Ted Hontz, vice president at BCI, said it was a fun endeavor that ultimately saved the company money.

"If youre not doing it, youre leaving money on the table," he said.

Also at the gala, Marstel-Day presented a University of Mary Washington student with a $1,500 Innovation in Environmental Stewardship Award. The award was given to UMW sophomore Amanda Gambale, whose proposal involved monitoring blue crab populations.
