Marlborough, MA (PRWEB) October 27, 2009
Altico Advisors, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner headquartered in Massachusetts, joined 5 other New England based technology companies last week to sponsor the 5th Annual Charity Golf Tournament at the New England Country Club in Bellingham, Massachusetts. All of the proceeds from the event were donated to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
On October 13th, 102 intrepid golfers teed off in the pouring rain, which continued all day, to raise money for a good cause. Since its founding in 1947, Dana-Farber has been committed to providing cancer patients with the best treatment available today while developing tomorrow's cures through cutting-edge research. The mission of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is to provide expert, compassionate care to children and adults with cancer while advancing the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, cure, and prevention of cancer and related diseases. The Institute employs nearly 4,000 people supporting more than 250,000 patient visits a year, is involved in some 700 clinical trials, and is internationally renowned for its blending of research and clinical excellence.
Commenting on the day's events, Altico Advisors President, Mike Kean, noted: "We got really, really wet. But no one complained. It was golf for a cause so we all made the best of it. It's great to see that kind of spirit in a group of corporate people making time for an activity that doesn't directly contribute to their businesses."
The tournament is organized annually by New Horizons Computer Learning Centers.
