I am grateful for the opportunity to continue leveraging strong relationships in the Nashville community to raise awareness and support for Cystic Fibrosis research. I hope to represent my amazing employer, BGSF, who has supported my community involvement in the last five years, which has led to my selection. It has been an exciting several years filled with many amazing people and large endeavors. Let’s work together to make a positive impact on those affected by this disease.”
Nashville’s Top 30 Under 30 Program
Young professionals play a significant role in Nashville. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation works to recognize these professionals making a name for themselves in their careers and helps them to grow into community leaders and influencers.
Honorees participate in a 16-week development program challenging themselves and growing their skill sets through a philanthropic competition raising funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Sydney will be honored at Nashville’s Top 30 Under 30 celebration gala at the Loveless Barn on Saturday, August 19, at 6 p.m. The event will feature a cocktail hour, dinner, and an awards program highlighting each honoree and their impact on the CFF’s mission to cure cystic fibrosis.
