PULSEations: the place to be this Friday!


If you know me well, you know I'm a big fan of PULSE (Pittsburgh Urban Leadership Service Experience).

I've talked about PULSE numerous times on the blog—let me refresh your memory: 

  • I shared my story a few years ago about my experience in the program. 
  • You helped me raise $3001 for PULSE when I ran my first ever 5.5 miles in the Pittsburgh Marathon Relay. 
  • I've interviewed several PULSE alumni including Amanda,  Laura, and Stephan. 

And the list goes on ... 

We're celebrating the great work of PULSE this Friday at one of my favorite parties of the year: PULSEations! 

So why would you want to join for this super fun extravaganza? 

There's going to be great food, music, and over 80 auction items. We're expecting a packed house of PULSE supporters and friends, and you will have a chance to meet this year's PULSE participants. 

You can get more details (and see who else is going) on the Facebook Event and you can also purchase tickets on the PULSE website. 


And now for the bonus ...  I've got two tickets ($70 value) to share with one lucky Yinzpiration reader!
