We love to write about things like this!
Congratulations to our colleagues at Shaw AREVA MOX Services, who raised more than $26,000 for children’s charities at this year’s annual Celebrity Waiter Night in Aiken, S.C. The money will be used to provide daycare, meals, and help to at-risk kids in the Aiken County area.
According to Dave Stinson, president and project manager for Shaw AREVA MOX Services, volunteers were motivated by the need to help others:
Our focus was on helping Children’s Place meet the needs of the children and families they serve, and that drove us to exceed even our own expectations… The hard work of our employee waiters, the generosity of our guests, and the helpfulness and wonderful food of Casa Bella put us way over the top.
Floyd Bartoe, cost manager for Shaw AREVA MOX Services and Celebrity Waiter Night coordinator, added:
Our employees and subcontractors really put the ‘fun’ in fundraising, from a golf tournament, raffles, and a silent auction to an in-house band and strolling Elvis. We had so much fun last year, and it’s such a worthy cause; we had to try to do better this year.
