inferno supports Hope House in 2012
inferno has served local non-profits as pro-bono clients almost as long as there’s been an inferno. And recently, the staff has followed the agency partners’ lead and taken it upon themselves to support a different local non-profit each year with year-round events, donation drives, and volunteer time.
This year, inferno was asked to vote on the 2012 beneficiary. We chose Hope House in Midtown, which exists to improve the quality of life of HIV-affected children and their families by addressing their educational, social, psychological, and health needs. Within the first quarter of 2012, inferno staffers collected mounds of supplies for Hope House during the agency’s annual Soup Off competition, and participated in the 10th annual Help for Hope 5K in Harbor Town. A record $17,250 was raised during the 5K fundraiser.
For the remainder of the year, inferno will donate and volunteer in support of the nonprofit while battling it out in our Playing with Fire competition, which pits three teams of infernites against each other in cook-offs, trivia, doggie costume contests, and other assorted events.
