IAM Networking: Annual Fish Fry Fundraiser

Mark your calendars and join us for our 2nd Annual Fish Fry Fundraiser this Saturday, July 20th. We will have fish AND blue crabs! Come enjoy delicious food and support a good cause at the same time! Last year's proceeds allowed us to launch our virtual mentoring programs which now serve over 150 students with 50+ mentors. This year, your support will allow us to serve even more students, improve our virtual mentoring technology, and make a bigger impact on our youth. Help IAM help the community!
