Springfield, MA (PRWEB) March 10, 2010
VCI Solutions, a provider of software solutions for broadcast and cable operations, announced it is sponsoring the building of a house in the silver lot of the Las Vegas Convention Center during the 2010 NAB Show. VCI Solutions has partnered with NAB and Habitat for Humanity Las Vegas to frame a house during the show. The project is titled “The Build 2010 House Project.”
Starting Sunday, April 11, 2010, attendees of the NAB Show will have the opportunity to participate in building a house in the silver lot directly outside of the main entrance of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Volunteers will continue to build through Wednesday, April 14th, when a joint ribbon cutting ceremony with the three organizations and the designated family takes place. Information on volunteering and donating can be found on the VCI Solutions website: http://www.vcisolutions.com/build2010.
The standard-sized Habitat for Humanity house will be moved after the show to a pre-poured foundation so that it can be finished out and sold to a working family that will reside in the home.
This project is the essence of what VCI Solutions represents. Deanna Kennedy, Director of Marketing Communications for VCI Solutions, said, “We are thrilled to be partnering with NAB and Habitat for Humanity Las Vegas for the ‘Build 2010 House Project.’ As a company, we are committed to building partnerships for a better community. We do this both through our company volunteer efforts and our commitment to customers. Our customers in broadcast and cable are building better communities on a daily basis with their public service efforts. This is a way for us to showcase that.”
