SymQuest Group, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Konica Minolta Business Solutions, U.S.A., Inc., recently donated $12,700 to HealingWindsVermont, a state nonprofit that provides cancer patients and their caregivers opportunities to relieve stress and anxiety through quality time together on the water. The donation was from the proceeds of SymQuest’s 20th annual charitable golf tournament and included a matching donation from Konica Minolta.

“Giving back in the communities in which we do business is part of our corporate DNA,” commented SymQuest president and CEO, Larry Sudbay. “Partnering with our valued clients and vendors to provide for HealingWinds’ support of cancer patients and their caregivers is an honor for us and I can’t think of a better way to mark 20 years of this work.”

As part of the tournament format, SymQuest makes a donation for each birdie, eagle, and hole-in-one, which this year amounted to $6,350. Konica Minolta, who acquired SymQuest earlier this year, matched SymQuest’s overall contribution, bringing the total donation to Healing WindsVermont to $12,700.

“Like any nonprofit, HealingWindsVermont is focused on our mission of providing meaningful experiences for cancer patients and their caregivers,” said HealingWindsVermont executive director, Suzanne Johnson. “A donation of this magnitude gives us an opportunity to expand the experiences we provide and serve more people (here in our community and beyond) who need it. We’re excited for the impact this will make this year.”

Established in April, 2014 by Suzanne Johnson, a cancer survivor and lifelong sailor, HealingWindsVermont has given more than 65 sailing outings to cancer patients currently in treatment, and their caregivers, serving 300 individuals to date. To learn more about HealingWindsVermont visit
