Today’s opening bell of the NASDAQ exchange will include members of a Lafayette area non-profit. Blake Powers is CEO of “Cooking with the Troops,” which provides special meals, such as cook-outs, to members of the military and other opportunities. He says they contacted representatives on Wall Street to appear before traders and make a few comments at the start of business. Powers hopes to attract some new partnerships through the event. He will have no more than two-minutes to make his pitch at the NASDAQ before the opening bell.
