Monthly Charity Winner – Chili Fights in the Heights
The Little Rock Hat Club and it’s event, Chili Fights in the Heights, is this month’s vending machine charity winner. The Little Rock Hat Club is a non-profit men’s group that works to help a variety of charitable organizations through fundraising events. Since 2010 the group has given away over $260,000 to over 32 charities.
The annual Chili Fights in the Heights event serves as a fundraiser for the Arkansas Food Bank. Last year $20,000 was donated in time for the holiday season. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, November 4 and there will be a chili cook-off, a tasting time, and live entertainment. Chili cooking begins at 1:00pm and the tasting begins at 4:00. Tickets are $5.
Our monthly charity giving is one of our favorite things to do. Each month employees nominate and vote on a charity in the community they would like to help. Throughout the month, employees “donate” by buying snacks and drinks that the firm subsidizes. All the proceeds from the snacks are then matched by the firm. We are honored to have such great employees who not only pick out wonderful organizations, but also help by donating all month long.
