CDPHP Employees Hit a Home Run for Charity
Date:8/13/2013

Troy, NY (PRWEB) August 13, 2013

It’s a little past the half-way mark for the CDPHP 2013 Charity of Choice campaign, and employees have hit another home run for this year’s designees – Habitat for Humanity Capital District and Capital Region Sponsor-A-Scholar, Inc. So far, employees have raised $18,500 for the local charities by hosting a number of grassroots fundraising events.

On Friday, nearly 90 CDPHP employees, along with their family and friends, added another $1,500 to the total while enjoying a night of baseball, food and fun at the Tri-City ValleyCats game.

Habitat for Humanity and Sponsor-A-Scholar are benefitting from the yearlong fundraising initiative at CDPHP. The two charities have partnered to provide hard-working, lower-income families with a chance to own a home and to prepare their children for high school graduation and higher education.

“CDPHP employees have a history of stepping up to the plate,” said Dr. John D. Bennett, president and CEO of CDPHP. “I’m thrilled to work with such an amazing and generous team, who devote countless hours and expend great effort to support these worthwhile causes,” added Bennett.

In addition to the action on the field, attendees enjoyed kid-friendly activities, an Italian dinner buffet and post-game fireworks.
