Bowling and Movies = Successful Operation Smile Fundraisers!

In recent weeks, we’ve had two fundraisers for Operation Smile that have raised significant funds. This demonstrates what we know:

#1. Once we all put our minds to something, we can achieve it

#2. We won’t stop until we meet our overall fundraising goal for Operation Smile!

Here’s info about what we did:

Bowling Night

The Cydcor Bowling Night raised more than $880 for Operation Smile. Approximately 75 team members, their family and friends, and Business Building Block attendees (sales professionals from offices who were in town attending a learning event at Cydcor’s corporate office) came to the event.  We were creative with our “highlighter” theme, sporting highlighter goatees, jerseys, vests and ties, and much more.

Movie Night

The Cydcor Movie Night took place at the local Muvico Thousand Oaks for a screening of a popular children’s movie.  A total of $755 was raised; 151 tickets were sold at $5 each. Some of the tickets purchased by Cydcor team members were donated to families at EARTHS Academy, a local elementary school. During pre-ticket sales at the theater, celebrity Jamie Foxx purchased several tickets – demonstrating a widespread support of the organization.

 Next week, we’re having a fundraiser at a local Italian chain eatery and we can’t wait to see how much we will raise!

Health and Wellness? YES!

 Health and wellness were the names, fun was the game! Cydcor just had its first “Health and Wellness Fair” right at corporate headquarters and it was a rousing success. Our team members flocked to the various booths, which ranged from chair massage and yoga to skin care/DermaScan screening and smoking cessation. Representatives from 18 different vendors answered questions and provided valuable information. A cool raffle, baskets full of healthy snacks, and green drinks were provided as well.

This health and wellness fair was the first of its kind for Cydcor, which values itself on its unique corporate culture. As one of the  best place to work, we provide an array of programs for team members, including paid volunteer hours and active participation in programs like the Ventura County Corporate Games. We’re also heavily involved with Operation Smile, a children’s medical charity, and have already had several fundraisers for the organization, including our recent bowling night and movie night.

 Thank you to all of the vendors who came out on this unique and fun day!
