Detroit Young Professional’s 2010 Vanguard Awards
The Detroit Young Professionals (DYP) brought together movers and shakers from across Southeast Michigan Thursday night at the MotorCity Casino's Amnesia to honor 10 remarkable innovators for its second annual Vanguard Awards.
Hosted by WDIV-TV (Channel 4)'s morning anchor Rhonda Walker, a cool collection of friends, family and supporters flocked to the celebration for heart-warming stories, inspiring actions and networking opportunities. ...And, perhaps, a drink or two, too.
Before the big night, Metromix asked the 10 Vanguard Award winners more about the city, how'd they like to engage the community and what earning this honor meant to them. For more on their thoughts, click here: DYP Vanguard.
