By | Local NewsWIRE | No Comments

(SAVANNAH, GA) Popular American tennis champ James Blake, who achieved a fourth place world ranking in 2006, is among the 32 professional players slated to compete in the third annual $50,000 Savannah Challenger. The tournament, presented by Critz Automotive Group and The Landings Club, will take place April 30-May 8 at The Landings on Skidaway Island.

Blake, a former tennis star at Harvard University, is coming back from a knee injury and is currently the twelfth top-rated male player in the U.S.

Other top players competing in the 2011 $50,000 Savannah Challenger include Ryan Sweeting, Robby Ginepri, Robert Kendrick, Michael Russell, Donald Young, Carsten Ball, Ryan Harrison and Bobby Reynolds. Sweeting, the highest ranked player in the competition with a current world ranking of 67, won the 2011 U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championships singles title in Houston on April 10.

Each year, the USTA hosts 16 Challenger Tournaments around the country. Participants are usually full-time ATP tour players with a world ranking of 40-200 who play in the tournaments to improve their rankings and advance to Grand Slam events. Many of the professionals who competed in the 2010 $50,000 Savannah Challenger went on to play in prestigious tennis tournaments around the world, including the Australian Open, the U.S. Open, Wimbledon and the French Open.

The qualifying rounds of the $50,000 Savannah Challenger begin on Saturday, April 30, and the finals take place on Sunday, May 8. In addition to the professional competition, the week-long tournament will feature a Kids Day Clinic and a Ladies Day, as well as a Pro-Am in which 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Special Pops Tennis, an adaptive tennis program for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

(SAVANNAH, GA) The Savannah Book Festival, a celebration of the written word, announces today that Ms. Robin Gold has been chosen as the new executive director for the festival effective April 15, 2011. Most recently, Ms. Gold served as a consultant for 2011 Savannah Book Festival, advising in all areas of event planning, communication and development.

Ms. Gold began her non-profit work as the director of special events for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in Connecticut.  Moving to Savannah in 2003, Ms. Gold then collaborated with Savannah Country Day School to initiate and direct the Creative Minds Speaker Series.  She has also worked as a consultant for the Humane Society for Greater Savannah.  Most recently, she collaborated with The Landings Club in 2009 to bring a USTA Professional Men’s Tennis Tournament to Savannah, and she has continued as the tournament chair of the USTA Savannah Challenger.

“After working with Robin on the 2011 festival, I’m thrilled to have her join on a full time basis!” says Stephanie Duttenhaver, board president.  “Her experience with Creative Minds is exactly the right background for this job, providing her with the tools to grow the festival as well as expand our creative programming.  Her vision and enthusiasm will be immensely helpful to the board as we implement our new strategic plan.  Indeed, under the board’s direction, Robin will now lead the effort to recruit author presenters, maintaining the proven quality of previous speakers while striving for an ever better festival.”

Ms. Gold says, “I’m honored and delighted to join such a dynamic organization, which is fast becoming one of our country’s most highly regarded book festivals.  The volunteer base is one of the most engaged and enthusiastic groups I’ve ever worked with, and I’m thrilled by this wonderful opportunity.”

Board of directors vice president Jack Romanos, former CEO of publisher Simon & Schuster, adds, “The SBF is in great shape to move forward, and it will continue to deliver the outstanding writing talent that has made this event one of the premier book festivals in the country.  We’re fortunate to have Robin joining our team, which includes an outstanding board and a great group of volunteers who help the festival grow and evolve while still holding true to its original mission: to promote reading, writing and civil conversation.”

Goodwill Industries of the Coastal Empire to Open Job Connections Community Career Center in Lyons

By | Local NewsWIRE | No Comments

(LYONS, GA) Goodwill Industries of the Coastal Empire will expand its services to Lyons, Georgia, with the opening of the Job Connections Community Career Center on Friday, April 15. The center, which will connect businesses and job seekers in Toombs and surrounding counties, will offer an array of services and classes. Business and community leaders have been invited to a VIP reception on Thursday, April 14 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The public is invited to attend a grand opening celebration on Friday, April 15 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Located at 105 Moore Circle, the Job Connections Community Career Center will offer job seekers access to job leads and technology to conduct an effective job search. Job seekers will be able to take classes to refine their resumes, learn interviewing skills and develop an effective job search strategy. Businesses will be able to list their job openings and utilize the facility to conduct job interviews.

Through partnerships with other community agencies, the community center hopes to eventually offer financial literacy classes, health and wellness classes, and GED preparatory classes.

In addition to connecting people with jobs, the center will serve as home base for Goodwill’s Buena Vida initiative in Toombs County, a program that reaches out to immigrant families to assist them with their search for employment and the supportive services necessary to be successful. The Buena Vida initiative currently offers adult education and GED classes in Spanish. The program will eventually offer English as a Second Language classes, ESL Work Literacy classes, and instruction in Spanish for employers as they face a growing diverse workforce. Goodwill Community Outreach Coordinator Rey Morales will also be available to assist employers with interpreting for job interviews.

“We believe that the Job Connections Community Career Center will have a profound impact on Lyons and the surrounding areas,” says Mohsen Badran, CEO of Goodwill Industries of the Coastal Empire, Inc. “The residents of Toombs County, especially the area’s growing Spanish-speaking population, will have access to services that will improve their employment prospects and equip them with the tools necessary to thrive in their communities and beyond.”

Badran anticipates that the career center will also be a boon to business. “The local economy can benefit from well-trained and readily employable Spanish-speaking workers,” he says, noting the similar productive role such workers play in our national economy.

The Job Connections Community Career Center will be open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesday and Thursday from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. Classes at the center will meet seven days a week.

Goodwill Industries of the Coastal Empire, Inc. is dedicated to the mission of assisting people with disabilities and other barriers to employment to live independently and become employed. The not-for-profit organization currently employs more than 500 employees locally and provides services for more than 770 people. Goodwill Industries of the Coastal Empire serves 33 counties in Georgia and South Carolina and operates 12 retail locations in the region. In addition to the thrift shops, Goodwill accepts tax deductable car donations and operates an online store at shopgoodwill.com.

By | Local NewsWIRE | No Comments

(SAVANNAH, GA) – The Savannah Book Festival is proud to announce a generous financial donation of $125 from Leopold’s Ice Cream, which resulted from sales of a special Festival-inspired ice cream flavor, “SBF 30.”  A play on words alluding to the sun protection factor (SPF) in sunscreen and to Savannah’s famous sunny days, “SBF 30” was a new twist on caramel crunch, a creamy caramel with a home-made praline crunch.  Leopold’s sold more than two barrels of the one-time-only flavor “SBF 30” over several days before and during the Savannah Book Festival, February 15-20, 2011.

In addition, every single flavor of ice cream was renamed using the Festival authors’ book titles as inspiration, adding even more visibility to this fabulous, FREE literary event held in downtown Savannah during President’s Day weekend.

Stephanie Duttenhaver, board president of the Savannah Book Festival, is thrilled and honored by Leopold’s generosity: “Thanks to the wonderful folks at Leopold’s, even more people learned about our great Festival and also helped support it by buying a scoop of ‘SBF 30.’  What a fun, delicious way to help us keep this Festival FREE and open to the public!”

The Savannah Book Festival’s mission is to promote reading, writing and civil conversation.  It is now a significant event in both the literary and southeastern USA calendars, taking place before and during President’s Day weekend.  The Savannah Book Festival Inc. is an independent non-profit corporation led by a volunteer board of directors.  It is committed to remaining free and open to the public and to celebrating the written word and its role in improving the human experience.  http://www.savannahbookfestival.org/.
