Beltsville, MD (PRWEB) December 17, 2013
Vocus, Inc. (NASDAQ: VOCS), a leading provider of cloud-based marketing and public relations software, today announced its Presenting Sponsorship of the Maryland Sports Radio Network Military Bowl Broadcast on Dec. 27, 2013. Presented by Northrop Grumman, the Military Bowl is an annual, post-season NCAA football game that benefits the United Service Organizations (USO). The University of Maryland Terrapins play the Thundering Herd of Marshall University at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md. The game will be broadcast in Washington, DC on 980 WTEM-AM and in the Baltimore region on both 105.7 WJZ-FM and 1300 WJZ-AM.
Under the leadership of Chief Executive Officer Rick Rudman, a former Air Force Sergeant, Vocus is proud to support its service members and veterans through this sponsorship. Funds raised from the bowl game help thousands of military personnel and their families through a partnership with the USO. Last year, the Military Bowl donated $100,000 to the organization and provided more than 5,000 game tickets for service members and their families.
“As a veteran, I look forward to the Military Bowl every year,” said Rudman. “It is a privilege to be part of this great event. We hope attendees will enjoy the game and learn more about Vocus. We are always looking for men and women who’ve served our country to join the Vocus team.”
Before kickoff, Vocus will co-host an invite-only tailgate party with MillerCoors from noon to 2 p.m. EST. Tailgaters will have the opportunity to network and learn about career opportunities from University of Maryland alum and Senior Vice President of North American Sales Norman Weissberg.
