Women in Technology

Biggest party of the season—and it's free: Bisnow's Democrats v. Republicans Hip Happy Hour. 1,500 people from all Washington industries. The great Park at Fourteenth. Oct 15, 6-8 PM, stay and watch the debate. No charge, but you must sign up!


We love great causes (oh, and we love golf), so it was a no-brainer to take part in yesterday's Women in Technology's 9th Annual Charity Tournament (to benefit their Girls in  Technology education committee) at Westfields in Chantilly.


Arar Technologies founder Anitha Raj, Northrop Grumman's Ellen Quinn and Voci Media's Val Voci. Anitha tells us the Girls in Technology committee sponsors events to get school-aged girls interested in math and science and show them "working in technology is not just for the boys." Having chaired the 50-person tourney, Ellen will vacation to Italy and Greece later this month.


These poor people were forced to play 18 holes with our tech reporter, so we grabbed their picture BEFORE the event to ensure smiles. IT Solutions' Sara Fontaine, SRA's Fiona Barshow and AT&T's Paul Branum. Paul volunteered at the AT&T National earlier this year and was rewarded with a free round at Congressional Country Club (with caddy).


That's the Apptis gang: (back row) Diane Cunha, Pauline Healy, John Kronkaitis and Ahmad Abuzaakouk with Russ Sanford, Ken Smith, Debra Velasquez and Ashley Nam. Russ tells us they recently won a re-competition to upgrade DoD's Armed Forces Health Longitudinal Technology Application, which tracks medical records for all military personnel. These guys can swing a club, too: The foursome in the back won the tournament with a 65, including an eagle on a par 5. No misprint!


360 Inc's Keith Francis, Pragmatics Felix Salcedo, U.S. Custom's Justin Guidry and SRA's Gary Ricketts. Justin tells us his department is currently testing software but, being with the government, it's hush-hush. Gary is more forthcoming about being deep into developing ERP solutions. Keith almost had to buy drinks for his foursome since he was 6 inches from his first hole-in-one.


Northrop's Larry Sipos, Keith Hahn, Charlene Bargiel, Kim Petersen and Government Integrated Business Approaches' president Cheryl Baugh. GIBA is a Lorton-based, privately held project management life cycle system integrator and a government consulting firm. Northrop Grumman is a government contractor or something.


Booz Allen's Parham Ghanipour, Jessi Toye and Mark Byers with Deloitte's Megan McCarthy and Andrea Hodges. It's obvious Megan works for a financial firm because she accurately tallied that she had the "most whiffs" of anyone playing.

David Stegon sunk a 45-foot putt down the slope of a two-tiered green that must be considered among the most amazing shots in the history of golf. Send swing tips or story ideas to
