Aidmatrix to Host Inaugural "Digital Ball" Fundraising Gala for Dallas - Fort Worth Technology Community

The Aidmatrix Foundation Inc. and NPower Texas today confirmed the date and location of the "DFW Digital Ball", a technology networking and charitable fundraising gala that will feature an assembly of DFW's most influential and thought-leading CIOs, CTOs, VPs of IT, and Technology Companies. The inaugural event, which focuses on empowering the nonprofit community through the adoption of technology, will be held at the Studios at Las Colinas on Saturday, November 10, 2012 from 6:30 p.m. to Midnight during an evening of dinner, dancing and visually stunning performances.

The DFW Digital Ball promises to be the "Go-To Event" for the technology community, offering a night of powerful networking in a social, non-business setting, allowing technology professionals to deepen existing, and build new, relationships with many of the DFW area's most influential players. The "Who's Who" of IT Executives and Technology Companies are aligning themselves with the event in support of innovative technology applications for nonprofit organizations, further strengthening our local and global communities. Proceeds from the fundraising event will benefit The Aidmatrix Foundation, Inc., a DFW-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that builds humanitarian-relief technology solutions for partners in DFW, Texas, across the U.S., and around the world.

DFW is rapidly becoming a hub for high-tech innovation and development. With more Fortune 500 company headquarters than any other US Metroplex and hundreds of high-tech businesses in the area, the event will also aid in solidifying DFW's footprint as a global epicenter for technological advancement.

A noteworthy element of the DFW Digital Ball is the presentation of the annual Technology Innovation Award, selected by a panel of judges, and presented to a local DFW nonprofit. The winning organization will receive in-kind Aidmatrix/NPower Texas technology services and software designed to more efficiently serve clients and manage business operations.

This will be the first Aidmatrix/NPower Digital Ball in the DFW area. The Digital Ball was first introduced in 2001 by Techbridge, the NPower affiliate in Atlanta, GA and was successfully followed in Charlotte, NC in 2007 by the NPower organization now known as Apparo.
