High school students
Maryland FBLA supports Signature Chefs
Greeting the event's guests and overseeing the silent auction, Maryland FBLA officers and other members were instrumental in the evening's success. The involvement of this group of highly talented and motivated high school students is an excellent example of how the March of Dimes can tap into the youth population to execute successful events.
It wasn't just the officers and members who attended and volunteered at the event. Maryland FBLA's State Officer Advisor, Janice Icenhower; Vice Chairman of the Maryland FBLA Board of Directors, Alan Rzepkowski; and Chairman of the Maryland FBLA Board of Directors, David Jones, were all on hand to support the March of Dimes fundraiser. Commenting on how the group became involved, David Jones said, "One of the goals of the 2009-2010 Maryland FBLA State Officer team is to increase Maryland FBLA's participation in March of Dimes events, including volunteer opportunities and fundraising. This was the second year in a row Maryland FBLA was able to help with the silent auction and the Baltimore March of Dimes chapter has been a great partner for us to work with. Maryland FBLA was happy to help with this outstanding event again this year."
Maryland FBLA plans to continue their involvement with the March of Dimes by seizing additional volunteer and fundraising opportunities. Next up? A March for Babies team 2010! These future business leaders understand the importance of giving back and their volunteer efforts demonstrate that youth can ensure better opportunities for the youngest of America's youth — its babies.
