Hamilton, NJ – The Robert Wood Johnson (RWJ) Hamilton Young Professionals Group has received the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce’s 2014 Princeton Region Young Professionals Company Choice Award. 

The award was presented to RWJ Hamilton at the 2014 Young Professionals Summit on November 14 at the Conference Center at Mercer County Community College by representatives from HBK CPAs & Consultants. The award is given to an organization or chamber member who demonstrates commitment to provide opportunities for growth, encourages engagement with the community and builds a connection between organizational leadership and young professionals. 

“It is a great honor to be named Princeton Regional Chamber’s first Young Professional Honoree,” said Rachel Holland, chair of the RWJ Hamilton Foundation Yong Professionals Group. “I am privileged to chair a group of dedicated and dynamic young people who truly enjoy serving and helping RWJ Hamilton Foundation and its mission.”


The Young Professionals Group at RWJ Hamilton was founded in 1999. The organization, a subset of the RWJ Hamilton Foundation, brings together people ages 25 to 40  who set themselves apart from others by their willingness to volunteer to support RWJ Hamilton and contribute to the betterment of their local community. 

The Young Professionals Group’s primary project is its $200,000 pledge to the RWJ Hamilton capital campaign for its Pediatric Emergency Center – a state-of-the-art facility that ensures local families have access to emergency care in a setting specially designed for their children’s needs. The YPG hosts three annual events to support this pledge including the All in Good Taste Event, the Toast to the Season business networking event and its Breakfast with Santa holiday family event.  The group also commits to smaller projects and activities together and supports other organizations as a group such as 5K races an walks, chamber dinners and more.
