Security Pros on the ‘Hunt’ in Las Vegas Raise $24K for Mission 500
Mission 500’s first-ever “Great Las Vegas Scavenger Hunt” held during ISC West 2021 will benefit the organization’s charitable causes.
MIAMI — Mission 500’s newest fundraiser endeavor at ISC West 2021, “The Great Las Vegas Scavenger Hunt,” was a big success. The event not only brought awareness to helping children and families in need across America, but it also brought the security industry together for some much-needed fun.
Dan Wilkins, an account executive with Security Sales & Integration states, “As a participant, I had a blast! The group with Mission 500 and its supporters are truly a welcoming bunch and it was a refreshing change of pace to meet and hang out with industry professionals all while supporting a great cause.”
The event consisted of nine, four-member teams: Advance Security Tech, Alarm.com, Alarms R Us, Automatic Gate Operations, DMP, Resideo, Simplx Security, WeSuite and ZtecoUSA.
The event was comprised of six stops which included bull riding, line dancing and convincing a random couple to kiss in front of the LOVE sign. There was also the ability to earn bonus points, which ultimately decided the winner — Simplx Security.
Also held at ISC West was the annual award ceremony for the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Humanitarian Award winners. The 2021 recipients were ADI Global Distribution and Ken Gould, who serves as president of Ken Gould Consulting and Chairman of Mission 500.
