ASC Employees Raise Money for MDA
Five members of the Alfred State College community joined local leaders around the country recently who were picked up, locked up, and assessed a bail amount in order to get out of “jail.” By trading in their typical work duds for horizontal black-and-white prison stripes, they raised money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Not only did they “put the bite on” family, friends, and colleagues to raise “bail,” but three of the five were the top three money-raisers at the Hornell site. Dr. Stephen Havlovic, ASC vice president for Academic Affairs, raised $1,253; Barbara Davis, secretary to the dean of the School of Applied Technology was a close second at $1,220; and Steven Martinelli, professor, ASC Computerized Design and Manufacturing Department, who raised two sons with the disease, raised $840. Chanel Wright, executive assistant to the president of ASC, and Evan Enke, assistant professor, ASC Computer and Information Technology Department, were the other college participants. Proceeds enable MDA to continually provide help and hope to hundreds of thousands of children and adults living with neuromuscular disease. Donations from the Lock-Up will support local families and guarantee that MDA can continue its mission to find treatments and cures, as well as provide vital services. Support of the MDA Lock-Up will also help MDA provide medical equipment, clinic visits, support groups and a magical week of MDA Summer Camp for the families served by the Association in our local area.
