Karaoke at Criterion – July 2016
Criterion Conferences’ Corporate Giving Committee recently held an evening of (undeniably high quality) karaoke to mark the company’s second fundraising event for 2016. The money was once again raised through a peer-nominated voting system, which would see staff put forward $2 to cast a single vote in the hope of bumping their colleague of choice into the ‘top 6 karaoke sing off’.
The selected charity for July’s fundraising event was AIME – a program that supports Indigenous students by equipping them with the skills to achieve success at all levels of education.
Chili Eating Contest & International Food Day – April 2016
In April, Criterion held our most successful fundraiser to date in the form of a hot chili eating competition! We’re proud to have raised over $2,100 for House of Welcome, which supports refugees and asylum seekers in their transition to life in Australia.
Five of our colleagues were nominated to take part, with HR Manager Vicki joining last minute as the Senior Leadership wildcard! We followed the competition with an International Food Day, with everyone bringing in dishes to share and leftovers going to OzHarvest.
In May, Criterion hosted our first ever ‘Biggest Morning Tea’ in support of the Cancer Council. The entire company got involved, bringing in savoury and baked goods to share around the office, raising $564.80 for the Cancer Council.
Thanks to everyone’s generosity we were left with a lot of extra food, and a fantastic service called OzHarvest picked up the leftover food to donate it to vulnerable men, women and children within the community.
Clean Up Australia Day – March 2015
Criterion took part in the 25th annual Clean Up Australia Day on Sunday March 8th, heading along to Clovelly beach and collecting over 15 bags of rubbish. A total of 526,268 volunteers took part across Australia this year with an estimated 13,500 tonnes of litter cleaned up overall.
We rounded off the day with a barbecue and a game of lawn bowls in the sun!
We could not think of a more worthy cause to launch The Criterion Giving Committee than an event that hits very close to home. We as a company decided in 2014 to band together to give a bright and bubbly colleague a helping hand! Leah Mula has been battling cancer since she was diagnosed at the age of 20.
Movember – 2013
“During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches around the world. With their “Mo’s” men raise vital funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer and mental health. As an independent global charity, Movember’s vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.” Congrats to our Mo-Men who successfully raised a total of AUD $1,602 in 2013!
