Padgett Senior Management Team Takes Pies in the Face for Homeless Children
Press release from the issuing company
DALLAS–(July 13, 2007)– Dallas based Padgett Printing’s senior management team members offered to take a pie in the face to encourage employees to donate critically needed items to Captain Hope’s Kids, a local organization committed to meeting the critical needs of homeless children.
The company’s 125 employees gathered almost 2,000 items. In return, the senior management team let each department that had 100% participation in the campaign pick a person to throw a pie at the team member of his or her choice. The department with the most donations, and the person who brought in the most donations also got a chance to throw a pie.
Padgett employees watched and had a great time. One unexpected pie throwing occurred when Padgett President and CEO David Torok’s wife, Shirley, showed up to toss one at her hubby. After the event, everyone enjoyed cake decorated with the Captain Hope’s Kids logo.
Through Captain Hope’s Kids partnership with approximately 40 homeless service providers in North Texas, Captain Hope’s Kids helped agencies provide $466,500 in supplies for more than 15,000 homeless children last year, a 41% increase over 2005. To learn more, please visit www.captainhope.org.
