(BALTIMORE, Maryland) July 14, 2017 — We’re marching closer to the end of this incredible summer journey. The 7-City Bus Tour is at the halfway point. We have loved seeing the results week after week, and now you can, too.

We had a phenomenal week in Baltimore, Maryland. Many, many thanks to The Cordish Companies and Spark Baltimore for hosting our summer camp and to Morgan State University for hosting our awards ceremony.

And there was plenty to celebrate.

Every week, we award $500 to the young woman who gives the best Passion Pitch. The money will go to seed their business venture.

In Baltimore, that honor went to Adia, CEO of Pre-Tween.

We are so thrilled to announce TWO winners in Baltimore. This is Brooklyn, the creator of Kool Cases. Spark Baltimore was so impressed by her business idea, THEY donated $500 on the spot to help her begin her business.

Congratulations to BOTH of our deserving winners!

And we were thrilled to have a special guest visiting us.

The girls learned from Tiffany Robinson, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan’s Deputy Chief of Staff. She encourages everyone to keep an open mind to possibilities. We are certainly following her advice.

Baltimore is a wrap. Onto Philadelphia, Pennsylvania!
