2013 NVTC Golf Tournament Benefits Equal Footing Foundation and NVTC Strategic Initiatives!

On Wednesday, Oct. 3, golfers enjoyed warm, sunny weather at NVTC's Annual Golf Tournament. Held at the 1757 Golf Club in Ashburn, Va., this year's tournament benefited NVTC’s Strategic Initiatives, including the NVTC Veterans Employment Initiative, as well as the Equal Footing Foundation, NVTC's charitable arm, which provides local area students with computer access, mentoring and opportunities to explore their interests in science, technology, engineering and math through seven computer clubhouses in Fairfax and Fauquier Counties.

Teams of top golfers from the region’s technology community competed in a full day of putting and driving on the links. The tournament offered majestic views of Broad Run and the beautiful Virginia landscape, along with challenging fairways. After the tournament's end, all enjoyed a fine catered dinner.

Second-place honors went to Gerry Jepson of Capitol Battery, Zach Spees of Capitol Battery, Dan Cooper of Time Warner Cable, and Al Nielsen of AOL.
