We have a lot of reasons to give thanks, especially this time of year. We’d like to take a moment to thank Datatrend clients, partners, employees, friends and community members who helped to make the 4th Annual Datatrend Bowl-a-thon a great success. All proceeds – a record $9,700 – went to benefit the Pay It Forward Fund, a local charity which helps women pay their bills while fighting breast cancer; all related expenses were covered directly by Datatrend Technologies.
The event was held at Country Club Lanes in Tonka Bay, MN, in October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (check out #bcaware too).Read More
