The night I have been waiting for. The event I have been working on with members from the St. Francis Neighborhood Center and TBR finally came to life. We brought in 80k for our kids. I felt honored to be a part of this “Historic Night of Chances,” and what made this so special and unlike many other fundraising events, is that many of the kids I tutor and mentor were here with us. Watching them get excited to see me is all the fuel I need. Seeing how well behaved and respectful they were the entire night makes me realize that my presence in their lives has made a real difference. There is nothing quite like this feeling.
Senator Ben Cardin.

Finally, Van Brooks. Van is an inspiration to all of us. He is the founder and executive director of SAFE Alternative Foundation for Education. Baltimore is truly lucky to have passionate leaders like Van.
