Wednesday night, Community Shares celebrated their 30th anniversary at their Summer Celebration event in downtown Denver. Community Shares is a workplace giving campaign allowing businesses to offer employees the ability to donate to a portfolio of non-profits directly from their paychecks. Rocky Mountain Tech Team members who participate in the program were invited to share a table for some drinks, laughs and fun.
The event included a silent auction, review of the successes of the last 30 years and a heads or tails competition for two cases of wine. Down to a nail biting final round, Ben Taylor’s wife, Alicia, came home with the win!
Started in 1986, the first campaign raised $3,500 and last year hit $3.2 million for Colorado charities. To learn more about starting a workplace giving campaign with Community Shares, visit their website.
Congratulations to them on 30 years!
