Oklahoma Tornado Relief

As we’re certain most of you are aware, the people of Oklahoma have been hit with devastating tornadoes over the past several weeks.  Many of the residents have lost valuable assets such as their homes, cars, family photos, furniture and so much more.  In some ways, we have all been touched by someone or some event where the exposure to the weather was a tragic loss. We are saddened to share that an employee of one of Aptean’s customers has been tragically affected by the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma.  Just days after returning home from the Aptean Edge Conference in Las Vegas, Philip Vargyas’ life was forever changed by the tornado — losing two children, 7-month and 4-year old daughters — and his wife is still recovering from her injuries at a local hospital.  Their home and autos were also destroyed.

This event has touched the hearts of many of us; and with the support of Aptean and Vista, during the month of June, Aptean will be collecting financial donations to assist the Vargyas family. Aptean and Vista will be matching all donations. An account has been established for the family at Midfirst Bank in Oklahoma City to assist with medical and rebuilding costs.  All donations will go directly to this account for the Vargyas family. 

To make a donation, please send a personal check made payable to
