Bethesda-Based Firm Announced as Event's Presenting Sponsor
October 23, 2012 - The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) today announced that Morris Brown, President and CEO of OMNITEC Solutions, Inc., will serve as the tournament chair for the 2013 Brian Orakpo Leukemia Golf Classic. Additionally, OMNITEC Solutions, Inc. will support the event as the Presenting Sponsor. The 2013 Brian Orakpo Leukemia Golf Classic will be held on Monday, May 6 at Trump National Golf Club.
"We are excited to welcome Morris and OMNITEC Solutions, Inc. as LLS partners on this great event," said Gabrielle Urquhart, National Capital Area Chapter Executive Director. "The support they are providing will truly make an impact on the lives of our patients and their families as we march closer to a cure for blood cancers."
Philanthropy is an important part of Brown's life, and he's worked with many area non-profits over the years. He recently joined LLS's Board of Trustees, and has been active with organizations that serve military members and their families, disadvantaged youth, and the disabled. He founded OMNITEC Solutions, Inc. in 1999, which quickly expanded from a communications consulting firm to one that includes a unique mix of business management and technical services for government and commercial clients nationwide. Brown is responsible for the day-to-day strategic leadership and overall operations of the company.
"OMNITEC Solutions is proud to support the work of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and I am thrilled to be serving as chair for the upcoming Brian Orakpo Leukemia Golf Classic," said Brown. "I hope to bring new sponsors and partners to support this worthy cause and look forward to helping this event grow in 2013 and beyond."
