Cydcor’s Casino Night Fundraiser Helps Contribute to Corporate Goal for Operation Smile
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., June 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Cydcor, the leading provider of outsourced, face-to-face sales teams, recently held a company-sponsored “Casino Night” to raise funds for Operation Smile, a children’s medical charity that provides free cleft lip and cleft palate reconstructive surgeries worldwide. Cydcor team members have been raising funds for Operation Smile over the past several months with an overall goal of raising $150,000 to fund a medical mission to remote locations in Peru, Cambodia, or Rwanda.
Planned entirely by Cydcor team volunteers, the casino event was created to bring team members, family, and friends together in a fun environment to raise funds for Operation Smile. During the event, more than 50 participants, including Cydcor friends, family and team members, enjoyed a poker and blackjack tournament, a costume contest, a raffle, and prizes.
Donations from sponsors included Dodger tickets, restaurant gift certificates, teeth whitening from a local dentist, a gym membership, a tanning gift certificate, a tennis racket, and an American Airlines gift card. Cydcor’s blog contains more information about the prizes, donors, and prize recipients.
“The positive energy and attitude of everyone who participated was inspiring,” said Vera Quinn, senior vice president of sales operations. “This is just another example of everyone coming together to reach a common goal – raising $150,000. We’re almost there and it’s such an accomplishment; it shows that people working together make the biggest differences. Our team members have embraced this goal, as they do all of our goals – and it’s that kind of energy and focus that changes things.”
