Huntington, NY (PRWEB) February 13, 2012
Sportsideo, LLC (http://sportsideo.com) announced today that its unique fundraising platform, Sportsideo’s SportsQuest, has processed its first pledge payment to the Dr. Patrick J. Dineen Memorial Foundation (http://www.pjdineenfoundation.com/). The Dr. Patrick J. Dineen Foundation registered with Sportsideo on January 5, 2012, two days after Sportsideo’s Beta version launch. Supporters of the Dineen Foundation joined Sportsideo, picked the Dineen Foundation as their favorite sports organization, set personal milestones to contribute to the Foundation and invited sponsors to support their milestone by pledging money to the Foundation. Just 25 days after the Foundation registered, one of the Foundation’s supporters completed his milestone, and his sponsors’ pledges were processed by Sportsideo and paid to the Dineen Foundation.
"We are very pleased and very proud that Sportsideo’s SportsQuest has helped to accelerate the development goals of the Dr. Patrick J. Dineen Memorial Foundation,” said Steve Vesce, Managing Director of Sportsideo. “The Dineen Foundation is committed to helping children, and one of its great programs is to offer tuition scholarships to youth hockey players. It is remarkable to us that less than 30 days after we launched Sportsideo’s Beta version, a supporter of the Dineen Foundation completed his milestone, and the pledges made to this supporter by the supporter’s sponsors were processed and paid to the Dineen Foundation. Before we launched Sportsideo, we believed that Sportsideo’s SportsQuest would be very powerful tool and unique fundraising platform for Sports Foundations, Organizations, and Teams. We are really pleased that Sportsideo’s SportsQuest is realizing our vision and contributing so quickly and so easily to an organization such as the Dineen Foundation,” Vesce concluded.
Patrick Dineen Jr., the Chairman of the Dineen Foundation commented “After learning of the unique design and purpose of Sportsideo, it was a no-brainer to immediately get involved, and everyone in the Dr. Patrick J. Dineen Memorial Foundation family is thrilled to have done so. In today’s technological world, Sportsideo is a pioneer in its craft that offers year-round fundraising capabilities through their website that transforms people’s everyday physical activities into raising money towards greater causes. To have received contributions in such a short amount of time shows the efficiency of Sportsideo and proves they are equally dedicated towards helping fellow athletes and improving the lives of others, which should never have a finish line.”
