ITD employees at Headquarters in Boise have created several unique ways to participate in this year’s state charitable giving campaign “United We Care 2005.”
Public Transportation employees combined to sponsor a dinner raffle in which employees can win one of two home-cooked dinners for four, expertly prepared by Ada Finlayson. Raffle tickets are $1 and will be sold until the end of this month.
Tickets are available from: Laurie Knight (Bridge Design), Janie Stillwell or Sandy Nelson (Highway Operations); Judy Rogers (Planning); Ruth Martin (Financial Services); Finlayson or Anita Jausoro (Public Transportation); the security desk; Evey McAdams (Business and Support Management); or Cecilia Arritola (Vehicle Services).
One dinner will be prepared in December and another in January. Winners can specify the date.
A Trick-or-Treat for Charity event is planned on Halloween, Monday, Oct. 31. Employees can reinvent themselves through costumes and put their new appearances on display.
Participants are asked to meet at 10 a.m. in the Headquarters Auditorium. People interested in voting for their favorite costumes can pick up their ballots in the Auditorium from 9:45 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. Ballots must be turned in by 11:30 a.m. Winners will be announced at noon in the Auditorium.They will be awarded “fabulous” prizes donated by DOROLCO.
People in costume will be divided into teams and will visit each section at Headquarters, trick,-or-treating for charity. Have your donations ready!
Proceeds from the fundraising activities will be given to the United Way general fund to benefit local charitable organizations.
