What is the charitable cause you are most passionate about and why?

I am passionate about any charity to deals with the health of the Chesapeake Bay. It's really important as a boater to keep the waters as clean as possible for the wealth of entertainment that the Chesapeake Bay gives to us. I am also passionate about the youth learning about the treasures of the Bay area.

Why do you give through the CFC?

I give through the CFC because it's easy and you are able to evaluate the administrative costs associated with your designated charity. It's such an important campaign and allows for volunteer time which is also important. Charities do not just need our dollars but they also need our time.

How do contributions through the CFC help your cause?

I am able to give directly to the charity whether through my volunteer time or dollars. It creates an awareness of the issues affecting the Chesapeake Bay and an how an individual can contribute to the health of the Bay.
