Jenny Powers - BizBash  Readers' Choice Award finalist Jenny Powers

VP of Special Event, The National MS Society

Jenny Powers first foray into fundraising was like a lot of girl’s experiences with one exception. A Brownie, she knocked on every door in the neighborhood and asked people to buy cookies so the Brownies would stay in business long enough for her own daughter to one day sell cookies too. She sold 400 boxes in a three block radius. Since this time, Jenny has raised tens of millions of dollars for a variety of non-profits, including the National MS Society where she has been the Vice President Development, Special Events for more than 8 years. She was born to do this and says if she woke up tomorrow and won the lottery, she would still make it her business to help people less fortunate.
