35 under 35 fundraising finale at Maryland Science Center
The finale of the third annual Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Baltimore's Finest 35 under 35 fundraiser takes place on Thursday, December 9th at the Maryland Science Center.
The participants are competing against each other with personal fundraising programs. I heard about it from Laura Alima, who is raffling off a table for eight at an upcoming Chef's Expressions wine dinner and a room at the Gramercy Mansion.
Here's more information on Lisa's 35 under 35 page.
So, why I am I featuring Lisa and not the other 34? She emailed me.
But I did click through the other participants' pages to make sure I wasn't ignoring other food-related fundraising schemes. I found one wine raffle, but I also found about a dozen participants who not only haven't arranged for an attractive donated prize but haven't raised any money yet at all. Or they haven't updated their pages. Young ones, get cracking.
From the website: "The event honors Baltimore's most outstanding young professionals for their success in business, leadership in the community, and their fund-raising commitment to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation."
