Please plan to attend this year’s Dr. Kathleen Gandy IMPACT Foundation Annual Dinner and Silent Auction and help raise funds to support student scholarships, medical research, and community-based organizations.  Both global education and academic CCBC student scholarship opportunities are now available thanks to the generous giving of Kathleen’s many friends and colleagues.  We invite you to mark the calendar and save the date for this fall’s major fundraising event:
               Date:                     Friday, October 14, 2016, 7:00 p.m. – 10 p.m.
               Venue:                  Rolling Road Golf Club, Catonsville, Maryland
               Tickets:                $70 per seat
The speaker for this year’s dinner is Ms. Kimberly Ellison-Taylor, CPA, CGMA.  Ms. Ellison-Taylor is the Global Accounting Strategy Director for the Financial and Professional Services Industries for Oracle America.  She currently serves as the Vice-chairman of the Board of Directors for the American Institute of CPAs.  We are very fortunate to have secured such an esteemed speaker who not only represents Kathleen’s teaching discipline but also is a CCBC alumnus! 
We are in need of themed baskets for the silent auction.  If you are able to create an auction basket, please contact Michelle Jones – or 443-840-5813 – to let her know that you would like to donate a basket.
Lastly, the Board is soliciting nominees for the Dr. Kathleen Gandy Impact Award and the Dr. Kathleen Gandy Never Quit Award.  The attached solicitation form provides details on the criteria for each award and instructions for submitting a nominee to the Board for consideration.  Awards will be presented at the Dinner and Silent Auction.  Please consider nominating someone for one or both awards.
