(DALLAS) May 2, 2017 – TSP (Technology Service Professionals), a privately held IT services company, announced it will be the signature sponsor of the fifth-annual Leighton’s Ride. The fundraising event will benefit Leighton’s Gift, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 2013 with a mission to turn a tragedy into something positive.
The ride will occur on May 20, starting and finishing at Old Celina Park (12670 FM 428, Celina,TX 75009). For those who may not own or ride a motorcycle, there will also be an open celebration and classic car show, featuring live music from Cross Atlantic and Faded Blue, as well as food from In-N-Out Burger.
“Giving back to the community is one of our favorite things to do as a company and we’re once again proud to sponsor Leighton’s Ride,” said Frank Gonzalez, co-founder and CEO, TSP. “Seeing this charity event grow throughout the years has been rewarding and we love supporting an important cause dear to one of our own #TSProckstars, Chris, and his wife Amy.”
The annual ride is the main source of fundraising for Leighton’s Gift, which was co-founded by Chris Skaggs, TSP’s senior director of talent and brand management, and his wife Amy Skaggs, after their experience in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) with their son Jaxon, and late daughter, Leighton. The foundation’s current project is dedicated to installing webcams into the NICU at various hospitals – enabling parents to connect with their infants at any time from their computer, smart phone, tablet or other web-enabled device.
“TSP’s continued support has made all the difference in what we are able to do as an organization,” said Chris Skaggs. “To date, we have provided 45 NICU webcams at Texas Health Plano. As we continue to raise awareness and funds for Leighton’s Gift, we rely on the support of TSP and our community.”

About Leighton’s Gift
Leighton’s Gift is 501(c)(3) public charity founded in 2013 by Chris and Amy Skaggs with a mission to turn a tragedy into something positive. After the premature birth and subsequent neonatal intensive care (NICU) admission of both Jaxon and Leighton, they were inspired to give back. Jaxon came home from the NICU after 74 long days; however, Leighton earned her angel wings three short weeks after birth due to a late-onset group B strep infection. It was the couple’s desire to create a lasting legacy for Leighton that was the main driving force behind the creation of the foundation. To learn more, visit http://leightonsgift.com/.
