Charity “Dress Down” Fundraiser Challenge
As most of you are probably familiar, Richmond Brothers frequently participates in a “dress down” for charity during the summer months to help raise funds for both local and international charities. Normally the company raises about $2000. This year, we have decided to shake things up a bit and have been challenged by our President, Dave Richmond, to make an even more notable difference for those in need. With that, Dave has provided Richmond Brothers with the opportunity for team members to “dress down” (in other words, instead of business casual dress, team members may wear smart casual clothing, including jeans) throughout the entire year on Thursdays and Fridays.
Team members must donate $500 to the charity (or charities) of their choice in order to dress down on Thursdays and Fridays throughout the year. The option has also been provided for additional days of the week to be added for $100 each; for example, if team members would like to dress down every day of the week, $800 would be donated to charity throughout the year.
Our goal for this year is to triple the amount raised last year and have $6000 donated to charity. Thus far, we are pleased to announce that Richmond Brothers team members have donated $3000 to charities such as The Lingap Children’s Foundation, Food Bank of South Central Michigan and Queen of the Miraculous Medal Parish.
Even though you may see our team members looking more relaxed as you come in for your meetings with us, please know that we will continue to maintain our high level of excellence in every interaction, just as our core mission states. And when you are in the office, we’d love for you to ask our team members where their donations were allocated. We are truly excited to be able to come together in a way that helps our community and provide to those less fortunate than ourselves.
