One of the biggest corporate benefits of a United Way campaign is the way it can boost the morale of employees. Rocky Mountain Power took it up a notch this year by hosting an online auction, a golf tournament, and a community giving festival!
This year’s online auction was a huge success, raising over $35,000 in just three days. Rocky Mountain Power had incredible items like hotel packages, tickets to sporting events, televisions, and even a guitar autographed by the Rolling Stones. Rocky Mountain Power also hosted its annual golf tournament recently, which was bigger than ever! More than 170 golfers showed up bright and early for a day of fun to raise additional donations for United Way of Salt Lake.
The highlight of all of these campaign activities was just a few weeks ago, when Rocky Mountain Power employees were invited to take some time out of their jobs to attend a Community Giving Festival. The event included a barbecue, DJ, and everyone’s favorite event – a dunk tank for executives from the company!
As you can imagine, the dunk tank was the highlight of the afternoon – one Rocky Mountain Power executive received 600 votes for the dunk tank before the festival even got started! To add to the fun, many executives dressed up in costumes and taunted employees who were trying to dunk them. Rocky Mountain Power’s CEO Cindy Crane took it to the next level by dressing up in a full scuba suit for the event!
You all know what it means to LIVE UNITED!
