Marietta, GA (PRWEB) April 21, 2014
The gala is planned for Saturday, May 3, 2014, at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis and will draw a who’s who crowd from Atlanta’s technology and business communities to celebrate the impact of philanthropy and technology on Atlanta’s nonprofits. All proceeds benefit TechBridge, a nonprofit that drives community impact by bringing affordable business and technology expertise to other nonprofits.
The 2014 Digital Ball will be co-chaired by Karen Renner, CIO, Novelis, and Bill VanCuren, CIO, NCR. “The Digital Ball series of events brings together an unrivaled group of Atlanta’s technology leaders. The funds raised by the Ball combined with the goods, services and expertise of this generous IT community enable TechBridge to impact hundreds of nonprofits, who touch millions of people,” said Renner. “I am proud to serve as a TechBridge Board Member and look forward to welcoming you to the Digital Ball.”
“TechBridge is making a difference by connecting the needs of nonprofits with the skills and resources of the technology community,” said VanCuren. “As a global tech company that believes in giving back, NCR is a proud supporter of TechBridge and the annual Digital Ball. We commend TechBridge’s efforts to use innovative approaches to help people and communities become self-sufficient. I encourage you to join us in building this community and celebrating technology at the Digital Ball.”
Accenture will once again serve as Presenting Sponsor of the Digital Ball and Technology Innovation Award, carrying on the tradition it began in 2001.
“Accenture is excited to continue our long-standing relationship with TechBridge as we return for our 14th year as the presenting sponsor of the Digital Ball. We look forward to another great year of helping nonprofits creatively use technology to fulfill their missions, become high performance organizations and dramatically increase their impact,” said Craig Ramsey, managing director, Accenture.
