By Liliana Ciurlino
San Diego, CA – Managed Solution, a full-service SoCal based technology firm, shook up the fundraising scene hosting a new twist on game-packed charity golf tournament Friday to benefit American Cancer Society.
More than 30 sponsors, 100 golfers and 50 guests were in attendance at the 3rd Annual event to help raise over $10,000 for cancer research. Managed Solution has officially become a presenting sponsor of their Relay for Life event being held on April 29th in Oceanside.
The golf tournament kicked off with a Helicopter Ball Drop 50/50 Raffle where a bucket of numbered golf balls were dropped from a helicopter hovering over a designated hole. Fifty percent of the proceeds were donated to American Cancer Society while the other fifty percent provided a cash prize to the winner. The winning golf ball was #73 belonging to Mike Shapiro.
Premium sponsors for the Managed Solution 3rd Annual Golf Tournament included Microsoft (Presenting Sponsor) and Jersey Mike’s (Lunch Sponsor). Other Hole Sponsors included Aberdeen Group, Block Advisors, Cisco, DLK Investment, Firstlink Communication LLC, Sharp Business Systems, Sound, Stone Brewing, StorageCraft and Wells Fargo Home Mortgage.
Managed Solution’s charity golf tournament is an annual tradition to bring together partners, customers and friends in the community as well as raise funds to promote and support educational and charitable programs. In 2015, they raised over $6K for Just in Time Foster Youth and in 2016, they raised $10K for Computers 2 San Diego Kids. This marked the second year they hosted an Online & Live Silent Auction which brought in nearly $5K.
The tournament concluded with cancer survivor, Laura Gonzales, giving a touching speech about her battle with cancer into remission and an awards reception and taco bar buffet to congratulate the tournament winners. First, second, and third place winners received invitations to play in the Randy Jones Invitational in January 2018.
