Attend Upcoming Fundraiser to Benefit Homeless Students at D211 Oct 24, 2014 7:41 AM
During the 2012/2013 school year, District 211 Superintendent Dan Cates estimates that 200 students were in fact, homeless. So far this this school year, 170 students are experiencing the same hardship. According to Cates, officials predict the number of homeless students attending one of the seven District 211 high schools - which include Palatine, Fremd, Hoffman Estates, Conant, Schaumburg and two alternative high schools - will again exceed 200 by the end of the school year. Given that families often do not report homelessness due to shame or embarrassment, the actual number of homeless students is suspected to be even higher. WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP: To combat the issue that became evident several years ago, a group of realtors joined forces in 2011 to provide assistance to students who go without one of the most basic human needs: a consistent place they can call home. They group is named Realtors Against Homelessness (R.A.H.). R.A.H. chose to do something proactive to address the problem. The organization, which is an affiliate of the D211 Foundation (a 501(c)(3)), has held fundraisers for the past three years to provide a number of immediate supports to homeless students and their families. To date, more than $50,000 has been raised by R.A.H., and all proceeds from the events are donated to District 211. The money is then allocated to school social workers who work directly with the students. The 4th annual R.A.H. Fundraiser will be held on Thursday, November 6, 2014 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Chandler’s Banquets, 401 N. Roselle Road in Schaumburg. The event will include an appetizer buffet, desserts, cash bar, raffles, a silent and live auction, and entertainment. Tickets are $40 and all are encouraged to attend to support this very worthy cause. For more information, or to purchase your ticket online, visit www.RAH211.com or call Cindy Eich at 847-255-1000. The homeless classification comes from the federal government, and includes an array of living situations that all result in the same experience: these young people do not have a stable place to call home. Many times these students live in shelters, stay at a friend’s house, or even sleep in vehicles. About R.A.H. and its Founders: Realtors Against Homelessness (R.A.H.) was founded in August of 2011 by ten local realtors who work for a variety of area real estate offices. They joined together with a mission to provide support to the growing number of homeless students attending District 211 schools. By increasing awareness and fundraising efforts, R.A.H. has been able to positively impact the lives of homeless students. Homeless Designation from the Federal Government: According to federal laws, students are considered homeless if they lack a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence, share housing with other persons due to housing loss resulting from economic hardship, or if they are unaccompanied youth, including students who are unable to live in their home and are forced to find alternate shelter. R.A.H. Founding members include: Gail Bergstrom Sandie Boxleitner Bobus Maureen Brand Cindy Eich Marty Eich Sue Gould Maria Radwan Greg Smith Stephanie Szigetvari Basel Tarabein

Arlington Heights based electronic design firm Silicon Engines launches new, updated website Oct 23, 2014 12:06 PM
Celebrating their 25th anniversary of electronic design engineering, Silicon Engines has officially launched their new website. The new website is streamlined to separate Silicon Engines’ services division from their products division, allowing users to more easily access Silicon Engines’ services and capabilities information. A favorite of Silicon Engines’ website visitors, the News section will remain at siliconengines.net and continue to offer current and original content about electrical engineering and trends in the electrical engineering industry. Jeana Salomone, Strategy Consultant at ITS Marketing NOW and brand developer for Silicon Engines, noted the old site was trying to do too much. “Silicon Engines has two offerings – their services and their data converter products. But folks coming to their website usually want one or the other, not both, so we needed to simplify the message. To do that, we spun off the data converters to their own shopping site at automotivedataconverters.com and positioned Silicon Engines as the go-to site for information about their company, allowing visitors to take a deeper dive into the electrical engineering design industry. And this site redesign makes it easier for Silicon Engines staff to easily update their content and keep the site fresh for their visitors.” ABOUT SILICON ENGINES Silicon Engines is a full-service electronic design engineering company offering comprehensive electronic design, prototyping, testing, technical marketing, and manufacturing services. Our principals and associates have been engaged professionally in the design and manufacture of custom products for commercial and industrial customers since 1975. Silicon Engines was incorporated in the State of Illinois in 1989. Visit www.siliconengines.net for more information about Silicon Engines.
