"OneMain Financial is thrilled to partner with OriolesREACH and KisPeace to teach the importance of financial education particularly in today's economy,” said Mary McDowell President & CEO, CitiFinancial North America. “Our ‘Cost of Cool’ curriculum makes students aware of the impact of buying name brand items versus generic brand items -- in other words, the price they pay to look cool, in order to make informed spending decisions.”

“In honor of OneMain Financial’s 100th Anniversary and Citi’s 200th Anniversary, we are also thrilled to invite 200 OneMain Financial and Citi employees and their guests to enjoy a night at the ballpark with KidsPeace and the Baltimore Orioles.”

KidsPeace is proud to celebrate 130 years of giving hope, help and healing to children, families and communities. Founded in 1882, KidsPeace provides a variety of foster care and community-based treatment programs to help people in need overcome challenges and transform their lives.  KidsPeace accepts foster homes throughout Central Maryland.
