CRG & emPerform Get Creative for Charity

 OTTAWA, ON: December 13, 2012 – Corporate Renaissance Group (CRG), a leading Ottawa-based provider of Business Solutions and Business Management Applications, announced today that their staff has raised over $500 for the Ottawa Humane Society.

But this was no ordinary office fundraiser. In order to promote giving to the Humane Society, the CRG social committee hosted a silent auction where various staff members donated their time and services in return for bids. Items up for auction included a week of car-cleaning (perfect for this snowy time of year), on-call coffee runs, Holiday baking, and a member of the Senior Management Team even offered to let the highest bidder slam a pie into his face.

“Getting a pie in your face is an interesting sensation but it was worth it - a very fun event and for a great cause,” said John Smith, Director of Enterprise Business Solutions for emPerform and CRG. “It was great to watch colleagues from every department battle to outbid one-another and we are thrilled that the Ottawa Humane Society is able to benefit from this.”

“We were very happy to receive word that they [CRG] went to such creative lengths to raise money for the OHS,” said Eileen Barak, Director of Outreach for the Ottawa Humane Society. “It is always great to see companies coming together for a good cause and it is even better when they have a great time doing it.”
