When the Gordon Hartman Family Foundation decided to develop two huge, adjoining projects in San Antonio in 2009, it sought IT assistance from Internet Contrasts, a San Antonio-based VAR.
The two projects, developed simultaneously, were the South Texas Area Regional (STAR) soccer complex and Morgan’s Wonderland, the world’s first ultra-accessible family fun park for people with disabilities.
The projects sprawl over 108 acres, with 40 devoted to soccer and 26 to the park, and were named after Gordon Hartman’s daughter, Morgan, who suffers from cognitive disabilities. All proceeds from STAR subsidize free admission to Morgan’s Wonderland for individuals with special needs.
Internet Contrasts was an obvious choice for IT expertise as it had recently finished a state-of-the-art green IT room for Hartman’s former construction business. The room was small, energy-efficient and buzzing with the sound of high-capacity blade servers.
