Associates donate canned food and raise enough money for 6,000 pounds of food.
Recently, nearly 300 associates and family members from across 15 Gartner business units attended the very first Spring Fling & Food Drive at Lakes Park, hosted by the Fort Myers Campus Culture Committee. Attendees spent the afternoon between bounce houses, playing volleyball games, and competing against one another in a cornhole (or ‘bags’) tournament, among other activities.
“My daughter and I had a great time at the event. We got temporary tattoos, made cards, ate hot dogs and played a very competitive game of bags,” said Nate Swan, GVP of Sales in Fort Myers. ”She was excited about all the people there and felt as though she got a great view into Gartner’s world-class culture.”
“Gartner’s inaugural Spring Fling was a great way to socialize with fellow Gartner associates and their families, many of whom I’d heard all about but never met,” added Andrea Lockard Johnson, Referral Program Specialist. “We enjoyed the food and all of the activities and took part in the raffle to support the food bank.”
“We were so pleased that associates from so many different areas of our organization and their families attended,” explained Lisa LoCascio, GVP, Corporate Controller and Fort Myers Campus Cultural Committee member. “It was a great opportunity for associates to get outside and support The Harry Chapin Food Bank, which provides much-needed food assistance to members of our local community.”
Special thanks to the Fort Myers Campus Cultural Committee for organizing this event and to our attendees, those who donated food or money, and everyone who participated to make this a spectacular event. We look forward to next year’s event.
