BATON ROUGE – The Flores LSU MBA Association (MBAA) raised $15,000 for the Baton Rouge Youth Coalition (BRYC) during the fourth annual MBAA charity gala at the Capitol Park Museum. MBAA presented a check to BRYC on April 25, 2019.
“A testament to our MBA student experience is the idea of giving back,” said Dana Hart, director of the Flores MBA program.” Our students continually give their time and energy to support philanthropy in the greater Baton Rouge area. One way they do this is through our annual gala. This year, our students supported the Baton Rouge Youth Coalition and raised $15,000 to support their students. Truly an amazing feat for such a worthy cause.”
“The Baton Rouge Youth Coalition is honored and profoundly grateful to have been selected by the LSU MBA Association as the beneficiary of its annual fundraising effort,” said Lucas Spielfogel, executive director of BRYC. “The event and overall campaign were hits, and the funds raised will go a long way toward empowering BRYC to level the playing field for incredible, underserved youth in pursuit of college and beyond. We hope this is the beginning of a long, fruitful partnership!”
Event sponsors include B&G Foods, Anton's Fine Jewelry, Juengling & Associates, Tucker Electric, Baton Rouge Cardiology Center, Elifin Reality, Mercedes-Benz of Baton Rouge, Performance Contractors, Graph Financial, Whitney Bank, Brown and Root and Plexos Group.
