In February 2017, many first-time philanthropists braved winter weather to attend Cabin Fever in support of MCC’s Dreamkeepers program at the Century Club of Rochester. Dreamkeepers offers micro-grants of less than $500 to financially struggling students faced with unexpected emergencies, such as a flat tire or unexpected childcare needs, so they can stay in school and on track for earning their degree. With the support of philanthropists at the inaugural Cabin Fever event in 2016, 87 percent of students who received Dreamkeepers support stayed in school or graduated. This year’s event was led by co-chairs Kitty and Adam Goldfeder and Molly and Tom Flaherty (pictured above left to right). Brighton Campus Student Government President Blake Moore spoke at the event about the obstacles students overcome while trying to better their lives with an education. Cabin Fever raised more than $10,000 (net) for the Dreamkeepers program.
