Julie Plunkett, vice president of Capco Steel Inc., has been appointed to the committee of the Jared Michael Tennis Tournament, a fundraiser to benefit Any Baby Can of San Antonio, Texas. Founded in 1982, Any Baby Can is a charitable organization providing assistance to children up to 12 years of age who suffer chronic illness, developmental disabilities, abuse, neglect, poverty or other disadvantages.
Any Baby Can believes all children can reach their potential through education, therapy and family-support services. Each year, the agency serves more than 6,000 of the youngest, sickest and poorest children in the Central Texas area. It also supports families with prevention and intervention strategies, advocacy and support, community-based family literacy, tutoring, parenting education, and childbirth classes.
The tennis tournament is held annually in memory of Jared Michael Abelow, who died before reaching his dream of helping children in need. Abelow died in July 2006. He had served four years in the U.S. military and was attending college to become a teacher.
Plunkett has volunteered to assist the tournament since its first event in 2007. A dinner fundraiser for the tournament will be held on Oct. 16 in San Antonio.
Capco Steel has provided steel framing systems, metal roofing, metal wall-cladding systems, specialty metals and pre-engineered metal buildings to the self-storage industry for 25 years.
