Ingram Micro Raises More Than $225,000 at 18th Annual East Coast Charity Golf Tournament

Technology Distributor's Associates and Manufacturer Partners Tee Off for Charity

BUFFALO, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 14, 2013) - In support of the Buffalo community, Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM) and its associates are pleased to announce they raised more than $225,000 at the company's 18th Annual East Coast Charity Golf Tournament, which took place earlier this month at The Links at Ivy Ridge in Akron, N.Y. The annual fundraising event benefited five local charities. Each nonprofit received between $15,000 and $40,000 and plans to use the donations as follows:

"Ingram Micro has always been committed to giving back to our community, and this golf tournament is a fun way to get our associates involved in that," said Marty Battaglia, senior sales director for Ingram Micro U.S. and the event organizer. "Each of these charities has had an impact on an Ingram Micro associate, friend or family member."

This year's event featured more than 150 registered golfers, comprised of Ingram Micro associates and manufacturers, as well as 50 Ingram Micro volunteers. The tournament is sponsored by 55 of Ingram Micro's manufacturer partners, including Add-On Computer, Juniper, CoreTrans Logistics, Ergotron, Wells Fargo, Cisco and HP-ESSN.

In addition to the golf tournament, Ingram Micro held two auctions in conjunction with the event. The first, a pre-event auction, was held for associates on July 18 and 19 and raised more than $10,000. The second was held on the day of the golf tournament and featured more than 100 donated items from Ingram Micro's manufacturers, as well as the local community. Proceeds from both auctions were donated to the event's charity beneficiaries.

"We're overwhelmed by the amount of support we've received from our associates, partners and community," Battaglia said. "The funds raised will go a long way in helping us support these nonprofit organizations and positively influence the community in which we work and live. It was a great event and we look forward to what the future brings for each of these charities."

Ingram Micro's Annual East Coast Charity Golf Tournament began in 1995 and has cumulatively raised more than $1.2 million for approximately 25 different nonprofit organizations.
