The July 16, 2009 Jimmy Biggs Memorial Cabrini Connections Golf Benefit was attended by more than 120 guests. Thanks you to everyone who participated. See details at

Jimmy Biggs was first joined Cabrini  Connections when in elementary school. He stayed connected through high school and joined our staff in 1995. He helped form the Golf Benefit and had a goal of recruiting 100 business leaders who would support volunteer-based tutoring and mentoring at Cabrini Connections and in other parts of the city.

Jimmy died in 2000 before he could make that dream come true. However, the Golf Benefit is a way business and professional people can join us and  become one of those leaders that Jimmy was trying to recruit.

The Golf Benefit was attended by more than 120 people and we thank every one who participated. Here are some of the photos.

We still are seeking leaders to help us keep the vision of Jimmy Biggs. Read more.
