Caroline C

Hank Host in New York, NY
Caroline has become “queen of the Hank UWS coffee chats”. She hosts the Le Pain Quotidien group most Tuesdays, and the conversation is always percolating.

Caroline originally joined Hank to play pickleball and find a few friends to take a walk with or go to a concert. But, she found out that hosting an activity that’s become a weekly get-together that members love has been the most rewarding.

Susie F

Hank Host in Los Angeles, CA
Susie was one of the first members to join Hank in Los Angeles. Her curiosity and love of everything LA has to offer led to her hosting wine tasting, private art house tours, and lawn tennis. From just sharing a cup of coffee to creating something a little off the beaten path, hosting has made sharing the best of her city with others a real gift.

Deborah S

Hank Host in Bergen County, NJ
Pancakes, Crepes and Waffles Day, Trivia Nites, Monthly Luncheons, and more. Deborah has found “the secret sauce” when it comes to finding simple, fun activities that Hank members are clamoring for. And when she posts an activity, they will come.

Deborah is also a great example of a host that is happy to work with other members to help ensure their activities are always successful.
