Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) May 15, 2012
MonkeyMedia Software, a provider of complete catering solutions for multi-unit restaurant operators, held its first annual party in conjunction with PeopleMatter, at the newly rebranded Bennigan’s, in Chicago, on Monday May 7, as the 2012 National Restaurant Association Show came to an end.
During the evening, Erle Dardick, CEO, MonkeyMedia Software, took to the stage to speak about his ongoing campaign to help end childhood hunger in the US by 2015. Through the sale of his book “Get Catering and Grow Sales!™” he aims to raise $100,000 to help end childhood hunger in the US by 2015, and in order to do so, 100% of net proceeds from the sale of his book are donated to Share Our Strength®.
The campaign has currently raised $5,000, and Jim Vinz, Co-CEO of Le Duff America (middle), joined Erle Dardick and Mo Asgari, President of MonkeyMedia Software (left), to accept a cheque on behalf of Share Our Strength®.
When asked about getting involved with the initiative, Dardick said, "At MonkeyMedia Software, we have a culture of working for our higher purpose, while growing our business responsibly. Our team feels blessed to do the work that we do and we believe strongly in the power of community and in the human spirit. We are proud to channel our energy into supporting this great organization."
“We are thrilled to have such strong champions in the industry like Mr. Dardick and MonkeyMedia Software who continue to support our work around Dine Out For No Kid Hungry,” says Sheila Bennett, director of Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry. “Ending childhood hunger is an issue that impacts us all and this book helps to amplify our voice by connecting us to the many restaurants excited to leverage their strengths and join this movement.”
