Cameo Global announces its new philanthropic community outreach program, Cameo Cares. As business has been steadily and rapidly growing, Cameo Global believes that it is time to give back to surrounding global communities. In one of its first efforts, employees from the Silicon Valley headquarters participated in the 7th Annual Hook and Ladder Run to support injured and fallen firefighters and local charities in the Tri Valley.
This year’s run was held on June 7, 2015, at Wente Vineyards in Livermore, CA. Our employees participated in both the 5k and 10k runs! Matt Thau, Livermore Pleasanton Firefighter, said, "We were able to raise over $55,000 to help support injured and fallen firefighters, police officers, first responders and their families, as well as the numerous local and national charities." Not only did the employees participate in the run, they also collected money to donate as well as bags and bags of their own shoes to be used to make a sustainable track for schools.
Cameo Global Marketing Associate, Scarlett Dante, said, “When upper management first approached me about finding a local charity to support, I was overjoyed at the opportunity. The fact that our employees embraced it and got on board quickly really made a statement about the people who work at Cameo Global. I’m proud to work for a company that contributes to the overall greater good. I believe that the difference that a company makes doesn’t stop with the business that they do.” Cameo Global looks forward to announcing their next Cameo Cares project in the near future.
