PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SES, a privately owned marketing and sales firm headquartered in Philadelphia, recently held a fundraiser to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a nonprofit organization which raises funds to grant wishes for children diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition, thereby giving them hope and renewed strength to fight those conditions.
With the support of more than a dozen people involved in the event – planned as a summer project by SES' summer interns and fashioned as a city-wide "amazing race" themed scavenger hunt – 16 participants formed teams to follow clues hidden around the city of Philadelphia to win the race. Each team was assigned a country to represent and encouraged to build team spirit.
The fundraising event, which took place on a temperate day in late July, saw participants racing from the Liberty Bell to Game Piece Park to the Amor Statue, culminating with the winning team's discovery of the final clue in Spruce Street Harbor Park.
SES raised several hundred dollars for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and the team is excited to participate in more fundraising events in the future.
"We enjoyed giving back to the community and helping grant children's wishes," said SES Human Resources Manager Maria Procopio. "It was gratifying to see our team come together in support of a great cause, and we look forward to continuing to be of service."
