Continued Celebrity Support

The Cabrini Connections' program received even more celebrity support for the 2008 Jimmie Biggs Memorial Cabrini Connections' Golf Benefit. Ken Holland, Executive Vice President/General Manager/Alternative Governor of the Stanley Cup Champions, the Detroit Red Wings, donated an authentic autographed jersey of the future NHL Hall of Famer Chris Chelios this past week. Chris Chelios is one of the true NHL legends who is still adding to his legacy as a current member of the Detroit Red Wings. Mr. Holland is also a legend in his own right, it is stated that he is 'arguably the most successful general manager in all of professional sports over the last 10 years.' This generous donation and support by Mr. Holland and Mr. Chelios continues to shine light on the Cabrini Connections' program and assist us with producing more and more success stories within our program.

We also received further support from the NFL through a personal donation from Miami Dolphins' #68 G/C Ikechuku "Ike" Ndukwe. "Ike" also known by some of his former Northwestern University teammates, as "Bone Crusher" agreed to support Cabrini Connections and the golf benefit without hesitation! Mr. Ndukwe not only agreed to support the program he shared this 'giving back' opportunity with several of his Dolphins' teammates and they agreed to suppport Cabrini Connections as well by providing their autographs to a football to be auctioned off at the golf benefit. "Ike" is not only a personal friend and former teammate of mine, Mr. Ndukwe is genuially a stand up guy who would have supported this program not because I asked him, but I feel that he would support Cabrini Connections or any other program that has the mission of bettering the lives of others!

Here are two more examples of high profile celebrities supporting the Cabrini Connections program and all that this program does to provide the youthful participants the tools and resources they need in today's and tomorrow's society to be successful! And the Cabrini Connections can't thank you all enough for your support!
