As you might have noticed, the BizNet email did not go out the last couple of weeks.  There was an issue with the blog site that pushes out our blog posts to you by email.  Thanks to Dave Jackson (USMA '73) for the research to fix that for us.


Here's a re-post of an item from Bryn Narcisian (USNA '89), which most of you probably did not see due to the blog issues we were having.  Bryn also spoke with us on this at our BizNet meeting last week.

I was wondering if you could help me get the word out about a young lady who will be going to USNA next year. She has started a charity to benefit female veterans. She calls it SHE Served. She had already started a charity to give sports jerseys to underprivileged kids call Sportakid. When she did a high school English paper on female veterans, in her research she realized they were underserved. She started SHE Served under the charity she already had to raise money for female veterans in Colorado. She designed a special jersey for this purpose. She is selling them and also welcoming and honoring them at a high school lacrosse game on Sept. 27 at 4:15pm in Highlands Ranch. In addition, all veterans are welcome.
The jerseys can be purchased at the game.

More information about Sportakid can be found here. In addition she was interviewed on Channel 2 news about this and that can be found on the Sportakid website as well. The interview and the opportunity to donate to Volunteers of America Colorado and the Clermont Commons facility for female Veterans are also available on her GoFundMe page. 

Please let me know if you need any further info or have any other ideas about how to get the word out about this valuable fundraising effort by an amazing young woman who is already serving, even before attending USNA.

Have a great week.
