CPAs care (for Casey Cares Foundation)

Dsc03179_6 On June 7, the MACPA's New/Young Professionals Network (NYPN) held its annual charity event at Tom Mitchell's Golf Complex in Reisterstown and raised almost $5,000 for the Casey Cares Foundation, which helps critically ill children and their families in Maryland.

Almost 60 young CPAs came out to play the "monster in the pines" course, donating their time and money to this important cause. You could feel the sense of urgency and pride in these young CPAs as they rallied to get a such a strong turnout.

The event took on even more significance as the charity's headquarters in Arbutus burned down just a few days earlier. There was a genuine spirit of concern and urgency as these young professionals rallied their friends to help them.

Every year, our NYPN group has selected a charity to help with its volunteer efforts. The group has11_5_bold_steps identified volunteerism and helping the community as an ongoing and regular part of its strategic plan. These young professionals definitely have it right: They are demonstrating some of the most important attributes of the CPA profession -- volunteerism and being an active part of the community.

Even WJZ, Channel 13 was on hand to interview our young professionals and highlight their efforts. Watch the video here.

Great job to our young professionals!

I just logged onto the Casey Cares Web site and donated to help the cause. I urge you to click on this link and select the "click here to donate" link. Let's show how much CPAs care!
