ADI, Mission 500 Raise Over $45,000 to Benefit Title 1 School Children
Mission 500 far exceeded its goal of $15,000 during a silent auction charity event held at the College Football Hall of Fame.
ATLANTA — Mission 500 teamed with new angel sponsor ($30k+ level), ADI Global Distribution, this past January for a silent auction charity event held at the College Football Hall of Fame in downtown Atlanta.
Looking to meet their goal of $15,000, the generosity of the silent auction participants, corporate donations from ADI, as well as ADI’s supplier partners, helped Mission 500 to far exceed expectations, and raise more than $45,000 for the Compassion Care Packs that will go to Title 1 School recipients.
These Care Packs are crucial to help supply Title 1 schools with large concentrations of low-income students who receive supplemental funds with essential school supplies to assist in meeting student’s educational goals, according to the organization.
“We were very honored to sponsor and host this event. Teaming up with our supplier partners to raise funds to support Mission 500 was a great way to start our annual ADI North America Sales Kick Off meeting,” says Rob Aarnes, president of ADI Global Distribution. “As a leading distributor, we’re always look for ways to give back in the local communities we serve. And by partnering with Mission 500, we’re able to help mobilize resources to help students in need across the country.”
The 95,000 square foot College Football Hall of Fame opened 2014 as a state-of-the-art tribute to 977 players, 211 coaches and countless fans.
The funds raised at the ADI event will also be used to host Care Pack Events across the country as well as help resource other significant Mission 500 initiatives which will benefit children attending Title 1 Schools or living in shelters.
