BCP Does Cha Cha Slide at CFC Kick-Off

BCP's Larry Schugam does Cha Cha Slide
with SSA's CFC Coordinators
Tobi Morris and Larry Schugam had a wonderful time representing the Baltimore Curriculum Project at yesterday's Social Security Administration Combined Federal Campaign Kick-Off Ceremony and Charity Fair.

The event included a welcome by Stacy Rodgers (Senior Advisor, SSA Office of the Commissioner), remarks by Carolyn W. Colvin (Acting Commissioner of Social Security), and a keynote by Col. Jeremy Martin (Commandant, United States Defense Information School at Fort Meade, MD).

Col. Martin, who also serves as the Chesapeake Bay Area CFC Chair, praised federal employees for their generosity and resiliency. Last year, despite government furloughs and a complete government shutdown, the Chesapeake Bay Area Campaign raised over six million dollars for CFC charities. This was the third highest total of all CFC regions in the United States.

The Charity Fair featured a host of nonprofit organizations, a raffle, karaoke, line dancing, and nachos.

"This was by far the most fun I've ever had at a charity campaign kick-off!" said Mr. Schugam.

"Where else can you get to talk with nice people about your nonprofit's work and do the Cha-Cha Slide."

We would like to thank the Social Security Administration and the Chesapeake Bay Area CFC for including the Baltimore Curriculum Project in their kick-off.

About the Combined Federal Campaign

The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is the only authorized solicitation of Federal employees in their workplace on behalf of approved charitable organizations. The CFC coordinates the fund-raising effort of various charitable organizations so that the federal donor would only be solicited once, annually, in the workplace and have the opportunity to make charitable contributions through payroll deduction.

Federal employees continue to make the CFC the largest and most successful workplace philanthropic fundraiser in the world.
