Joseph Zednik, an Immokalee Foundation board member and mentor, and Bonita Springs resident, has been named to chair the organization’s Charity Classic Celebration scheduled for Friday, Nov. 11, at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples.
Highlights of the evening include an extraordinary dinner, live and silent auctions featuring once-in-a-lifetime experiences, music, entertainment and dancing.
The event’s theme, Dream. Believe. Experience., celebrates the foundation’s mission to provide sustained educational opportunities that make aspirations come true for the youth of Immokalee. TIF’s largest fundraiser raised a record-breaking $1.5 million in 2010 for the foundation’s educational programs.
“The programs funded by the Charity Classic Celebration help the kids of Immokalee obtain an education so they may have the opportunity to live the American dream,” said Zednik. “There is no better feeling than helping them grow, learn and succeed.”
Along with his position on The Immokalee Foundation board, Zednik is CEO of Prescient Ridge Fund, LLC, and is a former member of the Chicago Board of Trade, Chicago Board of Options, Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Eurex and National Futures Association. Zednik received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Illinois Institute of Technology.
