At Tei Consulting Group, success isn’t just reaching targets from our clients or winning awards. True success is being able to give back to the community and the world. In alignment with that belief, Tei Consulting Group’s team set up and participated in a festival to raise money for Operation Smile.
We know how important a smile is for our team’s success. At Operation Smile, they provide life changing surgeries that fix cleft lips and palates in children across the world. What is such an easy surgery here in the U.S. is rarely provided in struggling countries. Children born with cleft lips and palate deformities not only have problems smiling, but they have a hard time eating and are often hidden away for fear and shame of public reaction. We are excited to support a philanthropy that goes to these children and fix the issues.
Just like last year, the fundraiser was set up in a tournament style. We brought back the corn hall boards and added games like pinata and we catered the event as well. The team set up the fundraiser at our Charlotte office and provided food. In order to participate, we asked that each person paid a $10 cover fee. The prize this year was a fun one! Each participant received a raffle ticket and at the end of the night, a winner was picked. Their prize? A day hanging out with President Okletey. Out of the 40 participants, Vanessa won!
The Tei Consulting Group team is proud to announce that the fundraiser was able to raise enough money to cover one and half operations. Help us cover the second one and more by going to our Operation Smile team page here.
