Giving back is part of what makes my company, Market Technologies, so incredible. Over the weekend, we hosted a party for patients and their families at Tampa Bay Shriners Hospitals for Children. Earlier this year, I announced the partnership with Shriners for Q3 of 2017. Then, later at the company’s quarterly event, I announced the extension of the partnership.
Since forming this partnership, Market Technologies has been donating a portion of its sales to benefit the children at the hospital. Shriners Hospitals for Children has 22 locations in Canada, Mexico and the United States which provide care for children suffering from a wide range of pediatric orthopedic conditions regardless of the families’ ability to pay.
In addition to their ongoing monetary donations to Shriners, Market Technologies sponsored the event for the patients and their families, to provide them with a memorable experience full of happiness. Each patient received a personalized invitation in the mail to the party, with thirteen patients and their families, including twenty-one siblings, in attendance. In addition to a tour of the hospital, the event included food, games, and interactive performances by the popular children’s entertainer, Mr. Tommy.
The party was a huge success, measured by the smiles on the kids’ faces and the positive feedback by the patients, their families as well as the staff of Market Technologies who were in attendance. The event was both heartwarming and rewarding. Joyce, an employee of Market Technologies, said, “I’m very grateful to work for a company that believes in giving back.”
