Ingram Micro Raises More Than Half a Million Dollars for Local Charities at Annual Golf Tournaments

Associates and Business Partners Tee Off at East and West Coast Tournaments to Support Santa Ana and Buffalo Communities

SANTA ANA, CA and BUFFALO, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 5, 2014) - Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM) today announced it has raised more than $500,000 combined at its two recent charity golf tournaments. The first event, the 21st Annual West Coast Charity Golf Tournament, took place May 31 at the Tustin Ranch Golf Club in Tustin, Calif., and raised $212,000. It was followed by the 19th Annual East Coast Charity Golf Tournament on Aug. 2 at the Links at Ivy Ridge in Akron, N.Y., which raised $300,000.

The funds from each tournament were donated to four local charity organizations, selected by Ingram Micro's Philanthropic Committee. In Santa Ana, Olive Crest, Children's Bureau, Veterans First, and Council on Aging were chosen as beneficiaries; in Buffalo, Heritage Centers, Western New York Heroes, Save the Michaels, and City Kids were selected.

"One of our core values at Ingram Micro is social responsibility, and to be able to give back to our communities this way while also having a great time playing golf with our associates and manufacturer partners is an amazing opportunity," said Paul Bay, president, North America, technology solutions. "Each of these nonprofits serves Ingram Micro's surrounding communities in a unique and profound way, and we're glad to be in a position to support their missions and raise awareness of their positive impacts in Orange County and Buffalo."

The two events, which were made possible in part by donations from manufacturer partners, featured a combined total of nearly 300 golfers and were managed by a total of more than 125 volunteers. The tournaments each featured a silent auction and raffle, using donations from associates and manufacturer sponsors. Proceeds benefitted each region's chosen local charities.
