Group Lunch

Group Lunch

Join us for Hype Group Lunch at Noon the First Tuesday of each month! Hype Group Lunch is a great opportunity to network with other Manhattan young professionals in a small group setting. You will meet at a Chamber member restaurant with 4-5 YPs (randomly assigned) and meet new friends, enjoy meaningful conversation and delicious food.

During Covid restrictions, we have also added a virtual lunch option with the same great concept.

Each month, please sign up by emailing Amber Wilhelm, Hype Staff Liaison, at amber@manhattan.org. Group Lunch assignments and locations are sent by email the week of the event. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to Connect with area young professionals. 

Group Lunch falls under our Connect Pillar. The Connect pillar represents Hype’s efforts to help young professionals make new connections through networking. While networking will inevitably occur at all Hype functions and across multiple Hype pillars, this pillar represents Hype’s interest in creating opportunities explicitly for networking and relationship building.

“I enjoy participating in the Hype Group Lunch events.  These events allow you to meet new people in our community and learn about their work, family, hobbies, etc.  The hour break from work and the small group setting allows for easy conversations, good food and a great time!”
Mike Solida, Evergy

“I have really enjoyed attending the Hype luncheons in person! It has been refreshing to sit across from other Young Professionals and talk about our careers and our lives. It has helped bring a sense of normalcy in these difficult times, highly recommend!”
Megan Gauntt, Legacy Solutions Insurance

“I have attended several Hype group lunches and have thoroughly enjoyed getting the time to network once a month. There are some great people that have some awesome insight on what’s going on in our community right now attending these lunches. I believe groups like these are the best ways to expand our horizons as young business people.” 
Morgan Riat, Foundation Realty
