At the age of nineteen, figure skater Dorothy Hamill won her Gold Medal at the 1976 Winter Games in Innsbruck and captured our imaginations. Following her win at the 1976 Olympic Games, Dorothy went on to win the World Championship title. As a professional, Dorothy has skated in many productions, including 8 years with the Ice Capades, the company she helped bring to preeminence. Dorothy has produced and starred in her own touring productions and won an Emmy for her starring role in “Romeo and Juliet.” Dorothy was inducted into the Olympic Hall of Fame and the Figure Skating Hall of Fame.
The Show is in aid of Family and Children Services of Central Maryland for over 160 years, FCS has provided vital services to families and individuals throughout central Maryland. Last year we served over 8,000 clients through eighteen programs in thirteen locations, offering counseling to adults and children dealing with the trauma of physical or sexual abuse; crisis counseling and shelter for victims of domestic violence; an after-school program that builds self-esteem (as well as science, computer and dancing skills) in middle-school girls from low-income homes; a GED program combined with parenting skills training for teen mothers; and support and companionship for senior citizens through in-home care and adult day care center programs.
In this tight economy, funding for private non-profit agencies is harder to find. 80% of our budget comes from government grants and the purchase of service contracts. Client fees generate another 9% and investment income provides 5%. Fundraising efforts must generate 6%. Money raised by the Antiques Show Preview Party and Lecture is our single largest source of unrestricted funding, and is vital to our ongoing success.
The need for the services we offer children, families, the elderly and disabled continues to grow. Please visit our website, www.fcsmd.org, to learn more about how we assist our clients with these critical challenges, and how you can help. Thank you for supporting the Maryland Antiques Show of Hunt Valley and Family and Children’s Services of Central Maryland.
In addition to her many talents, Dorothy is also an accomplished author. She released her memoir entitled, “A Skating Life: My Story”, from Hyperion Publishing, which made the NY Times Best Seller List.
