Corporate IT Solutions Sponsor’s the Annual Shari’s Golf Classic

Grip-It & Rip–It Golf Classic Raises $2 Million

Orange County, June 18, 2014 – Corporate IT Solutions (CIS) joins Shari’s Restaurants in West Linn Oregon on June 23, 2014 for a successful fundraiser, now in it’s 19th year, benefiting the Boys & Girl’s Clubs.   The golf event named “Shari’s Grip-It & Rip-It Golf Classic” is a personal favorite of the Shari’s organization, a growing restaurant chain operating 100 stores across seven states and headquartered in Beaverton Oregon.

This year the tournament will take place at The Oregon Golf Club, one of the most revered golf clubs in the Pacific Northwest. “As a multi-year vendor of Shari’s we’re very happy to take a part in supporting this great cause and the good work done by the Boys & Girl’s Clubs,” says Matt Miller, Founder and Managing Partner Corporate IT Solutions. The event is structured as a scramble and will include a private barbeque featuring Shari’s premium burgers, ribs and award-winning pies. A member of the Shari’s management team will captain each team of five players. “If golf isn’t your thing, we invite the community to come out and hear first-hand how the Boys & Girl’s Clubs impact our communities from one of the Youth of the Year candidates,” says Kevin Bechtel, SVP Purchasing, R&D and Menu Development. “We thank CIS and all of our corporate sponsors for their financial and time investment in a very important event to Shari’s Restaurants.”
