donate the proceeds to a highlighted charity each month.  . Our mission is to foster relationship-building, career development, entrepreneurial endeavors and civic involvement among young professionals. The TYP vision is to empower our members to be leaders in business and our local communities. Our members are some of the highest quality professionals in the area, such as physicians, lawyers, business owners, IT professionals and many more. There are over 3,500 Members here in San Antonio.”

Everybody is welcome to attend the Black Tie Gala that will take place on Friday December 4th at the Eilan Hotel and Spa located 17103 La Cantera Pkwy, San Antonio, TX 78256.  The fun will begin at 6:00 PM until late, with a silent and live auction plus of course dancing. To make this affordable to young professionals the early bird price would be $100 rising to $125 closer to the event.
