ORLANDO, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 09/26/12 -- On September 29, 2012, LPGA golfer Diana D'Alessio will join Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar to host the "Tasting on the Green" fundraiser to benefit the Cord For Life Foundation. Held at Fleming's in Dr. Phillips, the event will feature a custom menu offering a diverse selection of appetizers and wine pairings, and guests will have the unique opportunity to challenge D'Alessio in putting green activities. A silent and live auction will be held on-site, as well. "Tasting on the Green" will begin at 7p.m. and ticket availability is limited. Tickets are $75 per person and can be purchased at www.cordforlifefoundation.org.
The event will help raise awareness of the potential life-saving benefits of umbilical cord blood and also fundraise for educational programs offered by the Cord for Life Foundation.
"I'm proud to be a part of the 'Tasting on the Green' event and to support a cause that is important to me," said D'Alessio. "I hope that through this event we help people understand the value of stem cells and the importance of donating cord blood when giving birth."
Each year, thousands of people are diagnosed with life-threatening diseases, such as leukemia and other disorders that can be treated with the stem cells extracted from the blood in the umbilical cord of newborns. As with bone marrow transplants, doctors can match cord blood to a patient and then transplant it to potentially save a life. If not suitable for patient use, donated cord blood may be used for medical research. Unfortunately, the umbilical cord is often discarded unless expectant mothers choose to donate the cord blood to a public cord blood bank or store the units with a private bank.
Tasting on the Green
Guests will enjoy delicious food and exceptional wines. The menu will include nine appetizers, and wine pairings handpicked to complement each menu item. Sample menu items include shrimp cocktail paired with Moet & Chandon Champagne and New Zealand Petite Lamb Chops paired with Morse Code Shiraz.
Sponsored by Jaguar Orlando, the "Putt for a Cause" activity will allow guests to challenge D'Alessio, Lorie Kane, Pernilla Lindberg and soccer player James O'Connor in a putting contest on an 18 x 23 foot putting green provided by Tour Links.
"We support many local organizations that are dedicated to making a difference in people's lives and improving their health, and we are pleased to sponsor this fundraising event which will help Cord for Life Foundation carry out their important mission," said Peter Wilson, President at Jaguar Orlando.
"We are proud to partner with Diana D'Alessio, Fleming's and the Cord for Life Foundation to offer a unique activity at 'Tasting on the Green,'" said Dave Barlow, president of Tour Links and UltraBase Systems Worldwide. "Guests will have fun testing our modular putting green and our patented UltraBase Systems. We offer a precision molded, engineered interlocking panel base structure that gives synthetic turf the feel of a natural grass field while providing strength and performance."
"Tasting on the Green" will be held at Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar - Dr. Phillips, 8030 Via Dellagio Way, Orlando.

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
