Based in Pompano Beach, Florida, Giannetti Contracting is a third generation company that has grown to take on multimillion dollar construction projects in the public and private sectors. Specializing in underground utilities and excavation, Giannetti Contracting has constructed water and sewage systems for neighborhoods and cities to accommodate thousands of residents. In the past, Giannetti Contracting has also sponsored a golf tournament benefiting the S.P.A.C.E. Scholars.

Located in Ogoli-Ipangbo, Nigeria, the Saint Philemon Academic Center for Excellence (S.P.A.C.E.) helps educate 200 children and provide guidance and support to its teachers and volunteers. Funded through Healing Hearts Outreach in Michigan, S.P.A.C.E. students learn basic skills in reading, writing, and math, and are also taught English as a second language.

S.P.A.C.E. facilitates a Student Sponsorship Program in which a $50 donation can provide resources to a child receiving an education. In return, the donor will receive a photo, name, grade, and contact information of the person they are sponsoring, enabling them to keep in touch.
