CBN Signature Events
The range of activities within CBN-MC has grown significantly, with events of every kind sponsored throughout the year.
CNB Breakfast Meetings bring together an average of 80-100 members and guests to hear speakers, network, socializing and focus on the CBN-MC tasks from 7:30 to 9:00am on the 2nd Friday of each month at Our Lady of Bethesda Retreat Center. Each meeting features a guest speaker. In addition to the speaker, there is plenty of time for networking and socializing. In addition every attendee leaves with a business card and the promise to contact that person before the next meeting.
Quarterly Evening Receptions
CBN-MC Evening Receptions bring together an average of 50-80 members and guests to network and socialize. The receptions are held at different venues throughout Montgomery County. Please check the events schedule for the next reception.
At our April breakfast we award Essay Scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $2,500 to rising freshman totaling $30,000. These scholarships are funded completely by the generosity of our Leading Sponsors. (Donate Now Button)
We also award Needs Based Scholarships to Elementary Schools. These are based on financial need and are sent directly to the Principals. These funds come from the donations at our Gala and $10,000 from the John C Grimberg Company. In 2017 we raised $58,000.
In addition we give Grants to any school that applies. They buy library books, iPads, plant trees, whatever they need. This year we gave 23 Grants of $1,500 to each School totaling $35,000. These funds come from the profits of the Gala.
This is a great event as we get to see our mission of supporting Catholic Schools come alive. Attendance is 120-150.
