(PRWEB) November 11, 2013
Daphne Large, CEO of Data Facts Inc, has accepted an invitation by Make-A-Wish® Mid-South to serve on its Board of Trustees.
Large is excited by the opportunity to give back to the community through such a worthy cause. "I hope that my involvement will help further the goals of Make-A-Wish® and make a difference for this worthwhile organization. The work they do is most worthy and truly can have a positive influence in a child’s life with a life-threatening medical condition."
Data Facts Inc., has been involved with Make-A-Wish Mid-South in the past by sponsoring the wildly successful Dishes for Wishes, hosted by top chef Felicia Suzanne. Make-A-Wish Mid-South is also a premier non-profit in Data Facts’ Give Back Initiative that began in early 2013.
Daphne will be serving on the Finance Committee. She has a great deal of experience in that arena, having served on the Board of the NCRA (National Consumer Reporting Association) for 6 years as President, VP and Treasurer and as a Director and Officer for St. George's Independent School for 4 years.
Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® has given hope, strength and joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions. In 2013, more than 226,000 children in the United States have benefited from the hope, strength and joy of experiencing their one heartfelt wish. The Mid-South chapter, which encompasses West Tennessee, Arkansas, and North Mississippi, has granted more than 4,300 wishes since its inception in 1986.
The Make-A-Wish Mid-South board helps chart the Foundation’s course. As a whole, the board ensures that the chapter is operating according to the highest standards of brand and financial stewardship, and that the chapter is focused on granting more wishes every year. It evaluates and supports the President and Chief Executive Officer.
The board also protects the Foundation’s assets, enhances its public standing, ensures accountability, maintains legal integrity and assesses its own performance.
During her tenure as a Board member, Large will attend board meetings and events on behalf of the board. She will also have the pleasure of being present at the granting of some children’s wishes. She comments, "I will do my best to represent both Make-A-Wish and Data Facts well."
Daphne will serve an initial 3 year term.
