On Saturday, February 4, 2017, 800+ guests got dressed to the nines and flooded the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel for the biggest Health Care for the Homeless fundraiser of the year – the Chocolate Affair.
We are pleased to announce that the U.S. Coast Guard is partnering with The Baltimore Nighthawks for a third year! Our goal is to provide a safe and productive environment that enables women to learn and apply the principles of teamwork, discipline, dedication, and sportsmanship. The Baltimore Nighthawks facilitate the development of strength and character in everyone that participates. These aligns perfectly with the goals of the United States Coast Guard and the opportunities a career in the USCG can provide.
Tanya Bryan, CEO of the Baltimore Nighthawks said: “We are excited to continue this venture with the U.S. Coast Guard in Baltimore for 2023. Both our organizations are focused on providing opportunities. Having a partner like the Coast Guard who is committed to creating new opportunities for diverse groups is motivating. We look forward to sharing the Coast Guard mission with even more of our fans, friends and family members as well as the local communities we live in and support.”

BALTIMORE, Jan. 10, 2023 – The Baltimore Nighthawks announced that PNC Bank will continue as a corporate sponsor for the 2023 season.
A member of the Women’s Football Alliance (WFA), the Baltimore Nighthawks was formed in 2007 to teach women in the greater Baltimore area the sport of football. Since then, it has grown to attract talented athletes throughout Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia and D.C., with the purpose of elevating women’s tackle football to the forefront of women’s sports.
Tanya Bryan, Chief Executive Officer of the Baltimore Nighthawks, said of the sponsorship renewal, “We are excited to continue our relationship with PNC Bank. This sponsorship allows us to provide the best resources for our athletes while expanding our support of Baltimore-area activities for youth and others.”
The extension of the PNC relationship is vital to my small business and the growth of women’s tackle football in Baltimore. Costs of doing business post COVID-19 have skyrocketed. This is especially impactful when needing to rent facilities for practice, classroom, weight training and game day. The travel costs have increased substantially so having a multi-year sponsor really helps with hotels, buses and flights.
PNC has always been committed to strengthening the economic vitality of the communities where they live and work. We have seen this throughout the Baltimore area with initiatives like the mobile bank branches which consists of a fleet of mobile units with teller services. It provides access and economic empowerment in areas that banks often avoid or underserve. Having a partner who is focused on helping drive initiatives to year to help women and local youth initiatives in Greater Baltimore is wonderful.
The goal of the Baltimore Nighthawks is to provide a safe and productive environment that enables women to learn and apply the principles of teamwork, discipline, dedication and
sportsmanship. The team works to facilitate the development of strength and character in everyone that participates. The Baltimore Nighthawks also have demonstrated a commitment to supporting various charities, and youth and community engagement programs.
“Over the years, multiple youth programs have been eliminated, leaving children with limited options for after school activities,” Bryan said. “PNC’s sponsorship helps address this community need by allowing us to create opportunities for youth programs and events. The support of PNC Bank during one of the most trying times in modern history is something for which I am forever grateful. I look forward to the future and greater collaboration.”
