Event Marks Another Commendable Effort For Company's Philanthropic Initiative: Involta Cares
TUCSON, Ariz. — May 4, 2022 — Involta, an industry-leading hybrid IT, cloud computing, and data center services company, is pleased to announce the company will host its inaugural Cinco De Mayo Golf Tournament to support the Southern Arizona Center Against Sexual Assault (SACASA) on May 5, 2022. The event will be co-hosted with Lambda Lambda Lambda, Tucson’s technology networking group and held at the Skyline Country Club, set high in the mountains above Tucson.
SACASA provides crisis services, advocacy, support, therapy and education for individuals and families impacted by sexual trauma. The organization offers a safe place for survivors to heal, gain strength, learn coping skills, and develop trusting, caring relationships.
“We could not be more appreciative of Involta’s support for our community and cause,” states Katlyn Monje, Director of SACAS. “The company has pledged not only monetarily, but its full support to our mission of helping survivors heal. We are looking forward to this annual Golf Tournament as a new way to help raise the funds needed to support the many sexual trauma survivors in Southern Arizona.”
Sexual violence is more common than most people realize in Southern Arizona and beyond, which is why Involta embarked on this mission to support victims. Every 68 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted, according to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network.
“Involta is deeply committed to community support and involvement in Tucson and across all the markets that we serve,” comments Jim Buie, President of Involta. “We are honored to be able to play a small role in helping sexual trauma survivors by supporting such a meaningful and impactful organization leading this local effort.”
Registration begins at 10:30 am MST, with a shotgun tee time at noon, followed by a Cinco de Mayo after-fiesta at 5 pm MST.
This initiative is the latest effort in the company’s robust Involta Cares initiative, a philanthropic community involvement program spanning across its national markets. Recently, Involta Cares celebrated International Data Center Day with Sue Sedrel, Involta’s VP of Human Resources, spending the afternoon mentoring girls as part of Pinellas Chapter of Girls, Inc.’s Full STEAM Ahead program. In December, employees raised more than $13,000 to help a family in Duluth, Minnesota, have the Best Christmas Ever. Last August, Involta took part in Planting Forward, a project to replace trees damaged or destroyed in the 2020 derecho storm that swept through Iowa and parts of the Midwest. And during the height of the pandemic, Involta spearheaded Operation Linking Loved Ones to help residents of long-term care facilities communicate virtually with loved ones who could not visit.
The company’s commitment and passion for serving have made Involta Cares a great success that will continue to benefit multiple causes and communities.
