Temecula, Ca. – October, 4 2011 – Global Tracking Communications, Inc. is a proud sponsor of the Desert Thunder 2011 Annual Children’s Charity Motorcycle Rally and Classic Car Show, in Las Vegas, NV, on October 7, 8, and 9, 2011. Being held at the Palace Station Hotel & Casino, this event will raise money to benefit various charitable children’s organizations in Southern California and Southern Nevada.

In 2004, GTC Software Engineer Andy Kustes was working for the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department when he initially became involved with the Desert Thunder Charity. Believing in the charity’s mission and wanting to continue lending his support, Mr. Kustes continued his involvement with the Desert Thunder Charity after leaving the Sheriff’s department. When asked about his involvement with the charity, Mr. Kustes modestly replies, “I was asked to assist with the charity initially on a technical level and continued on simply because they’re doing great things for the kids.” Understanding GTC’s desire to give back to the community, Mr. Kustes introduced GTC to the charity and since 2008, they have served as sponsors to the event in addition to providing technical support, hosting, and web development for the Desert Thunder Charity.
