Choozle donates $2,772.33 to two Denver nonprofits
Our Third Annual Playing It Forward has come and gone and it was our best year yet. Our team hosted a charity Ping-Pong Tournament with the Denver technology community on Tuesday, January 15, 2019, from 5:00 PM–8:00 PM MST at Ace Eat Serve in Denver.
Sponsored by Choozle, LiveRamp, The Trade Desk, Booyah Advertising, and SpotX, this year’s lumberjack-themed tournament benefited two local charities, Harvesting Hope 5K and The Gathering Place. Thirty doubles teams played in the tournament and more than 130 people from Denver-based tech companies attended.
About Harvesting Hope
Harvesting Hope strives to eliminate the challenges of Prader-Willi syndrome through the advancement of research and education of rare genetic disorders and childhood obesity. Prader-Willi syndrome is a genetic disorder that occurs in approximately one out of every 15,000 births and is recognized as the most common genetic cause of life-threatening childhood obesity.
About The Gathering Place
Founded in 1986, The Gathering Place is the only daytime drop-in center in metropolitan Denver that serves women, their children, and transgender individuals who are experiencing poverty, many of whom are also experiencing homelessness. While we refer to those we serve as “members,” no fees are ever charged for programs or services.
