ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Planned Systems International, Inc. (PSI), a leading provider of Health IT solutions to the federal government, is pleased to announce that all of the proceeds from its 17th Annual Golf Invitational at Argyle Country Club in Silver Spring, MD have been donated to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Special Love, a nonprofit organization benefitting children with cancer and their families.
Over 140 players came out for a great day of golf to raise funds for cancer victims and their families. Contributions raised from the October 17th event totaled $25,758. With PSI's 100% matching donation, a total of $51,516 was collected. Of this amount, $26,598 was donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and $24,918 was donated to Special Love. The checks were presented by CEO Terry Lin to both charities at PSI's Arlington, VA office on November 4th.
"From our very first PSI charity golf tournament to today, our mission has been to give back to the community and bring our Government customers, partners and colleagues together to raise money for a very worthy cause," said Mr. Lin. "We greatly appreciate and thank all who participated for helping to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate."
Beth Prensky, Campaign Director for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS), said, "LLS is honored to be chosen as a charity choice for the 2014 PSI Golf Tournament and extremely grateful to the entire leadership team and staff at PSI for planning this important event. PSI is a unique and valued partner – funding cancer cures, while creating a legacy by inspiring others to do the same!"
Dave Smith, CEO of Special Love, said, "The impact of PSI's generous support cannot be overstated. It was enough to fully fund two of our weekend retreats for patients and families, providing them with much-needed hope and healing. It is a privilege to partner with PSI to provide such an important service to these kids and families."
