Creative Fundraising + Team Building

[Creative Fundraising + Team Building = $7,000] In July Red Ventures held an employee charity cornhole fundraising event benefiting the Isabella Santos Foundation. We had so much fun spending the afternoon watching the last 2 teams battle it out in the championship round. In addition, teams competed to be top fundraisers and a total of over $7,000 was raised for pediatric cancer during a regularly scheduled workday!
