Cross Country Home Services CIO Joel Steigelfest was named one of two CIOs of the Year at the 11th Annual ITWomen CIO Celebrity Poker Tournament & Casino Night held Nov. 20, 2014 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
The event is held each year to raise scholarship money for local young women who plan to pursue degrees in IT and Engineering. Last week, “Celebrity CIOs” from 28 South Florida companies were challenged to a charity game of Texas Hold’em Poker. The event raised $53,000 that can now be awarded to deserving high school graduates.
ITWomen is a not-for-profit organization based in South Florida, from Miami-Dade to Broward and Palm Beach counties. Its mission is to increase the number of girls and women in the fields of technology and engineering and to provide professional development, student education and scholarships through a supportive network.
CCHS is proud to support the local community and congratulates Joel on this recognition!
