Vantage Partners (VPL) gives back to Cleveland Community

Since starting execution of the GESS-3 contract in 2012 VPL has sought out ways to partner with the Glenn Research Center (GRC) and the Cleveland community to show our appreciation for NASA/GRC entrusting us with the execution of the Center’s premier engineering services contract. Some of the most recent activities VPL has supported are:

1.       Sjogren’s Syndrome Foundation

VPL was an associate sponsor of the 4th Annual Northeast Ohio Sjogren’s Walkabout on May 30, 2015 at the Oak Grove Picnic Area in the Brecksville Reservation of Cleveland Metroparks. The Sjogren’s Walkabout is a national event focused on increasing awareness about Sjogren’s while helping to raise money to support Sjogren’s research and education. The goal this year was to exceed the amount of $10,000 that was raised last year.

2.       Lewis Little Folks Golf Outing

On June 19, 2015 VPL participated in the NASA Glenn Research Center’s (GRC) Lewis Little Folks (LLF) 15th Annual Benefit Golf Outing.  LLF was organized in 1985 and is located on the grounds of GRC. It includes not only a daycare center, but also a comprehensive , full-day kindergarten, which is open to all GRC employees and support service contractors. Proceeds from this year’s event went toward replacement of aging toddler playground equipment which is expected to cost $15,000.  VPL has supported this event for the past 3 years. VPL employees supporting the event were Scott Lawyer, Barbara Wamsley, and Ray Kaliszewski.
