On Thursday, September 18, nextgen, the young professionals group of Chapman Partnership, will host Night in the FRC, a game night with the children and families living in Chapman Partnership's Family Resource Center.
A total of 60 to 70 children are expected to take on the young professionals of nextgen in some friendly competition, said Amy Senat, Development and Marketing Specialist at Chapman Partnership. Night in the FRC is one of nextgen's regular events, typically hosted every few months.
