IMT Wizards win Community Giving Campaign pledge competition
Upstate Medical University employees contributed $548,692 to the 2018 Community Giving Campaign that began in October and officially ended last month. The contributions support United Way of CNY, The Upstate Foundation, Alumni funds and many other agencies.
At the start of the campaign, co-chairs Gennady Bratslavsky, MD, and Mark Schmitt, PhD, initiated a friendly competition, by placing Upstate employees in giving teams. The winning team would be determined by the percentage of employees who pledged to the campaign.
The winning team was the Wizards, named for employees working in Information Management and Technology, with a 41 percent participation rate.
Bratslavsky acknowledged the Wizards and all who participated at a recent end-of-campaign reception. “I offer a special recognition to the Wizards for its leading efforts in supporting the campaign, but we share the success of this campaign with all who participated, for you have put into action your super power to help others,” he said.
