In case you haven’t heard yet, here at LCI we are celebrating our 25th anniversary – we’ve been in business nearly as long as I’ve been alive!
We’ll be marking this achievement in a variety of ways during 2016. Last week we launched a Facebook competition offering a $2,500 top prize to a local organization, our way of giving back to the City we love and tying in with National Volunteer Month in April.
Sticking with the theme of 25, as well as the main prize of $2,500 the three runners-up will receive a donation of $250, and all entrants must say in 25 words or less why the organization they have voted for deserves to win.
The four nonprofits competing for the prize are:
- Larkin Street Youth Services – The mission of Larkin Street Youth Services is to create a continuum of services that inspires youth to move beyond the street. We will nurture potential, promote dignity, and support bold steps by all.
- ODC – ODC’s mission is to inspire audiences, cultivate artists, engage the community and foster diversity and inclusion through dance.
- On Lok – On Lok’s mission is to maintain and develop health care models for the well-being of the elderly and chronically ill through education, advocacy, innovation in services and financing.
- ScholarMatch – The mission of ScholarMatch is to make college possible for underserved youth by matching students with donors, resources, colleges, and professional networks.
Get your creative juices flowing and tell us which of these four organizations deserves to win. Enter the competition by visiting our Facebook page here – the closing date is April 30th.
Once the contest has ended, we’ll review all of the entries and pick our favorite reason – we look forward to seeing the most imaginative uses of just 25 words!
Also this week we have started a new video series where we’ll be putting a member of the LCI team on the spot with some quick-fire questions. David Landis had the honor this week – watch his video below.
We hope that this weekly #MeetTheTeam series will give our followers some insight into the people behind the scenes at LCI – and also allow us to have some fun along the way! Check our social accounts each Friday for the latest video.
What questions should we ask during our next #MeetTheTeam video? Leave your suggestions below or tweet us @LandisComm.
