Millennial Professional Group of Rhode Island Kicks Off First Ever ‘Millennial Week’ with Multiple Events in Pawtucket

Beginning on Monday, April 11th, Millennial Professional Group of Rhode Island (MPGRI) will be launching their first ever “Millennial Week” with several events slated to take place in the City of Pawtucket.

MPGRI kicks off the week at Break Time Bowl and Bar located at 999 Main Street, Suite #1330 at Pawtucket’s Hope Artiste Village. The event coincides with Pawtucket City Councilor At-Large Sandra Cano’s “Crash Pawtucket” initiative aimed at spurring the local economy by spotlighting local Pawtucket businesses.

After events in neighboring communities each day this week, MPGRI will return to Pawtucket for a tour of McCoy Stadium. As part of the tour, MPGRI will get to do some indoor hitting and pitching in McCoy’s batting cages while networking with team officials while the Pawtucket Red Sox are on the road in Buffalo.

“The Pawtucket Red Sox and McCoy stadium are as Rhode Island as coffee milk and hot wieners and an important part of our state’s proud cultural history,” stated Co-Founder and President of MPGRI. I want to acknowledge and thank the City of Pawtucket and the PawSox organization for giving Millenial Professional Group of Rhode Island the opportunity to intimately experience this historic ballpark and foster that sense of pride and historical appreciation amongst Millennials,” continued Escobar.

“On behalf of the City of Pawtucket, I want to welcome MPGRI to our community,” said Mayor Grebien. “Pawtucket has a lot to offer the younger generation and it is my sincere hope that MPGRI will continue to come back to the City regularly and even consider a more permanent role here as we continue to make Pawtucket more appealing to millennials,” said the Mayor.
