As you can see from these pictures, we had an enjoyable time celebrating and networking with other ‘movers and shakers’ in DFW.
Ed Trachier, CEO of OnTarget Partners, and Chairman of Business Solutions Group, stated “We are proud once again to be recognized by the Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University as one of the fastest growing businesses in North Texas. The credit for this award, and all of the recognition we receive, belongs to the great Associates we work with who believe in the vision of BSG, and produce the results that are valuable for our clients.

OnTarget Partners had a great time supporting the Charity Community Partners of Dallas recently.
Community Partners of Dallas is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring safety and restoring dignity and hope to abused and neglected children by providing resources and support to the caseworkers of Dallas County Child Protective Services.
Community Partners of Dallas served more than 16,000 children last year through six unique programs:
- Rainbow Room, an emergency resource center providing critically-needed items for children in the care of CPS
- Kids in Crisis, provides funds for children’s clothing, transportation, therapy, enrichment activities, housing and medical expenses
- Adopt-A-Caseworker, connects individuals and businesses with CPS caseworkers to help them meet the needs of clients
- The Heart Program, an internationally-recognized program that provides therapeutic group treatment to victims of sexual-abuse and their non-offending family members
- Caseworker Appreciation, events that are held to show appreciation and gratitude to caseworkers
- StoryLine, (214) 446-2222, a phone line that children can call 24 hours a day to hear a story
As a result of its broad-based community support, Community Partners of Dallas was named the Outstanding Volunteer Organization of the Year by the Volunteer Center in Dallas. In addition, Governors Bush and Richards appointed two of our founding members to the Board of Texas Department of Protective and Regulatory Services. Community Partners of Dallas’ programs have been replicated across the state, and Rainbow Rooms and Adopt-A-Caseworker programs currently exist in more than 135 cities in Texas. For more detail on the children we serve please download our 2010 Fact Sheet.

Thanks, James, for a job well done!
Our second sponsored event is one near and dear to our hearts. It is called Kenna’s Cup. Kenna is a little girl born with a form of craniosynostosis where the metopic suture running from her soft spot down to her nose was abnormally fused shut. Her condition, however, was not immediately recognized at birth. Her parents were assured this condition was not a major issue and would fix itself in a two year timeframe. Many visits to many doctors and her parents’ instinct were unfortunately correct; Kenna had a serious skull deformity. Kenna will endure numerous surgeries and treatments to ensure her brain has room to grow in her skull throughout her lifetime.
Kenna’s Kids is a foundation that provides funding for the hundreds of thousands of dollars incurred when a family has a child with a serious illness. Check out the website and read the heart wrenching stories of all of Kenna’s Kids. Kenna’s Cup is one of their biggest fundraisers and since a fun day of golf and food and drink is provided a great win-win for everyone who participates.
OnTarget Partners will be a sponsor of this benevolent event this year, and we are very proud to say we are involved with Kenna’s Kids. Join us in helping these kids and their families and play a round or two of golf while you are doing so.
Our first event is scheduled for May 4th, 2011. OnTarget Partners will be joining Texas Trees to assist in their goals to “green up” Texas. We are so happy to join forces with Texas Trees – the largest forestry organization the United States. We are pleased to support their efforts in planting three million trees in North Texas in the next ten years. This effort will contribute to the replacing the balance of clean air and natural forestry in the area. We have partnered our efforts with other organizations through the Entrepreneurial Foundation of North Texas and together we will combine the efforts of our companies to expedite the tree planting at Richland College 12800 Abrams Road, Dallas Tx. This event will run from 9am to 12 noon and the entire company will be pitching in! Learn more about this event at: Texas Trees Foundation or Entrepreneurs for North Texas. The company will enjoy lunch afterward before heading back to the office for the afternoon. Stay tuned for pictures!
Working at a company that promotes VTO (Volunteer Time Off) is a real honor. It is a very rewarding experience to be a component of such a good corporate citizen while helping our environment.
