Pivot Point International, Inc. sadly announced the passing of Corrine Passage Bernin, 50, the only daughter of Pivot Point founder Leo Passage, who passed away on May 11, 2011.
Corrine was Senior Vice President, Production and Systems Development until her death, having joined teh publishing department soon after her graduation from college.
She will perhaps be best remembered for “Pivot Point Cares for Kids,” a well-known program inaugurated in 1997 that has raised more than $1 million for The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) through nationally-organized Cut-A-Thons performed by Pivot Point beauty students.
“Corrine was extremely proud of her work in the Evanston community and across the country. She was instrumental in creating a company culture where community service is just as much apart of our focus as customer service,” noted Pivot Point CEO, Karen Wilkin-Donachie. “We are dedicated to continue her efforts with the same spirit and tenacity she exemplified for us.”
Services are planned for Tuesday, May 22 at St Nicholas Church in Evanston, IL.
