2012 has not been without its challenges; yet we cherish each moment we have been given with each other and our community and keep those who are suffering deep in our hearts. Nowhere was the abundance of our community more evident than last week, when we were surrounded by friends, partners, entrepreneurs and the entire Rising Tide Family for our first-ever fundraising gala. Thanks to your support, we were able to raise enough funds to cover 60 scholarships for the Community Business Academy in the new year! 


More businesses and entrepreneurs need our support as they rebuild their lives and neighborhoods after Hurricane Sandy. I hope you take a minute to click on the link below and hear what they had to say in this mission video created by Chase, our lead sponsor for the Start Something Challenge program and gala.


Thank you so much for everything you have done and continue to do to make this mission possible! 


Wishing you and your family a safe, joyous and peaceful Holiday season,  


Alfa Demmellash 

CEO, Rising Tide Capital
