Managed Solution Celebrates Holiday Season by Supporting Local Non-Profits

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]San Diego, CA, December 11, 2018, – The holiday season is here, and the Managed Solution team is excited to give back to the community during the holidays. We work with a number of local Non-Profits and love supporting their cause as we see them making a difference in our community.

This holiday season we supported several Non-Profit organizations with our donations. Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank provides nutritious food to people in need, advocates for the hungry, and educates the public about hunger-related issues. For several years now we have been donating to them and this year our employees and company donations summed up to more than fifteen thousand meals for those in need. We are extremely proud of our team and their generosity.

Susan Kuruvilla, CEO of Managed Solution, was a host at this year’s Teddy Ball, a black tie charity celebration organized by Cruise 4 Kids, a Non-Profit organization that collects new stuffed teddy bears to donate to sick and needy children at several children's hospitals, youth organizations, and special needs service centers.

Computers 2 Kids San Diego is another organization we have been collaborating with for years and this December we prepared a pile of used computers and other IT equipment for them. We also donated over 100 of our retro coffee mugs to several Non-Profits in San Diego that we work with on a regular basis, so they can share them with their community.

Managed Solution hopes that these small acts of giving back to the community brought an extra smile or two on the faces of people we share our community with, and we wish everyone warm and happy holidays.

Managed Solution Supports Foster Teens Heading to College

Managed Solution Prepares 55 Laptops and Donates IT Support to Foster Teens Heading to College

San Diego, CA, June 16, 2018– For ten years now, Managed Solution, a full-service Southern California based technology firm, has supported transitioning foster youth in the Just in Time College Bound Program by preparing laptops for 55 students to help them excel in college, along with providing the help desk services they may need on their journey through higher education.

Over the past few weeks, the Managed Solution team has been preparing laptops with imaging applications and security updates to get them ready for distribution to youth at the Annual College Bound Award Day, June 16, 2018. This year, the Managed Solution team was honored to distribute laptops to 55 youth, who received essential resources to help them succeed in their first year in college.

“It is such a heart-warming experience to see these youth, who have faced so much before the age of 18 feel like they now have a support system and family called the JIT community,” says Jennell Mott, Vice President of Cloud and Vendor Operations at Managed Solution.

“I am proud to say that we are currently servicing over 500 local foster youth, offering them our help desk support, and by that we hopefully help them to successfully begin a new life chapter as college students and continue their path to become confident, capable and connected,” Mott added.

Founder of Managed Solution, Sean Ferrel, added: “As a local provider of technology services and solutions, we feel strongly about being involved in the community and we are proud to be able to continue to help further the cause of this great organization for the past 10 years.”

SoCal Tech Firm Shakes up Traditional Fund Raising; Slams $10k Goal for Cancer Research

SoCal Tech Firm Shakes up Traditional Fund Raising; Slams $10k Goal for Cancer Research

golf tournament
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.
