WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Feb. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cydcor, the leading provider of outsourced, face-to-face sales teams, announced that team members have raised more than $3,440 for Operation Smile, a children's medical charity that provides cleft lip and palate repair surgeries to children worldwide.
In conjunction with its annual kickoff meeting to raise money for Operation Smile, Cydcor held a charity bowling event at the AMF Bowling Center in Woodland Hills. Team members raised donations in order to compete in the bowl-a-thon. As an extra incentive, team members earned raffle tickets based on the amount they collected. The tickets went into drawings for experiences with key executives, such as wine-tasting or attending a Los Angeles Lakers game.
"It is extremely fortunate that organizations like Operation Smile work to directly impact the lives of underprivileged children. Our goal was to hold an exciting and fun team-building event where we could raise money and contribute to spreading recognition for Operation Smile," said Vera Quinn, senior vice president of sales operations. "Our bowl-a-thon was a great success and a true testament to how simple it is to give every child a chance to smile."
By adding the bowl-a-thon donations to their fundraising efforts, Cydcor will help Operation Smile fulfill their goals, which include providing safe, effective reconstructive surgeries and helping dedicated medical volunteers provide these procedures to the children who need them. Since 1982, Operation Smile has provided these services – and with a presence in more than 50 countries, they are able to heal children's smiles and bring hope for a better future.
