CHICAGO — A non-profit organization that helps inner-city students is honoring Cook County Sheriff Thomas Dart.

Minds Matter of Chicago says Dart has a commitment to education and has tried to ensure a bright future for Chicago youth.

The organization was founded in 2006 and serves dozens of students from low-income families by providing help with college preparation.

An awards ceremony is scheduled for Friday at the Chicago Cultural Center. It’s the group’s fifth annual gala event.

Proceeds will go to helping students. Last year a silent auction at the event raised $40,000.
