And the Award Goes to…

September 27, 2011

…the Police Athletic League of Jacksonville (PAL)! BroadBased is excited to announce PAL of Jacksonville has been chosen to receive our 2012 non-profit partner award, which includes a $25,000 donation of marketing, design and public relations support.

“It was a competitive process,” said Jan Korb, BroadBased’s owner and CEO. “Our entire staff is very much looking forward to working with the team at PAL. We decided a couple of years ago we could make a more significant impact in the non-profit community by dedicating our resources to one organization a year instead of donating bits and pieces to many.”

The Police Athletic League is a non-profit 501(c)(3) youth-serving organization working with the cooperative effort of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. PAL, in an effort to reduce juvenile crime and instill positive values, character and leadership skills, provides safe activities for Jacksonville youth. Its athletic and educational programs emphasize positive interaction with law enforcement officers and other adult role models.

Reneé Naughton, Managing Director of PAL, said, “PAL is so honored and grateful to be selected for this award. This generous donation clearly shows what a caring company BroadBased is. The true beneficiaries of this community partnership will be the 2,800 at-risk children served by the Police Athletic League.”
