The Digital Ball is a prestigious gala which serves as TechBridge’s annual fundraiser. Sponsorship offers you unique opportunities to network in a relaxed setting with the CIOs/IT Leaders of leading Atlanta corporations like The Coca-Cola Company, GE Energy, Southern Company, UPS, Cox Enterprises, McKesson, Turner and more. All proceeds support TechBridge’s delivery of critical technology services to the community. Check out the 2015 Digital Ball.

The Digital Ball is a great example of the spirit of philanthropy in the Atlanta tech community. The money raised enables TechBridge to provide local nonprofits with the tech services they need to better serve their community missions. I am honored to support this important cause.

A highlight of the Ball is the presentation of the annual Technology Innovation Award, given by Accenture, recognizing nonprofits that have ideas for technology projects to significantly impact their mission. The award offers over $75,000 in software, services and cash to the winner and two finalists. Click here for further details.
