On Saturday, December 14th, the region’s up-and-coming leaders and rising stars gathered at the inaugural Pattison Leader Ball in the Red and Clover Rooms at the Hyatt at the Bellevue. The Pattison Leader Ball brought together civically engaged young professionals to network and engage in conversations about the state of Pennsylvania policy and politics. It was held on the same night that Pennsylvania’s elected and selected officials and power brokers shared their visions of the future at the Pennsylvania Society Annual Dinner in New York City at the Waldorf Hotel.

The Pattison Leader Ball is named for Pennsylvania's two youngest governors: Robert Pattison of Philadelphia, who was 32 when elected in 1882, and George M. Leader of York County, who was 36 when elected in 1954. Gov. Leader's 30-something grandson, George M. Leader IV, spoke at the three-hour cocktail-then-dance party, on how important it is that young people get involved in their communities for the betterment of society. With him is Danielle Kroon.

"We're a bridge between a lot of neighboring cities, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and New York, and it would benefit them to come and see what York has to offer."
