(PRWEB) July 07, 2011
Staff Management | SMX, the industry's leading provider of comprehensive staffing solutions, is proud to sponsor the 2011 Jimmy Biggs Memorial Cabrini Connections Golf Benefit. The event will be held on July 21, 2011 at the Highland Park Country Club in Highland Park, IL.
Cabrini Connections works to support the large number of children on the North Side of Chicago who fail to obtain the basic skills and experiences necessary to compete for employment in the global economy. The organization believes after-school tutoring, mentoring and school-to-work programs will make a significant difference, encouraging young people to finish high school and enter the work force versus dropping out and joining the welfare generation.
"We are proud to sponsor of this valuable event and to help make an impact in the community surrounding our Chicago headquarters," said Anne Osty, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Staff Management. "As a major employer we know the difference that tutoring, mentoring and school-to-work programs can make and so we are pleased to support Cabrini Connections' important work."
The golf benefit is named after Jimmy Biggs. Jimmy became part of the Cabrini Connections tutor/mentor program when he was in second grade. After graduating from high school, Jimmy became part of the Cabrini Connections staff and helped launch the Cabrini Connections Golf Benefit. Jimmy died in 2000 before he was able to fully make his vision a reality. The event was renamed in his honor in recognition of his contributions to Cabrini Connections. Barry Cofield, Northwestern University alumni and defensive lineman of the New York Giants, is the official spokesman of the 2011 Cabrini Connections' Golf Benefit and is expected to be in attendance at the event.
Since its inception, Cabrini Connections has created school-to-work opportunities for inner-city children by recruiting volunteers to provide quality after-school tutoring and mentoring to teenagers living in the Cabrini-Green area of Chicago. More than 525 youth have had one to seven consecutive years of tutoring/mentoring in this program since January 1993. Many are now college graduates.
