The Dynamic Edge Consulting team helped raise over $2500 to benefit Operation Smile over the weekend! The team posted up on the pier in Huntington Beach and offered beach-goers a chance to pie their team in the face in exchange for a donation to Operation Smile.
Other team members hit the beach with coolers offering water and Gatorade to donors. Beach-goers loved the opportunity to pie someone in the face for a good cause, and the team enjoyed doing something great for charity.
“I have always wanted to give back to my community and we’re always looking for ways to give to charities and non-profit organizations. When we have fundraisers for Operation Smile, it gives us an opportunity to come together as an office and accomplish something for many people. Not only is it great helping people in need but it’s also amazing doing this while building strong relationships with your colleagues. Whether it’s people in the office or people in third-world countries, this is a ‘people-helping-people business’ and that’s what I love about this company,” said Jaime, a Dynamic Edge Consulting team member, when he was asked about the event.
After the fundraiser, the team enjoyed lunch at Sharky’s and then played volleyball together on the beach.
Operation Smile is an international medical charity that has provided hundreds of thousands of free surgeries for children and young adults in developing countries who are born with cleft lip, cleft palate or other facial deformities. It is one of the oldest and largest volunteer-based organizations dedicated to improving the health and lives of children worldwide through access to surgical care.
