    Cobb Technologies recently participated in hosted a Golf Tournament raising $15,000.  Read more about it below:

    The company’s non-profit initiative teamed up with over forty businesses to raise the funds
    RICHMOND, VA - November 30, 2016 - On October 20, 2016, Cobb Technologies’ non-profit division,
    Imprint, hosted a golf tournament in support of local charity Backpacks of Love, raising $14,989.93,
    which equates to feeding 100 children for an entire year.
    The event, which was held at The Crossings in Glen Allen, featured sponsorships from over thirty local
    businesses. More than twenty companies participated in the tournament, with Tappahannock Medical
    Group taking first place. Each team contributed to the nearly $15,000 donation, which is Imprint’s
    biggest since its inception earlier in the year.
    “It took eight months of planning and lots of manpower to ensure that everything was in order and the
    event could run smoothly,” said Andrea Warren, Imprint’s Outreach Coordinator. “Our Imprint board and
    committee, marketing department, sales team, customers, sponsors, and surrounding businesses all
    contributed to the success of this event.”
    The charity, Backpacks of Love, is a Powhatan, Va.-based organization that focuses on eliminating
    hunger in school-aged children by providing bags of food for them on weekends. The organization
    began delivering the bags in 2011, and has steadily expanded its operations into surrounding counties.
    “The reason behind it is mainly to make sure these kids have nutrition through the weekend [until]
    they can get back on their school lunch programs,” said Rich Napier, president of Backpacks of Love.
    “The whole idea is that if you’ve got a child that’s not hungry, hopefully they’ll learn more in school and
    eventually break the cycle of poverty.”
    With its first large event in the books and by all means successful, Imprint will focus on its upcoming
    slate of community service endeavors. Within the next few weeks, Imprint begins the next phase of its
    long-term partnership with Backpacks of Love and will embark on other projects designed to help make
    a positive impact on children in the community.
    “We will continue our long-term partnership with Backpacks of Love as their satellite office, packing and
    distributing supplemental food bags to surrounding counties,” said Warren. “We will also be hosting a
    silent auction, and a book/food drive with a different twist. We have formed some new relationships
    with Partnerships for Families, Reach and Read, as well as our own exciting new program, Imprint
    Scholar.”
    Planning has already begun for the 2017 Imprint Golf Tournament, which Warren says is shaping up to
    be more innovative than the first tournament in terms of fundraising efforts.
    “Now that we have the first one under our belt, the groundwork has been laid,” said Warren. “Some
    fresh and fun ideas for fundraising will be implemented to raise as much money and awareness as
    possible. Our goal is to exceed our expectations by far surpassing our fundraising efforts, just as we did
    this year.”
