14th Annual Brother Raymond L. Fitz Award Luncheon
On Friday, March 14, 2014, the Montgomery County Family and Children First Council will recognize Beth Mann at the 14th Annual Brother Raymond L. Fitz Award Luncheon. This notable event will be held from 11:30 a.m.to 1:00 p.m. at Top of the Market, 32 Webster Street in downtown Dayton.

 

Beth Mann is being recognized for her continued efforts as a volunteer to this community as Board President of For Love of Children (FLOC). Beth Mann is a graduate of Bowling Green State University with her Master of Arts and Bachelor of Science, Counseling Psychology.

 

To date, Beth Mann has assisted the FLOC organization in raising over half a million dollars in donations. As she has stated, “I am lucky enough to work with a group of truly compassionate volunteers who care deeply for the children we serve. We work with over 5,000 children in the greater Dayton area who are abused, neglected, in foster care, or in need of community resource. We are 100% volunteer based. There are no paid staff, just a deeply caring, involved group of adults who want to make the world a better place for our children who need it most.”

 

Beth’s husband is attorney, Doug Mann, of Dyer, Garofalo, Mann, and Schultz. Beth and Doug met in college and married. Beth’s work as a volunteer and her enthusiasm for the children FLOC services have seeped into the Mann’s family life and work. The Mann’s have opened their home many times to host the FLOC Gala, to provide a cost-effective way to create more donations for the children.
