Since joining Solutionz through the initial acquisition in 2015, I've witnessed the addition of eight more sales teams – seeing Solutionz evolve into something truly remarkable. The atmosphere at the 2024 SKO was electric, brimming with smiles, genuine collaboration, and, of course, lots of fun! It reaffirms that Solutionz is more than just a workplace; it's a tight-knit community where everyone is genuinely happy to contribute and be part of something greater. Witnessing our team thriving and united towards our common goals is incredibly inspiring. Proud to be part of Solutionz!”- Jill Armand. 

AV Technology Vendor Fair

The addition of the Golf for Hope event gives even more meaning to be able to help such a worthy cause!”-  Art Foxall, Territory Sales Manager at Legrand AV.

Continuing the Tradition of Giving Back

Following the excitement of the sales conference, Solutionz, Inc. hosted the 9th Annual Golf for Hope charity tournament, raising $150,000 in donations for City of Hope, a non-profit cancer research facility dedicated to providing treatments and cures for cancer, diabetes, and other life-threatening diseases. This event, initially launched in 2015 by Spinitar, has become a symbol of hope, collectively raising nearly $1 million to aid individuals and families affected by critical illnesses.

Guests enjoyed a day at Lookout Mountain Golf Club where they got to engage in various contest holes, including a thrilling cannonball launcher, an exciting longest-drive and closest to the pin competition, in addition to a hole-in-one contest with a grand prize of $1,000. Attendees also had the opportunity to win other prizes throughout the day, including special raffle prizes donated by the event sponsors.

“Once again, Golf for Hope, coupled with the Solutionz Vendor Fair, set the bar. The opportunity to connect with industry colleagues and partners and have real conversations regarding the audiovisual challenges we face is essential to the success of the higher ed vertical. Thank you to Solutionz for your dedication to our industry and for providing that opportunity for us in higher education to come together under your leadership. And... it’s all the better when we get to help raise funds for such a worthy cause! We can’t wait to support you all again in the coming years.” - Joe Way, HETMA Chair and Co-founder.

After a fun-filled day of playing 18 holes amidst the breathtaking scenery of the cacti-filled Sonoran desert and the lush Phoenix North Mountains, guests gathered for a captivating cocktail and dinner reception. The evening featured a special guest speaker, Krissy Kobata, who shared her powerful story of overcoming a life-threatening illness with the support of City of Hope.

“Our sincere thanks to Bill Warnick, Barry Green, Katie Rogina, and the entire team at Solutionz for hosting our 9th Annual Golf for Hope!  Nowhere in Phoenix could the spirit of camaraderie, compassion, and generosity have been more palpable than on March 6 at Lookout Mountain, with the event setting an all-time fundraising record of $150,000 in support of life-saving cancer and diabetes research and treatment at City of Hope. What truly sets Golf for Hope apart is the spirit of everyone involved – everyone unified in wanting to make a difference in the lives of people who need it most.  Again, thanks to the entire Solutionz team for their outstanding support, and we look forward to breaking more records together next year for our 10th annual Golf for Hope!” - Andy Ishii, Director, Corporate Philanthropy at City of Hope.

Following Solutionz's acquisition of Spinitar in 2022, the Solutionz, Inc. team is grateful and excited to carry forward this meaningful tradition, uniting the AV community in a collective effort to make a lasting impact.
