Williams Forrest Partners With TopSpin Charity Creates New Site and Mobile App for Charity's 2012 Tournament
LANCASTER, Pa., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital solutions agency Williams Forrest today announces a partnership with TopSpin Charity, a community of sports, entertainment and media professionals dedicated to supporting nonprofits working to solve the most pressing child education issues. Williams Forrest will serve as TopSpin's 2012 Digital Solutions Strategy and Delivery Partner.
To date, Williams Forrest has created a new website for TopSpin, a new Facebook page with applications and a refined Twitter feed.
For TopSpin's upcoming New York City Ping Pong tournament and fundraiser on November 14, Williams Forrest created a mobile application for corporate teams to register prior to the event as part of the "Corporate Team Challenge." Williams Forrest will run a live leader board the night of the event, allowing challenge players to see scores and keep track of their favorite teams.
Additionally, Williams Forrest will stream photos live from the event's photo booth into a slideshow application that will display in an engaging format on TV screens throughout the event.
"The opportunity to contribute to TopSpin is natural fit for Williams Forrest," said Carolyn Stonerook, Williams Forrest Project Manager. "The charity resonates with our company culture and we're happy to give our time to a great cause and be part of the TopSpin family. Since a Ping Pong table doubles as our conference table, this event is an opportunity to showcase both our Ping Pong and technology skills."
"TopSpin's new site has helped monumentally in driving donations and overall awareness," said Peter Farnsworth, Founder/CEO, Foxrock Partners and Founder, TopSpin Charity. "We're grateful to have Williams Forrest on board as our Digital Solutions partner. They understand our needs and goals and are the type of partner we look for."
Started in New York City in 2009, the annual TopSpin event has become a who's who of sports, marketing and education professionals and has raised $750,000 since inception and spurred events in Chicago and San Francisco.
