The area’s young professionals will be in holiday mode and networking downtown tonight.

Grand Rapids Young Professionals is hosting its free Holiday Unwind at the Amway Grand Plaza from 5:30-8:30 p.m. The nonprofit is dedicated to professionals ages 21-40.

Gifts, lights and “familiar faces” will help decorate the party for an “evening filled with networking and holiday cheer.”

There will be also light food and a cash bar.

A raffle will benefit a local charity, with two tickets available for $5.

The raffle will feature prizes such as tickets to the Grand Rapids Griffins and Michigan State University basketball, spa packages, gift cards and more.

The event is a way to “kick off the holiday season with friends and co-workers and make lots of new friends too," said Sarah Niemeyer, the nonprofit’s director of social events. "It also gives young professionals the chance to give back to the community.”
