    Join YNPN Triangle NC for a special evening of socializing and education (whiskey education that is).

The evening will conclude with a tour of Mystic Farm and a tasting of their handmade small batch whiskey offerings. 

    Stop by after work and get your weekend started with us, all for a great cause! Proceeds from the event will benefit YNPN Triangle NC’s mission of cultivating and supporting young nonprofit professionals in the Triangle.
