We Took on the Corporate Games…and Won!

BasketballThis year’s Corporate Games were better than ever before. Why? Because we rocked! We participated in 12 events and medaled in 10 different individual events. It was the first year that we also won the overall points and winners trophy for the entire Division C competition, which is geared for companies with 85-100 people. We incorporated our fundraising for Operation Smile into the games, too, by selling water, having food trucks donate a portion of what they sold, holding a cornhole tournament, and so much more. Our participation was stellar, with a diverse group of team members participating at the events. Check out our video here.

Awards and medals won included:

GOLD

Basketball

Bowling

Dodgeball

Spades

Mini Golf

Best Group Photo

SILVER

Women’s Ping Pong

We also raised $750 for Operation Smile – that’s about five Smiles! Our executives donated $100 for each gold, $50 for each silver, and $25 for each medal we earned.We’re sad to see the games end but can’t wait for next year when we can do it all again!

Operation Smile Gala at Cipriani!

Last weekend, selected sales office owners from Cydcor’s network attended the Operation Smile black-tie gala Op Smile celebrityat Cipriani in New York City. They had the opportunity to rub elbows with celebrities, interact with other high-level fundraisers, and celebrated their accomplishments together.

It was definitely a time to be celebrated; those selected have worked tirelessly with their offices to creatively fundraise for the organization, using creative resources to motivate their teams and help children across the globe receive new smiles. Last year, we raised enough for a medical mission to Rio De Janerio.

We’re well on our way to funding a second mission – about $118,000 has been raised so far! Check out our press release about the Cirpiraini event and our Operation Smile fundraising page. You can also take a peek – and join! – our Cydcor Operation Smile page.
