After a busy summer of beer tours, bingo calling, and a ballin’ Ping Pong finale, Outsell and the Caring Committee are gearing up for the finish line this fall and winter.
First up was our annual Chili Cookoff. Once again, a talented group of chefs competed for the hearts and bellies (and generous donations) of their fellow associates. This time, we threw salsa into the mix to give those summer tomato growers a chance to show off their goods. With over 13 entries, the Caring Committee and Outsell raised $412 in total donations to be shared with our 2019 partner, YouthLink.
You can see the creative names of our best performers below, with IT professional Jeremy Forstner‘s “Have You Tried Turning It Off and Back On?” chili taking the top spot. He was also the first-ever recipient of the new chili pepper crown!
And coming this December, it’s the return of our popular Craft Silent Auction! This is the event made for a company like Outsell and all the latent creativity harbored in our associates. From winter wear to shiny jewelry, the Craft Silent Auction gives generous bidders the chance to find a one-of-a-kind gift for the holidays while also supporting our Caring Committee’s causes. Watch out for more details on this event, scheduled for Thursday, December 12th!
ICYMI: Congratulations to Andrew Swisher from the Marketing team, who was our inaugural ping pong champion. Outsell couldn’t have asked for more from the epic match-up between Andrew and Eric Schilling from the Regional Sales team. It took all 3 rounds for Andrew to put Eric down… will there be a chance for someone to unseat him next year?
Between the entry fees and the Championship Challenge for Charity, Outsell associates raised over $350 for local community partners. Due to the success of this event, there will also be an all-new Bags Tournament this fall, with a similar $5 entry fee per participant. Knowing the competitive spirit in the office, it’s sure to be just as exciting!
