On August 24th at 11:00 am, a few members from the AZ Team met at our office in Scottsdale. They volunteered to not only pour ice water over their head but also donate money per bucket. We filled up buckets of ice and water and nominated others to partake in the ALS Ice bucket challenge to raise awareness for the cause. We dumped the freezing cold water buckets over our heads and we were able to raise $50.00 to contribute to ALS.
Participating in this challenge was important to the AZ Team. Many people suffer from this horrible disease and many people are unaware it even exists. The more awareness we can spread and money we can raise, the closer we might be to finding a cure.
Thank goodness we did the ice bucket challenge in the summer because it was pretty chilly
A big Thank You to all those who donated and participated!
Here at AZ Team, we believe in the importance of giving back. Our team constantly looks for an opportunity to make a difference in our community. For third year in a row, the AZ Team reached out to local charities and contributed by raising funds to help those in need. Some of these charities contribute in a larger scale to our society and even connect with international organizations. This means our contributions go a long way!
The first year we had the “Cornhole for a Cause” fundraising event, we involved the ASU cheer team. The second year, we involved local businesses. This year, due to our own growth, we had our entire team along with their friends and family participating.
The “Cornhole for a Cause” fundraising tournament took place this past Thursday, August 7th at Boondock’s Bar & Grill. The initial fundraising goal was to collect $1,000 dollars to provide to local charities. The team was able to enjoy a great night of fun and games while helping raise money for a great cause.
At AZ Team, personal growth is a huge focus. We know that giving our time, resources and energy back to those who are less fortunate allows for great personal development. This is why the AZ team makes sure to spend time giving back to the community.
At the end of the night, the tournament was a huge success! We were able to raise a total of $1,500. Everyone in our team was extremely happy for exceeding the goal. We also want to thank Boondock’s Bar and Grill for donating an additional $50 that was provided to the winner of the cornhole tournament. This allowed us to donate %100 of the money raised!
This is our third year doing this kind of fundraising event and this is the year we raised the most money! We are excited for future opportunities and look forward to continue giving back to our community.
