RRBMDK Associate Courtney H. Schlieter recipient of The Barbara Pratt Lee Heart of Gold Award at The Campagna Center Platinum Gala on May 9, 2015.

Courtney joined The Campagna Center (TCC) Junior Friends in the fall of 2007, with a strong desire to give back to her community; she has been an active Junior Friend, JF board member, and supporter of TCC ever since. A true testament to the relationships built and formed through Junior Friends, while chairing Deck the Halls, Courtney met Lonnie Rich and Lana Manitta. She credits Junior Friends for her job at their law firm, Rich Rosenthal Brincefield Manitta Dzubin & Kroeger, LLP, (RRBMDK), a long-time supporter of TCC.

In 2014, Courtney was the main force behind an extremely successful Beer Tasting fundraiser at RRBMDK, raising almost $10,000 for TCC.

Another Junior Friend noted that Courtney exemplifies the quote “character is what you do when no one is watching.” In one small example, after being told her help was not needed at Deck the Halls, Courtney helped Heather & Greens in the pouring rain for hours beyond her set shift instead of heading home. She has recruited many new Junior Friends, and even collects book donations for TCC at her children’s birthday parties. (From TCC The Platinum Gala program, May 9, 2015.)

More Giving in our Communities… RRBMDK Partner Lana M. Manitta has joined the Board of Directors of Let’s Help Kids! (LHK)

LHK was started by a kid to help other kids, and its mission is to help elementary-school aged children in D.C., Maryland and Virginia whose families are experiencing financial hardship by providing them with special items or experiences that they otherwise could not afford. Examples include but are not limited to birthday presents, bicycles, books, trips to local amusement parks, dance or sports lessons, art supplies or tickets to see a play.

Manitta joined LHK because she feels strongly that every child deserves to experience joy and laughter each and every day, and to feel special and supported by his/her community.

As a Board Member, Manitta plans to help the organization achieve its fund raising goals and expand its reach to additional communities and children in need.
