NTT America Sponsors VeriSign Spring Charity Golf Tournament
New York, NY – NTT America, a wholly owned U.S. subsidiary of NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) and a global IP network services provider, today announced the company will sponsor the 2009 VeriSign Spring Charity Golf Tournament, which will be held Thursday, May 21st, 2009 at the Stoneleigh Golf Club in Round Hill, VA.
The event, hosted by NTT America customer VeriSign, Inc. (NASDAQ: VRSN), the trusted provider of Internet infrastructure services for the networked world, will benefit the Junior League of Northern Virginia (JLNV), an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
With offices in Sterling, VA and Vienna, VA, NTT America looks forward to supporting the local event. “We are honored to sponsor a tournament with a history of corporate community support,” said Michael Wheeler, vice president of sales and business development, Global IP Network Business Unit of NTT America. “In addition to our annual employee fundraising and corporate matching drive with the American Red Cross and the United Way, this event represents another great opportunity for us to help raise awareness of local charitable needs for such a respected national organization.”
The tournament, which is held each spring and fall, has generated proceeds of more than $30,000 over the past two years. Funds raised have been used to assist Junior League of Northern Virginia community programs such as providing physicals, immunizations and school supplies to hundreds of uninsured children, and to assist monthly children’s programs at local homeless shelters. Proceeds from the 2009 tournament will be used to support similar programs in the coming year.
“The tournament donations have played a critical part in advancing our mission and, more specifically, our efforts to provide meaningful programs that prepare children in Northern Virginia for success,” said Tamara Ashford, president, Junior League of Northern Virginia.
The event, open to VeriSign employees and sponsors, will feature tee-gifts, prizes, and a dinner and awards ceremony.
