This grassroots foundation was established with a mission to assist support programs that drive innovation in unparalleled care and family support. SoundConnect and its team members, Greg Plum & David Sessa, joined in the fun and came out in support of the Nicholas Blanco Foundation at this years event.
This is the 6th Annual Golf Invitational we have held to benefit organizations that have been instrumental in my sons care, says Blanco. Cumulatively we have raised over $40,000 for children with severe brain injuries. I am honored and humbled to be able to give back to the organizations that have been so supportive of so many families, including mine. In January of this year I started working with the SoundConnect team. They have encouraged and contributed to this cause that is so dear to my heart. Blanco stated, When SoundConnect hired me; they prided themselves on being a family first company. By supporting the foundation in my sons name, it reaffirms that I am where I am supposed to be, and SoundConnect is truly a family first company. I could not be happier or more grateful for my companys support and for the contribution the SoundConnect team made to make this event the most successful fundraiser we have had so far.
