Annapolis, MD (PRWEB) June 05, 2013
Buchanan & Edwards (BE) is proud to announce its contribution to the Cynthia Earley Educational Foundation (CEEF), a nonprofit that provides college scholarships for student athletes. CEEF has chosen Buchanan & Edwards as the presenting sponsor of the Cynthia Earley Scholarship Award at the 22nd annual Great Chesapeake Bay Swim (GCBS).
The 2013 event is scheduled for Sunday, June 9th at the Bay Bridge Marina, MD. Over 800 eligible student athletes will be entered in either the 1 or 4.4 mile swim events. The GCBS is a fundraiser for the Maryland Chapter of the March of Dimes and Chesapeake Bay Trust. The two student athletes raising the most funds for these charities will be recognized and awarded scholarships after the 4.4 mile race at the Bay Bridge Marina on the eastern shore of Maryland. BE’s CFO Carter Wood will present the scholarships of $1,000 and $500 to the winning student athletes.
The Earley family founded CEEF, including BE employee Darren Earley, to commemorate the life of their mother who was passionate about youth, education and leadership. BE shares the same ideals through its career internship program. BE recruits students and graduates with the goal of supporting their professional and educational goals as well as teaming to support charitable organizations and the community.
