3esi Gives Back in Spam Cup Charity Challenge
For the fourth consecutive year, 3esi has been proud to take part in the YYC Tech Gives initiative, in support of the Calgary Food Bank.
YYC Tech Gives consists of Calgary’s leading technology companies coming together to raise money for local charities. This year’s fundraising efforts saw the participation of 3esi team members in a competition against other local tech companies to stuff hampers with food donations. The team put up a great fight and had a lot of fun supporting this year’s charity event.
In addition to our participation in this competition, 3esi contributed a corporate donation of $10,000 plus another $5,000 raised by 3esi staff over the past 12 months, bringing our total donation for the year to $15,000.
YYC Tech Gives fundraising goal for 2015 was $170,000 and they were very pleased to surpass this goal with total donations being presented in the amount of $184,815 to the Calgary Food Bank. With this donation, the total cumulative donations provided by YYC Tech Gives over the last 5 years is more than $650,000.
