Versatile Donates to the Michael J. Fox Foundation

Company "Looks to the Future" With Its "Back to the Future" Event

MARLBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwired - November 23, 2015) - Versatile Communications, Inc., a full-service IT provider specializing in helping clients find the right balance between traditional IT and cloud computing, recently made a donation to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to developing improved therapies and finding a cure for Parkinson's disease. The contribution was made on the heels of Versatile's recent "Look to the Future" event held in Marlboro, MA on November 10th, themed after the classic 1985 film "Back to the Future".

The event addressed the rapid speed at which technology is changing, especially within today's "on-premises vs. cloud" debate. The keynote speaker was Joe Batista, Director & Chief Creatologist at Hewlett-Packard. Versatile's donation matches a contribution made by "Team Fox," a grassroots community fundraising program at The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Team Fox attended the event in a DeLorean modeled after the movie and let guests experience the car first hand.

Bill Shea, Team Fox member, says, "We were thrilled to work closely with Versatile in their 'Look to the Future' event. The appearance featured our DeLorean Time Machine, a VW bus, plus Doc, Marty, and Einstein! Reaction from attendees was jaw-dropping. These features were complemented by an incredible display including Lou's Café and The Enchantment Under the Sea depiction. We ended the 2015 season with a bang. We would sincerely like to thank Versatile for their generous contribution to The Michael J. Fox Foundation, which allowed us to far exceed our personal goal for the year 2015."

David Cote, Versatile's President says, "We are proud to support and endorse The Michael J. Fox Foundation and its efforts to help speed a cure for Parkinson's disease. Every penny raised by Team Fox goes directly to research, and we feel good about that."

Versatile's donation is just a small part of the company's overall corporate giving strategy. The company has also made contributions to United Way of Tri-County, The Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation, InSync Communications Social Sensory, and The Jimmy Fund. Versatile also has a corporate giving program that matches employee contributions to non-profit organizations.
