A few weeks ago some Edison’s employees decided to give back to the community. A committee was formed and the first annual charity event started. After many considerations the committee decided to organize activities and give to autism for the 2014 annual event. The organization Autism Speaks was selected to give the collected funds for the Brooklyn Walk for Autism Awareness.
Many activities were done for 7 weeks such as agreed weekly donations from employees’ paychecks, weekly raffles with prizes donated by employees and Edison’s president, dollar donations for puzzle pieces which were place on a bigger puzzle piece in the office, key chains were sold, and last but not least our president’s match to every dollar collected. The final amount came to an amazing $8,125 which was given to the national organization Autism Speaks for their efforts to research the causes and hopefully the cure for autism.
On the 6th week, the committee held a Happy Hour for Autism Awareness at Brookvin, a nice bar/restaurant on 7th Avenue in Brooklyn. Most Broovin guests donated to autism.
And again it was a good day
