Company Gives Back to the Community and Spreads Holiday Spirit
Vizergy, the hospitality industry’s leading provider in hotel Internet marketing, has focused its annual fundraising efforts for the 2014 holiday season on Jacksonville based Angelwood, Inc., a non-profit providing group home facilities for people with special needs, with 24-hour care in a loving home setting, in order to give back and make a lasting impact on the local community.
Each year, Vizergy looks forward to teaming up with a special charitable organization that benefits those in need, in the spirit of giving and kindness. This year, Vizergy employees formed into eight teams to assemble a collection of festive, themed gift baskets that will raise money to support Angelwood, Inc. through a company raffle held at the firm’s annual holiday party. The themes include a “Bro Basket”, “Coffee Basket”, “Put Me in Coach Basket”, “Roaring 20’s Basket”, “Latin Food & Spirits Basket”, “New Year’s Resolution Basket”, “Brewery Basket”, and a “Local Wellness Basket”. 100% of the proceeds raised from these diverse gift packages will be donated to Angelwood, Inc.
As a local nonprofit, Angelwood, Inc. largely relies on support from the community through donations, volunteering, and annual fundraisers that include a fashion show, a golf tournament, and a charity motorcycle ride. The organization depends on the funds raised from such events to assist families in caring for the special needs of their loved ones, and Vizergy is thrilled to contribute to this worthy cause on both a company and individual level through its unique charity auction.
In 2013, Vizergy proudly raised more than $1,100 for Hubbard House, a safe haven for victims of domestic violence, through its annual employee raffle, and the Vizergy event organizers are anticipating that enthusiastic participation from associates will result in doubling that dollar amount in 2014 to benefit Angelwood, Inc.
“As a company, we work just as hard for our community as we do for our clients, and this year the team selected a great local charity,” said Joe Hyman, Founder & CEO of Vizergy. “When I learned we would be raising money for Angelwood this year, I knew we found a fantastic organization that would benefit immensely from our efforts.”
“Angelwood is thankful for the selfless support of Vizergy this holiday season,” said Alexis Woods, Director of Community Involvement at Angelwood, Inc. “Funds raised will directly impact our programs for over 300 local children and adults with developmental disabilities and their families, and having the support of friends in the community like Vizergy will help to brighten the lives of those we serve this holiday season and beyond.”
