FSC First’s “Step into Success” Gala & Sneaker Ball held at the Hotel at UMD was a great night of celebration and networking. We honored our remarkable small business awardees and acknowledged our valued partners.

ABC News Anchor, Adrianna Hopkins brought the energy as our mistress of ceremonies and we were privileged to have John Hale III, Chair of the FSC First Board, extend a warm welcome, alongside insightful remarks from Angie Rodgers, Deputy Chief Administrative Officer of Prince George’s County, and an inspiring keynote address delivered by President & CEO of FSC First, Dawn Medley.

We also heard from our County Executive Angela Alsobrooks:

“As a resource, FSC First provides knowledge, know-how and insight that helps small businesses turn their ideas and dreams into reality.”  

And Governor Wes Moore shared a message as well: 

“The importance of organizations like FSC First cannot be overstated…dedication to offering access to capital and empowering entrepreneurs and small business owners makes a real difference in all our communities.”  

We greatly appreciate all who help us realize our mission by supporting FSC First in providing small businesses with access to capital and the technical services they need to accomplish their goals and grow their businesses. Big congratulations to our small business awardees for their notable contributions to the economic development of Prince George’s County.
