As part of its annual participation in Breast Cancer Awareness month, DataPath and its team members came together to raise funds for the Arkansas affiliate of Susan G. Komen® through a chili cook-off and bake sale.
Headquartered in Little Rock, DataPath’s team participates in charitable events throughout the year to support various causes around central Arkansas. This is the second year in a row that employees put the ‘fun’ in fundraising through a cook-off in October, just prior to the charity’s famous race.
Team members were invited to enter their ‘famous’ chili in a friendly competition and bring in homemade desserts for purchase. In addition, they sold raffle tickets for various prizes. The warmer than usual autumnal weather did not discourage participation. With an assortment of red and white chili entries, and a wide variety of desserts to choose from, the company’s crew showed up in force to donate and get a delicious meal. DataPath pledged a company match in appreciation of its associates efforts.
In addition to the cook-off, some employees have also joined race teams for the 2016 Komen Arkansas Race for the Cure in downtown Little Rock on October 22.
DataPath is proud of its team for their generosity in supporting Susan G. Komen’s quest to find a cure.
