DETROIT, MI / ACCESSWIRE / August 16, 2022 / Global Telecom Solutions (GTS) returned once again to the Detroit Athletic Club (DAC) for its Annual Open House, drawing technology representatives from regional and national companies.
More than 200 people from over 30 companies took part in the open house, which included technology exhibits and several industry awards presented by GTS to its partners. GTS's own CEO, Mark Stackpoole, served as this year's keynote speaker.
This is the second time the DAC has hosted the annual event, that brings together "cloud" and telecommunications providers from across the nation. Now in its 8th year, the open house is centered on networking and business development.
During the open house, which draws many in-person charity donations, Detroit-based GTS announced $20,000 in donations to two area nonprofits. This year Camp Casey, located in Farmington Hills, Mich., received $10,000 while Alternatives for Girls, located in Detroit, was presented a check for $10,000.
Molly Reeser from Camp Casey is excited to receive a $10,000 donation at the GTS Open House from Mark Stackpoole, GTS CEO.
"I am absolutely blown away by the support GTS has shown Camp Casey over the years," says Molly Reeser, Camp Casey's Founder/Executive Director. "Though our program numbers continue to grow -- we're serving more kids than ever before! -- with GTS's help we've been able to stay in the saddle and will not have to turn down a single applicant!"
A $10,00 donation was presented at the GTS Open House by GTS CEO Mark Stackpoole to Cecile Aitchison from Alternatives for Girls
"With GTS's support, AFG can continue to expand and strengthen critical programming that is an investment in the girls and young women we serve," said Cecile Aitchison, Chief Development Officer of Alternatives For Girls. "AFG's services are unique in providing long-term, individually responsive support to those that seek our services, and our partners like GTS help us make an even larger impact."
