For years, CNP and its employees have been supporters of the March of Dimes, raising funds and awareness to help give premature babies a chance for a healthy start to life. “Each year CenterPoint Energy and its employees show their commitment to the fight against premature birth and healthy babies,” said Scott Rozzell, executive vice president and general counsel. “This year we raised more than $100,000 for this worthy cause, and I want to thank everyone in the CenterPoint Energy family who helped achieve this significant milestone.”
Employees in Minneapolis and Mankato held more than 10 events and raised more than $14,000 for the local March of Dimes. More than 50 employees and family members braved wet weather to participate in the walk. Goldie Gopher, the University of Minnesota mascot, joined the group for a photo.
“I am so proud to work with such generous people. Minnesota raised more money this year than last year, which is very exciting. We had a great turn-out for the walk even though it was a cold and rainy day. Being a mother of premature children, it really means a lot to me to see all of this support go to such a great cause,” said Laura Hirsch, Gas Engineer.
