Flywire Legacy awards is the collaborative brain child of Marcy Crum, Konan and Executive Chef Phil Crump. The entrepreneurs had a desire to help elevate entrepreneurs in Baltimore. They reached out to Mr. J.T. McCray and Chris Chambers, from Jack Daniel’s, with their vision and without hesitation Jack Daniel’s donated $10,000 to this wonderful cause. 

After a competition of thirty minority entrepreneurs from all industries in the Baltimore area, the winners were recognized. 

The event was hosted on March 7 at Dream Mega Lounge. The three finalists were announced and awarded their prizes. Third place went to a Pretty Tees, a catering company, second place went to a mental health care advocacy J. Pope and Associates, and the first place winners were the dynamic Dana Wade and her husband, of Black Heart, a clothing line. 

This event truly showed the uprising of entrepreneurship and our community throwing the line back to uplift someone else.
