Making a difference through service and compassionate leadership.
After attending the HOBY NY Metro Leadership Seminar in June 2013, Lizzy G. was so inspired and motivated by her own HOBY experience, she immediately sought opportunities to serve and support the people in her community.
In the fall of 2013, Lizzy organized the Haunted House and Safe Halloween events at her high school. She not only coordinated all fundraising activities, but she also recruited the volunteers and ensured the events were successful. Her efforts helped raised money and allowed a donation to be made to the Little Angels Foundation and to a family in her community who lost their young daughter to cancer.
Lizzy, with the help of other HOBY alumni, plan to expand and grow this event even further! Lizzy is just one example of all the OUTSTANDING HOBY NY Metro alumni who are making a positive difference in their community.
