|SAN RAMON, Calif. – June 26, 2007 – AchievoR Corporation, the leading global software and information technology outsourcing provider with a local front-end and China back-end service model, today announced its continued sponsorship of the Achievo Cup, an annual local volleyball tournament made possible by Achievo and the Northern California Chinese Athletic Federation (NCCAF). The tournament will be held at San Jose State University’s main gym on Saturday, June 30 through Sunday, July 1, 2007. The Registration fee is $100 per adult team, $50 per student team. Teams can contact the NCCAF at 510/796-9988 or via the web at www.nccaf.org.
“We are very proud to continue our tradition of sponsoring this fine event,” said Dr. Robert P. Lee, Achievo’s chairman and CEO. “Last year the Achievo Cup attracted 34 teams from a wide diversity of Bay Area communities. Many players came from Silicon Valley’s high tech industry. The Achievo Cup promotes unity, friendship and fun among the Bay Area’s Chinese American communities and builds bridges across cultures. These are all values shared by Achievo and we are extremely proud to attach the Achievo name to this fun and worthy event.”
Now in its fifth year, the tournament is an amateur event organized and run by volunteers, including former coaches of Chinese women’s national volleyball team, Tianren Zhang and Peilan Qu, and made possible by support from the NCCAF (under the auspices of the Chinese Culture Athletic Federation), and corporate sponsorship. There is no qualifier to enter, and medals are awarded to the top three teams in each of four leagues: All-Men, All-Women, Co-ed and Senior.
The event is limited to one designated sponsor annually. In addition to Achievo sponsorship, Achievo co-founder Sandy Chau is personally donating customized shirts and gym bags for all the players, referees and administrators associated with the tournament.
We appreciate Achievo Corporation’s continuing sponsorship for this worthy and popular event. As the most recognized Valleyball tournament among overseas Chinese around the world, NCCAF anticipates record-breaking attendance and team participation from bay area communities this year and we look forward to partnering with Achievo to better serve the community in the future, said Betty L. Yuan, chief executive officer of NCCAF.
