3rd Annual Cabin Fever


In February 2018, first-time philanthropists braved winter weather to attend Cabin Fever at the home of Amanda and Brian Donovan. The evening, led by co-chairs Molly and Tom Flaherty and Michelle Rauber-Nonkes and Jason Michael Ripple, raised $14,000 (net) to support MCC’s Dreamkeepers program. Dreamkeepers offers micro-grants of less than $500 to financially struggling students faced with unforeseen emergencies—the ultimate “plot twists” in their journey to earning a degree. Micro-grants help students overcome urgent transportation, childcare and other needs so they can continue their studies.
