TBL Networks 2nd Annual Virtual Golf Tournament

By Steve Glissman | Mar 21, 2011 | Blinky Fun, Insights

Techumanity is an ideal that we embrace at TBL Networks.  We often discuss this concept in terms of how technology can be used to make us more human.  Other times, we use it as a justification to play golf and raise money for a great cause.

On Friday, March 11, TBL Networks hosted our 2nd Annual Virtual Open Golf Tournament. Whereas a traditional golf tournament in March would be at the mercy of the elements, a few Nintendo Wii Systems allowed us to convert the confines of TBL Headquarters into a climate-controlled TPC Blue Monster. Using Cisco WebEx, we generated a live leader board so players could keep track of the scores. In addition, participants received the chance to check the onsite technology, including our Cisco TelePresence 1100 rooms.

This year, TBL Networks received the privilege to benefit a great organization in CJ’s Thumbs Up Foundation, better known as CJSTUF.  CJSTUF’s mission is to provide financial assistance to families of children with chronic and life-threatening illness.   CJSTUF embraces techumanity by using their blog, FaceBook and Twitter pages to raise awareness and funds for their mission.

We would to like everyone who came out to our event and contributed to our cause.  Thanks to our corporate partners Cisco, VMware and EMC for helping make our day possible. Special thanks to our local sponsors Bogeys Sports Park, Chick-fil-A Parham Rd  FSU and the Richmond Flying Squirrels.  With their help, we were able to raise $2,275 for CJSTUF.

To learn about CJSTUF, check out their website, and stay tuned to the TBL Networks Blog Home, where we will be providing more information about this great organization in coming weeks.
