June 8, 2015 – The Iroquois Steeplechase would like to thank ForceX Inc., an industry leader in Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) software development, for its partnership as a sponsor of the 74th Iroquois Steeplechase on May 9, 2015.
“We’re opening a Nashville office in a few weeks, so getting involved with Steeplechase was a perfect way to kick off our philanthropic efforts here,” said Tracy Guarino, president and CEO of ForceX. “We’re proud to be involved with Steeplechase and to help support the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.”
ForceX, Inc. attended the Iroquois Steeplechase in 2014 in the Tents in the Turn area and returned in 2015 to enjoy the day from the Skybox Suites. The ForceX-sponsored drone was piloted by Michael Gomez to capture footage of the track and grounds. Fox 17 interviewed Tracy and Michael about their partnership with the Iroquois Steeplechase.
“ForceX , Inc. is an innovative company and they embraced the Drone Sponsorship idea as a way to showcase the fun and creative personalities that the employees of ForceX exemplify,” said GeorgeAnn Dingus, Iroquois Steeplechase sponsorship and business development director. “We were so excited to welcome ForceX as a sponsor this year.”
The success of the Iroquois and its ability to give back to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt depends largely on the continued generosity and involvement of Middle Tennessee businesses like ForceX.
