FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Petaluma, Calif. (Oct. 2, 2019) — Employees of CrossCheck and its subsidiary, Optio Solutions, contributed $1,880 to the American Cancer Society during a summer fundraising campaign held at three company locations. The effort consisted of special dress down days in Petaluma, Calif.; Irving, Texas; and Fargo, N.D. and a pancake breakfast in Petaluma. A team of company volunteers also worked the registration tent at the Relay for Life of Southern Sonoma County on Sept. 14.
“This is our eleventh consecutive year of assisting the American Cancer Society and we couldn’t be more proud of the staff members who contributed time and money to such a worthy cause,” said CrossCheck President and CEO J. David Siembieda.
The dress down campaign lasted from July 16 through Aug. 15. Employees donating $20.00 were permitted to wear work-appropriate shorts, athletic pants, T-shirts, flip flops, sports-team jerseys, jackets and caps for a two-week period. Some employees extended the ultra-casual dress code to a full month by donating another $20.00.
Furthermore, over 100 staff members donated $5.00 each to partake in the August 21 pancake breakfast at the Petaluma headquarters of both companies. Cooked and served by management, the hearty meal consisted of generous portions of pancakes with maple syrup and butter, scrambled eggs, sausage, orange juice and coffee.
Finally, a group of volunteers from CrossCheck and Optio Solutions staffed the registration tent between 8:00 am and 10:00 pm on Sept. 14 at a local Relay for Life (Casa Grande High School, 333 Casa Grande Rd., Petaluma).
