$30,000 awarded to local area charities.
Each year, Information Transport Solutions, Inc. (ITS) holds a charity golf tournament to support local charities. The event draws hundreds of participants and receives support from ITS, its vendors, and its customers. ITS employees run the tournament as a way to give back to the community – a core value at the company.
At this year’s tournament, $30,000 was raised and distributed to four deserving charities. The Family Sunshine Center is a domestic violence support center with the goal of ending family violence and sexual assault and fostering hope and healing. The Coosa Outdoor Worship Spot is a 15,000 sq. ft. facility with dorms, a gym, and a worship area; it is used for church camps and special events. The Imagination Library provides books directly to the homes of Elmore County children to foster a love of reading and increase literacy. The Jason Michael Hilty Scholarship Fund is a college fund for graduating Wetumpka High School students.
“ITS is known for its charitable efforts and incredibly generous employees,” said ITS President Quincy Minor. “We are glad to once again help these remarkable charities that are making a difference in our communities.”
The donations were raised at ITS’s 9th Annual Charity Golf Tournament, held on May 21, 2015, at the Robert Trent Jones golf course in Prattville, Alabama. 100% of the profits from the golf tournament were donated to charity. ITS employees and business partners also contributed their time in support of the tournament.
“A community is only as good as what people put into it,” stated ITS CEO Steve Meany. “That is why our company is not only focused on creating connections but also giving back.”
The 10th Annual ITS Charity Golf Tournament will be held on May 12, 2016, at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Course in Prattville, Ala.
