This month we featured the Susan G. Komen Foundation as our 'Charity of the Month.' This organization is dedicated to breast cancer education and research about causes, treatment, and the search for a cure. Our office particularly supports our very own Karen Cassella, and this year, we raised funds for her 3rd annual 3-Day Walk to help reach her goal of $3,000.
August 5th-9th was recognized as "Think Pink" Week in the CBIZ MHM Memphis office. Each day brought along a new activity with it in an effort to raise money. On Monday, donations were accepted in the morning as associates were greeted by the community involvement committee with Panera bagels for a special breakfast.
Tuesday was the office-wide bake sale where 20 associates brought in baked goods for the event. This sale was a huge hit among our staff and lasted throughout the week!
A raffle was Wednesday's fun activity. A few lucky employees went home with donated items from a local giftshop. Thursday donations were collected along with an afternoon treat provided by a local restaurant.
"Think Pink" Week ended with a jeans day on Friday. Associates wore jeans and their pink to show support for the cause.
Below is our "photo op" from the day (Karen Cassella is pictured holding the pink ribbon).
Our office collected a grand total of over $1,700! Karen will participate in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day later this fall. If you would like to contribute to her cause, you can go to Karen's walk page and donate online. You can also learn more about the Susan G. Komen Foundation at www.komen.org.
