Insight Integrated Systems and NetApp Support Local Youth Organization, Just In Time

Laptop Donations and Charity Golf Outing Will Provide Technology and Funds for Young Adults Transferring Out of Foster Care Into the Community

ORANGE, CA--(Marketwire - August 14, 2009) - Insight Integrated Systems (IIS), a division of Insight Investments Corp., the industry experts in technology solutions and financing options, today announced that it has teamed up with NetApp to organize and sponsor a charitable fundraising golf event for local foster youth organization called Just In Time (JIT). The private event will be held on August 28, 2009 at Pelican Hill golf course in Newport Beach, California. The companies will also donate 30 laptop computers to the organization.

JIT is a non-profit organization based in San Diego with a mission to help transitioning foster youth become productive members of society by providing crucial resources, guidance, and hope, thereby breaking the cycle of child abuse, homelessness, and crime among this underserved population.

As longtime successful technology business partners and corporate citizens of the southern California community, Insight Integrated Systems and NetApp have teamed up to benefit this important organization.

"Just In Time is an outstanding local organization that is making a difference in the lives of the foster youth in our community," said Chris Aliberti, vice president of Sales, Insight Investments, Corp. "As a local provider of technology services, solutions and financing options we feel strongly as a company about being involved in the community and we are proud to be able to help further this important cause."

All donations from the charity event and the laptop computers will go to JIT. The organization has helped hundreds transition out of the foster care system and into the community by providing everything from basic and emergency needs, housing assistance, job training and educational support.

"We are so grateful to have Insight Integrated Systems and NetApp involved with our organization. We are looking forward to the upcoming event and the laptops will be tremendously useful for the young adults going on to school or out into the workforce," said Kathryn Vaughn, President of Just In Time. "There are so many young people in our community who come out of foster care at the age of 18 and need some extra support to get out on their own. Our hearts are warmed by all of our volunteers and good corporate citizens like Insight Integrated Systems and NetApp."

Tom Mendoza, vice chairman of NetApp, will be the opening speaker at the first annual charity golf event for JIT. Mendoza dedicates his time to helping NetApp customers, partners and sales teams realize the value that NetApp storage and data management solutions deliver. He is a highly motivational speaker, having served as keynote for organizations all over the world, including the U.S. Marine Corps, and often speaks about corporate culture and leadership.
