Young business, community leaders offer diverse talents to help raise friends and funds
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Nov. 23, 2015) – Family & Children’s Place, which works with children and families hurt by violence, abuse and neglect, has selected 11 young Louisville business and community leaders to help advance the agency through its 2016 Ambassador program.
Additionally, agency leaders selected Shannon Siders, a marketing communications associate for the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, to chair the 2016 panel.
“I am very excited about this, our second class of Ambassadors,” said Micah Jorrisch, director of corporate and community partnerships. “We’ve had great success with events such as Louisville Uncorked, Louisville Mashed, Beer & Banters, the St. James Court Art Show, and golf scramble, and look forward to their ideas and efforts about how to engage even more people in our work.”
Ambassadors are volunteers and help create awareness of and support for the agency through speaking and networking opportunities, agency and third party events and mentoring opportunities with members of the agency’s Board of Director.
As chair, Siders will help manage the ambassador program, alongside Jorrisch, be the principal point of contact between the agency Board and ambassadors, support fundraising and friend raising events and help recruit and engage future ambassadors.
