BACK TO SCHOOL AT SCHWARTZ AND ASSOCIATES!
Richie is on a roll! First, he won every category for Best of Jackson and now he is a “PINK TIE” Guy! Make sure you tell him congrats!!
Who are the “Pink Tie Guys”?
They are confident, assured business and community leaders who are, not afraid to wear pink. The 2015 Pink Tie Guys will be selected from corporate and civic leaders in the Central Mississippi Steel Magnolias Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® service area. These outstanding advocates will unite to help in the fight against breast cancer. Once a Pink Tie Guy always a Pink Tie Guy.
Breast Cancer affects everyone – in our workplace, our families and, our friends. Over the course of a lifetime one in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. It devastates spouses and partners, leaves children without mothers. It changes lives! By bringing awareness of breast cancer to the forefront of the business world, the Pink Tie Guys make a powerful statement that we must all be committed.

April 26, 2014: Old Trace Park, Ridgeland, MS
We had a pleasure hanging out with Jackson Youth For Christ bikers this past weekend. They safely completed a 16 mile trip Saturday for the annual Natchez Trace Ride. We sponsored these metro middle school and high school students so that they have the chance for a healthy, fun journey outside of their usual parameters. Their summer program will begin soon, and the group will hit the Ridgeland trails hard. As Dr. Seuss quoted, “Oh, the places you’ll go.”
April 25, 2014: NAACP Freedom Fund Banquet, Weaver Center, Corinth, MS
Last Friday night, Richard accepted the prestigious Community Service Award from the Alcorn County NAACP at the Weaver Center in Corinth. His efforts to build the backbone of various local 501c3’s did not go unnoticed. We extend a big “thank you” to the steering committee for their Freedom Fund Banquet. Some other young, future entrepreneurs were honored with $1000 merit-based scholarships to further their college educations.See More
