Last Thursday, Workwell hosted our first ever charity event for Hope for the Warriors foundation. First off, we want to thank all of our sponsors, raffle donors, and those who attended our event. We can’t thank you enough for your support and generosity. Because of you, Workwell for Warriors exceeded our fundraising goal and raised over $8,000 for this notable charity!
Earlier this summer, Workwell announced a formal partnership with Hope for the Warriors and ran in their Big Apple Run for the Warriors. We took our efforts to the next level and hosted an event that is solely dedicated to raising money for this charity. Our team filled the room with colleagues, clients, coworkers, and vendors for an open bar, bites, raffle, silent auction and so much more fun! The photo booth was a fan favorite; photos can be viewed here.
We were honored to have a veteran, who has directly benefited from Hope for the Warriors, attend and speak at our event. Gene Wu is medically retired USMC, infantryman who served two tours in Iraq 2004/2005. He just completed an MBA in quantitative and corporate finance at Stern, and has been managing the U.S. and European operations for a Shanghai-based media firm out of Manhattan. He told us how this charity has helped and supported him with his transition back to the States. Along with Gene, there were many other veterans in attendance who we were delighted to host. Meeting and speaking with someone who has put their life on the line for our country truly puts a lot in perspective.
With a night filled with lots of laughs and fun, we cannot wait to host another event for Hope for the Warriors. With our next event, we hope to raise even more money for those who have served for us and their families. Thanks again to everyone who supported and attended out event!
