In the beginning of 2015, The Event Team announced our annual Give Back Program, where we committed to donating one book to San Diego and Los Angeles Boys and Girls Club branches for every piece of booked business in 2015. Our first book report back in March showed that The Event Team destination management company had booked 62 programs so far. Six months later, our second book report showed that we had climbed to 141 programs operated. By our final count, The Event Team successfully completed 186 Southern California corporate events in 2015. To boost the overall count, we incorporated a book drive at this year’s holiday party. Our generous staff, vendors, hoteliers, and industry partners contributed 84 additional books, resulting in a final donation of 270 books!
Last week, our Los Angeles and San Diego DMC offices paid visits to their respective Boys and Girls Clubs branches with our donation of 135 books per office in tow. Los Angeles General Manager Geraldine Caedo said, “It was such an honor to partner with the Los Angeles Boys and Girls Club. Founded in 1944, they have served countless children and families in the community, many whom we met on our visit. Not only do they provide a safe place for young people to just be themselves, they are committed to academic achievement, making our book donation a most appropriate holiday gift.”
President and CEO Matt Robbins agreed, stating “Part of our corporate culture at The Event Team is to give back to the community, and this year I am delighted that we are donating books to the Boys and Girls Club. My mother was a teacher and I was raised on children’s literature. I am very happy that my favorite book as a kid, The Phantom Tollbooth, was included in our donation!”
Thank you to all of our corporate event clients and Southern California hospitality industry partners for helping make our 2015 Book Give Back project a huge success. And thank you to the Boys and Girls Club for their amazing work in our communities! Stay tuned – we’ll be announcing our 2016 Give Back project in the coming weeks!
