Scanning for a Cause in Conyers, Georgia
Filed under: community, causes, Announcements
We recently posted on the United States Tennis Association's (USTA) use of the Symbol SPT1846 handheld terminal. Just a quick note on the USTA, which is a not-for-profit volunteer-run organization whose mission is to promote the sport of tennis throughout America and at every level, not just for the pros. These folks are passionate about the game of tennis and are committed through their work across our nation to spread its benefits (good health, fitness, as well as positive social and community-building outlets for life).
In Lexicon’s own hometown of Conyers, Georgia, we’ve had a dedicated group of community-minded people put on a great tennis-themed fundraiser each August for the last three years as our own little prelude to the US Open – the Kim Atkins Memorial Tennis Tournament. The event raises awareness about and benefits the fight against breast cancer. We (along with many others in town) have been privileged to support this great charity event, which raised close to $40,000 this year toward the purchase of a mobile mammography unit, and which was recognized by the USTA, as a 2007 USTA Charity Event of the Year. Well done to Benny and Jean and all your great volunteers!
