The Thomas A. Demetrio Award of Excellence will be awarded to Minds Matter Chicago at the Lawyers Lend-A-Hand to Youth Annual Spring Benefit on May 28, 2015.

CHICAGO, IL, USA, May 11, 2015 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Thomas A. Demetrio Award of Excellence, created and supported by Thomas A. Demetrio through Lawyers Lend-A-Hand to Youth, will be given to the Chicago chapter of Minds Matter, a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to help high school students from low-income families prepare for college success through mentoring and tutoring.

"The good work that the dedicated volunteers at Minds Matter perform is having a profound effect on the lives of Chicago’s underprivileged children, and so it is very deserving of this award," Thomas Demetrio said.

Demetrio created the Lawyers Lend-A-Hand Award of Excellence in 1994 while he was President of the Chicago Bar Association. Each year, he funds the award, which recognizes outstanding youth mentoring programs.

The Lawyers Lend-A-Hand to Youth Program, which administers the award, was created by The Chicago Bar Association and the Chicago Bar Foundation in 1995 in dedication of the lasting memory and generosity of the Honorable Judge Abraham Lincoln Marovitz.
