The Burbank Chapter of National Charity League Inc. Ticktocker Class of 2009 had its Senior Presentation in February at the Langham Huntington Hotel and Spa.

Family and friends joined in celebrating the accomplishments of 16 young women, two of whom are Glendale residents.

Over the past six years, these presentees have served the community by volunteering more than 9,750 hours at local philanthropies, such as BCR “a place to grow,” Burbank Family Service Agency, Burbank Temporary Aid Center, Boys & Girls Club and Burbank Dental Clinic, to name a few.

The presentees from Glendale are Christina Nicole Nelson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Brad Nelson, who was escorted by her brother, Steven; and Christine Adair Poyner, daughter of Jim Poyner and Patty Carmack-Poyner, escorted by her grandfather, George Carmack.

National Charity League Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering mother-daughter relationships in philanthropic endeavors within the community. The daughters, known as Ticktockers, participate in a six-year program of philanthropic work, leadership development, social events and cultural activities.
