Message from the President:
Dear Friends of the FFB Denver Chapter:
My name is Carmen Swick and I am fortunate and excited to be your Chapter President. We have had an excellent past few years of growth in fundraising and awareness and it is my goal to ensure we continue this momentum. In the upcoming year one of my primary goals is to add help seed the energy of the Chapter by increasing involvement with our youth. As we all know it is our youth who hold the key to success in the future so it is crucial we involve and engage our youth in the accomplishments of the Denver Chapter.
