The award is presented by Ann Cramer of Coxe Curry & Associates.


Among hundreds of colleagues gathered at the Digital Ball black-tie gala, Mark Farbman was cheered as he accepted the Ann Cramer Volunteer Award. Ann Cramer (Coxe, Curry & Associates) presented the award to Mark, showing humor, friendship, and sincere appreciation for his extraordinary efforts as a volunteer.

Mark (Software Specialists, Inc.) is known to many for placing top IT talent but also as the absolutely amazing force behind our annual golf tournament, Tee IT up for TechBridge. The golf tournament is a collaborative effort of the Society for Information Management (SIM), the GeorgiaCIO Leadership Association, and TechBridge.

Mark Farbman works tirelessly with the help of his co-chairs and is an incredible proponent of developing and expanding the TechBridge network. Most recently, Edwina Payne (Avanos Medical) and Grant Shih (Encompass Digital Media, Inc.; formerly with Carter’s OshKosh b’Gosh) assisted Mark with all of the moving parts that go into the tournament. Everyone agrees he manages every detail (and can read every green) to make Tee IT up extraordinarily fun and meaningful. This top-level event provides IT leaders the opportunity to engage in a day of good sportsmanship while rallying sizeable financial support around the nonprofit community. Tee IT up for TechBridge is about bringing us together and can boast nearly 250 golfers participating on a sunny . In the past two years alone, this single-day event has raised more than a quarter of a million dollars to support transformational IT projects for Georgia’s worthy nonprofit organizations.

Get Involved


Most corporations want to give back to and invest in improving the communities where they work, but they also want a healthy bottom line. The key to having both? Being socially responsible.


Foundations want the best for their communities, and they want their investments to have exponential yield. Foundations want to know what impact they — and their grantees — are having in their communities.


Get involved with TechBridge by telling the world about our cause, adopting a nonprofit, volunteering for one of our events, or donating directly.
