In June, before moving our Pleasanton office to San Ramon, our staff held an "Auction 4 Kids," with all proceeds benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Staff members bid on everything from desks and sofas to wall art and knickknacks, raising a total of $1,300 for the cause.
The auction was born out of talks with St. Jude's Regional Representative, Gigi Torrico, after an agreement was signed on June 12 to make our San Ramon office an official Corporate Sponsor of the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway, a raffle that benefits the hospital.
On June 27, Gigi visited our new office to share her vision for St. Jude's future and their goals for motivating their Corporate Sponsors to participate. We can hope to see many more philanthropic collaborations between Mott MacDonald and St. Jude coming soon!
