We are thrilled to report that this year’s #GivingTuesday™ campaign raised more than $40,000. #GivingTuesday™ is a global day of giving designed to unite people to help those in need. This is an important fundraiser as all of the donations we received from our #GivingTuesday campaign will benefit the Bacharach Hospital Foundation – helping us to provide the best possible care to the community.
Sincere thanks go out to our generous #GivingTuesday™ matching donors: Akpharma, Glenn Insurance, Hersh Kozlov, Esq., and the Building Trades Council of Atlantic, Cape May and Vicinity, who matched every donation, dollar-for-dollar, during our #GivingTuesday campaign. And we would also like to recognize our dedicated Bacharach employees who contributed more than $18,000 to the campaign.
There were many exciting and fun events that took place throughout the campaign and the entire Bacharach team got involved. Starting in September, we posted #GivingTuesday™ on Facebook and Twitter, comparing our fundraising efforts over the past 90 years to our online outreach. In order to highlight our matching donors, Bacharach employees dressed up and posed as twins on social media. And, our creative T-shirt festival (top photo) was featured in an article about #GivingTuesday™ in the Press of Atlantic City.
Thank you to all those who participated in this special day of giving. We truly appreciate your ongoing support.
