Dallas – (November 11, 2019) – Members of the High Touch Technologies team have been busy hitting the links. We recently served as the Hole in One sponsor as Envision teed off its inaugural Golf Fore Envision tournament on Monday, November 11, 2019, in Dallas.
The tournament’s goal was to raise funds to promote Envision’s Dallas initiatives, including assistive technology training, Serving our Seniors (SOS) program, orientation and mobility training, and more. The 18-hole tournament featured contests for longest drive, longest putt, closest to the pin, and best overall team score.
This is the first time High Touch has sponsored an Envision fundraiser in Dallas. Envision entered the Dallas market when it welcomed Dallas Lighthouse for the Blind to its operations in 2018. High Touch’s Dallas office has been in operation since 1993.
Ed “Too Tall” Jones (legendary Dallas Cowboys defensive end) and Larry Kimbler (former Vice President of Staubach Co. and former Chair of the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) Board of Trustees) cohosted the Golf Fore Envision tournament.
