For the past several years, Telecom Ramblings has been a proud sponsor of a charity golf tournament raising money for the Mighty Oakes Heart Foundation. Originally held by PEG Bandwidth and continued by Uniti Fiber, they'll be holding the fifth annual such event this autumn.
The Mighty Oakes Foundation raises money to support families of children born with congenital heart defects and to further research aimed at better treatments. It's named in honor of Oakes Lee Ortyl, the son of one of our industry's own families, Becky and Greg Ortyl, and this tournament is an opportunity to do something for such a worthy cause.
Attendees of the tournament have grown to include movers and shakers from throughout the telecom and infrastructure sectors, from vendors to carriers to data center to software to cloud. But it could really use more, and hence this weekend article of support. If Telecom Ramblings can sponsor a hole, then any company or organization from this sector can! If your company is willing to be a sponsor, please reach out to Jillian.Fitzgerald@uniti.com.
Or if you’d just like to play some golf for a great cause and get to know a fantastic group of people as well, then just sign up here.
The event will take place on November 8, 2017 at the Cowboys Golf Club in Grapevine, Texas starting at 12:30pm.
