A Word from Our Young Friends Chairpersons:

“Joining the FPS Young Friends Society has allowed me to connect with fellow young professionals in my area while also giving back to For Pete’s Sake. The Society offers many great opportunities to both network & volunteer with like-minded individuals, which allows us to serve the greater mission of For Pete’s Sake. I joined the FPS Young Friends Society because I saw it as a great way for me to connect with other young professionals in my area who are also passionate about the For Pete’s Sake mission.” – Caroline Duffy, Conner Strong & Buckellew

“When I first came across For Pete’s Sake, I immediately fell in love with the mission. Being able to provide a “break from cancer” for those families facing that challenge and give them a real, life-changing experience. I wanted to find a way to be more involved and that opportunity presented itself through the FPS Young Friends society. Along with other professionals, ages 21-35, we hope to spread the mission of For Pete’s Sake to those in the next generation with our philanthropy driven mindset.” – Frank Fanto, Essent
