Dedicated IT Celebrates National Video Game Day by Hosting Employee Fundraiser for Red Apple Supplies – Education Foundation of Palm Beach County
LAKE PARK, FL – July 15, 2022 – Last Friday Dedicated IT celebrated National Video Game Day (July 8th) with their team by hosting a company-wide gaming event where employees submitted a donation to play. Organized by Robin Stark, Executive Assistant to Managing Partners, and Kelsey Poole, HR Generalist, more than 23 employees participated or donated, allowing Dedicated IT to raise $650 for the Red Apple Supplies program.
“Creating a fun work environment is essential to our business, especially because of our ever-evolving hybrid workforce,” says Kelsey. “Our team has worked hard to find unique ways to involve our employees, celebrate fun holidays together, and kick back at work, while at the same time doing something that allows us to give back to our community as a team,” adds Robin.
“Dedicated IT is on a mission to make people and organizations better tomorrow than they are today,” says Aaron Underhill, CEO and Managing Partner of Dedicated IT. “Our company is proud to be able to match the donations our employees submitted, and we look forward to hosting more events like this to give back to our local Palm Beach County community and beyond.”
About the Event
Dedicated IT employees donated a minimum of $5 to play the online game Krunker.io. Once donations were submitted, they were able to select a time slot to play. On the day of the event, their team joined each other live via Microsoft Teams to participate in or watch the matches and ended the fun with a celebratory virtual happy hour afterwards.
