Marketplace Gives Back
Since Marketplace 2007, Marketplace Gives Back has raised more than $70,000 for local charities. Continuing this tradition, the 2010 Marketplace Advisory Committee (MAC) has selected the Yellow Ribbon Fund, whose mission is to welcome our injured service members home and provide assistance to them and their families while they recuperate in the Capital Region.
