Local Company Helps Local Charity

December 18, 2010

A Northbrook painting and home service company has announced the first recipient of its charity award.

In August, Castino Painting and Home Services of Northbrook experienced the tragic death of 20-year employee Larry Diamond. In Diamond’s honor, owner Roger Castino established the Castino Diamond Charity Award whereby twice a year, Castino will donate $3,000 in labor and materials to a deserving charity in the Chicago area.

Man throwing money from a paint can onto a wall.The first recipient of the Castino Diamond Charity Award will be Boys Hope Girls Hope of Illinois, a non-profit group that, for the past 31 years, has offered scholarships to Chicago area children from troubled families. Their belief is that by empowering children through education, it will break the cycle of poverty that can trap families for generations.

“We are so honored to have been selected as the first recipient of the Castino Diamond Charity Award,” said Pat Hughes, Executive Director, Boys Hope Girls Hope of Illinois. “Boys Hope Girls Hope helps academically capable children who are at-risk and in-need to meet their potential by providing family-like homes, opportunities, and education through college.

“We have three 100-year-old homes in Evanston which are always in need of repair work, and we greatly appreciate the wonderful benefits this award will provide.”

Castino Painting and Home Services was founded as a painting company for the North Shore in 1974.

Today, the company provides 15 specialty services including:

*Interior and exterior painting
