Catholic Foundation offers Investing Tips

The desire for profit sometimes trumps ethics in the business world, but one local faith organization wants to show that the two can go hand in hand.

The Orange Catholic Foundation, which is affiliated with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange, will hold its ninth annual Conference on Business and Ethics on Thursday morning at the Orange County/Costa Mesa Hilton hotel.

The half-day event will feature conservative radio talk show host Dennis Prager and Father Seamus Finn, a board member at the New York-based Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility.

Foundation Executive Director Cindy Bobruk said she expects about 350 guests at the sold-out event.

The foundation will honor two local business leaders with its Bishop Todd D. Brown Award for Exemplary Business Integrity: Jacqueline DuPont, founder and chief executive of DuPont Residential Care in San Clemente and Assured InHome Care Inc.
