gap intelligence is a values-led company.  We care about ourselves, our clients, and our local community.  On March 15, 2013, gap intelligence will host what we hope to be our single biggest contribution to the local San Diego community – our first ever Golf Tournament.

gap intelligence’s first annual golf tournament will be held on March 15, 2013 and all proceeds will go to the Emilio Nares Foundation, will benefit Emilio Nares Foundation – a local San Diego nonprofit providing programs and services for low-income, underprivileged families whose children are battling cancer.  The Emilo Nares Foundation (ENF) is a nationally recognized non-profit that was inspired by Richard and Diane Nares’ son, Emilo.

Here is a video of President Obama describing the foundation:


gap intelligence could not be more honored to work with the Emilo Nares Foundation.  The organization makes a profound impact on our community, touches (and helps save) the lives of children in dire need, and are led by two of the most passionate people that I have ever met.

Did I mention that Richard Nares is running from San Francisco to San Diego by himself?  30 miles a day, 6 days per week!??!?

You already know that gap intelligence is not only an industry leader in market intelligence, but we are really fun to work with and I promise that if you are a part of a gapGolf Tournament, you’re in for a very, very good time.

How we need your help:

We need everything.  We need players. We need prizes for our players and we need sponsors.  We need it all.  We’ll take donations of all shapes and sizes.  The players could use water bottles on the tee boxes.  We need refreshments for our carts, sponsorships to give directly to ENF, and we need awesome prizes for our various games, raffles,  and silent auctions.

About the Emilio Nares Foundation

Richard and Diane Nares lost their only son, Emilio Nares, to cancer when he was 5-years-old.  Turning tragedy into hope, the Nares family created the Emilio Nares foundation (ENF) in 2003. ENF provides a variety of programs and services for low-income, underprivileged families whose child has cancer. ENF’s flagship program, Ride With Emilio, is a transportation service in southern California. At this time no other transportation exists that is dedicated to the unique socio-economic needs of low-income families whose children must access cancer treatment on time, but cannot due specifically to transportation barriers. The Ride With Emilio program has virtually eliminated missed appointments due to transportation challenges among the patients served. Ride with Emilio has been recognized as a model program by the U.S. Surgeon General and President Obama. We are a 501C3 tax-exempt organization. All donations to the Emilio Nares Foundation are tax deductible. Learn more about ENF:
