COX CHARITIES, a charitable giving initiative of COX COMMUNICATIONS, will host its first benefit concert on SATURDAY, JULY 17 at 7p at CHRYSLER HALL in NORFOLK, VA. The concert features R&B artists BRIAN MCKNIGHT and ROBIN THICKE.
Proceeds from the concert will benefit COX CHARITIES. COX CHARITIES provides funding, through a competitive grant process, to organizations which further the academic achievement and development of young people in our local communities.
"Through our 2009 COX CHARITIES grant process, we were able to fund programs giving more than $85,000 in grants to nine great non-profits. The programs provided by these organizations range from youth mentoring services, to academic services for low-income and at-risk youth, to early childhood education initiatives," said COX/VIRGINIA SVP/GM GARY MCCOLLUM.
