Spinitar — Merry Christmas 2016

Merry Christmas from Spinitar


2016 has been quite a year around here, and we are incredibly grateful for our employees, partners, and clients who allow us to do what we do best…audio, visual, and communication solutions! The holidays are always a great time to look back and appreciate the gifts of the year. This fun blog shares some of the highlights. Thanks for being a part of our journey!

30 Year Anniversary

Spinitar has been providing quality AV solutions for 30 years now. We celebrated this amazing milestone in May of this year, and are proud to work with all of our wonderful manufacturer partners and vendor partners to keep everyone connected and inspired.

We blogged about it here!

2nd Annual Golf for Hope Tournament

In October, we hosted our 2nd annual golf classic, benefiting City of Hope. In the end, we are incredibly grateful to have been able to support the cancer treatment and research organization through the tournament, including a fun raffle and silent auction made possible by our incredible friends, family, and partners.

Growing Federal Government Practice

This year, our service to federal government facilities, including design and installation of some very complicated mission control rooms, has expanded exponentially. We are proud to serve our country in this small way, and look forward to providing even more customized AV solutions for state and federal government spaces next year.

New Office Opens in Concord

The expansion continues! We were proud to announce the grand opening of our new office in Concord, CA this November. The new space will help us to serve our West Coast clientele even better, and is a testament to the wonderful successes of our team in California.

Microsoft Surface Hub

The Microsoft Surface Hub is one of the coolest collaboration technologies to hit the market… ever. We are excited to be one of Microsoft’s exclusive dealers for the solution, and really enjoyed launching the Surface Hub at several events this quarter. Look out for your invite in 2017 for more opportunities to try out Surface Hub with your group.

Very Merry Christmas

Here at Spinitar, we place a high value on our business and manufacturer partners. In fact, our partners are one of the top reasons for our success. One way we show our appreciation each year is by celebrating the joy of the holiday season with our annual Partner Appreciation Day.

California AV Company supports City of Hope!

To our Sponsors, Guests, Volunteers, Friends & Family, thank you for supporting Spinitar’s Golf for Hope 2016!

This year’s event could not have been a more terrific day of fun and friendship, with all of us coming together to help in the fight against cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Spinitar and City of Hope sincerely thank you for your support and participation!

City of Hope is committed to combining “scientific innovation with the power of human compassion, creating medical miracles every day.” Their amazing work and innovation continues because of those who decided to join us in the fight for cures and HOPE.

We thank our Gold, Silver, and Platinum Sponsors!

Spinitar hosted over 144 people on October 13th at Tustin Ranch Golf Club in Tustin, CA – including golfers, guests, family, and friends. With a desire to be great hosts and an even bigger desire to support City of Hope, we could not have accomplished all we did without the generosity of our partners, sponsors and donors.

Call to carts!

We kicked off the day with a Putting Contest and lunch from The Habit. MMM, it was tasty! If you did make it to the Putting Green, you may have picked up a Bloody Mary from Spinitar’s Gil Gomez, our resident go-to for all things yummy!spinitar-av-golf-for-hope-2016

Based on the honor system, Tustin Ranch Golf Club set up the Putting Contest and awarded John Reda from Sound Marketing West winner. Congrats John and thank you for joining the fight!

Game On – on the green!

As the day continued on the green with beautiful 75-degree weather most of the day, golfers made their way through 18 holes in a scramble format, including contest holes for Closest-to-the-Pin and Longest/Most Accurate Drive. At Hole # 3, sponsored by Cambridge Sound Management, Kyle Moloo from Big Presence was awarded for Closest-to-the-Pin. The second Closest-to-the-Pin contest was at Hole #11 sponsored by Impact Solutions. Patrick Bellor from Southern California Edison measured out 17’4” on Hole # 11 and was therefore also awarded for Closest-to-the-Pin.spinitar-av-technologies-golf-for-hope-2016

Who had the longest drive you ask? Downey High School’s Mark Rand walked away with the win for Longest Drive which was calculated from scores on both Hole #2 sponsored by Sony and Hole # 15 sponsored by Vaddio. Thank you to all golfers for a great game on the green!

Congratulations Kyle, Patrick, and Mark and thank you for joining the fight!

The Winning 4 must be thirsty.

Quenching our thirst throughout the day, Kramer and Samsung sponsored the Beverage Carts providing each golfer with their beverage of choice.

Although our Event Chairs, Adriana Hernandez and Angelique Tavizon, won’t exactly admit that this team called their win from day one of registration sign-ups, the proud winning foursome from CRESA Partners had an unbelievable day of golf recording a score of 53!

Congratulations Jeff Manley, Chris Armato, Taylor Keddinton, and Tony DeFrancis and thank you for joining the fight!

Now let’s all get together.

Giving us all hope.

Every new discovery, each patient helped or cured, is a testament to the transformative power of philanthropy. Since City of Hope’s very start, they have relied on the generosity of individuals, companies, foundations, and governments supporting their work. Your participation, as volunteers, sponsors, golfers, and donors, is a part of that amazing effort, and Spinitar thanks you!!

Spinitar Golf for Hope

Golf for Hope benefiting City of Hope – join Spinitar in the fight!

Our team members are passionate about giving back, and we know we can make the greatest impact by providing our financial and volunteer support to charities and community-focused organizations. Here is one cause you can join with us!


Spinitar’s is hosting its 2nd annual Golf for Hope at the Tustin Ranch Golf Club. The tournament benefits City of Hope, a leading research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases nationwide. City of Hope is a pioneer in the fields of bone marrow transplantation and genetics and shares its scientific knowledge with medical centers locally and globally, helping patients battling serious diseases.

Invited guest, Manufacturer Partners, Business Partners, and Spinitarians will participate in both the sponsored tournament and auction over the one-day event, aiming to outstrip last year’s $55K total donation.

Unfortunately, cancer seems to touch all of our lives, even our Spinitar family. Today 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. We’d like to invite you to sponsor and/or donate in support of City of Hope’s enduring and impactful efforts to make our world a place to thrive! Join us in the fight!

For sponsorship and/or donation opportunities, please visit our event page at www.cityofhope.org/spinitar .

We’d like to invite you to sponsor and/or donate to help insure that all funds can go directly toward City of Hope’s enduring and impactful efforts to make our world a place to thrive!

Sponsorship opportunities and golf spots are limited so be sure to reserve yours today! No donation is too small and no heart is too big, so contact us now to help!

We’ve chosen to do an event such as this in hopes that we might make a difference in the ongoing fight for a cure and treatment. For sponsorship and/or donation opportunities, please contact Adriana Jerez at (800) 722-6444 or sales@spinitar.com today!

Join us as we tee off to help City of Hope find the cures for cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
