On July 8th, Weber Thompson began participating in Food Frenzy, a friendly competition to raise money for Food Lifeline. The competition engages employees of local businesses to volunteer, raise funds or collect food to do their part in helping to end hunger. Food Frenzy runs through next Friday, July 22nd, and Weber Thompson has committed to raising at least $1,000 in support of the effort.
On Thursday, July 14th, Weber Thompson turned the outdoor courtyard into a carnival-themed happy hour. Employees were encouraged to help raise money by buying raffle tickets, cocktails, snacks and by playing carnival-themed games.
The office annex was host to the happy hour bar and raffle ticket table. The bar featured a selection of snacks, delicious cocktails and boozy SnoCups that brightened everyone’s Thursday afternoon. The mango-coconut rum SnoCup was an overwhelming crowd favorite. There was also a wide variety of raffle prizes to choose from, including gift cards donated by local businesses, bottles of wine, employee parking spots and a one-hour personal photo session, to name a few.
Employees showcased their skills for the carnival games. The ring toss was one of the most popular events with winners taking home one (or several) bottles of wine and/or local brews.
All told, the Carnival Happy Hour raised nearly $450. The competition will continue with the employee bake sale at the beginning of next week and an ice cream social closing things out on Friday. Can we raise $1,000? Stay tuned for more updates, and follow along on Facebook to see if we reach our goal.
