HGA Global Forum attendees participate in global give back activity

Attendees kicked off the 4th Annual HGA Global Forum with a remarkable CSR activity, sponsored by Best Corporate Events, benefitting both US and international charity organizations. HGA and Best Corporate Events worked with Feeding Children Everywhere (FCE) to create an activity where Global Forum attendees, consisting of both HGA clients and DMC Members, packed over 25,000 healthy meals for crises food pantries.

FCE’s mission is to bring people together as an empowered group to make a difference for hungry children and families.  HGA, who believes in creating a difference for our communities, found the perfect opportunity to support a well-respected charity and demonstrate our H Factor. The H Factor is that extra something special in all that we do and for HGA it doesn’t stop at supporting our clients, but also involves supporting our industry, each other and our communities. Partnering with FCE was the ideal way to bring together our HGA clients and DMC Members to be Heroes for our host community of South Florida.

The attendees were first brought together for the Ipad challenge, where competitiveness ensued, carrying over into the CSR activity where teams battled to finish first.

National Account Manager of Experient, Diane Steele, CMP, comments, "What I liked about the teambuilding was the competitive spirit of it all. They did a really good job of having fun and being very competitive at the same time. Also, I loved the give back. It made me feel like I was here for a purpose. I feel very lucky to be a part of this. Hosts Global has been a great partner to Experient, and I'm always happy to be a part of the Forum."

Global Forum attendees packed meals bound for South Florida and for the African nation of Burundi. Through FCE’s cooperation with the Seed Sowers of Faith, the meals will be distributed to local food pantries in the Fort Lauderdale and Miami area, while Burundi Christian Ministries will deliver to children and families in need in the East African country.

Andy Gladstone, DMCP, owner of Show Me Arizona, a Hosts Global Alliance member, says, "The teambuilding event by Best Corporate Events was outrageous. They immediately bonded strangers together and had us use technology, creativity and imagination to compete against each other. And boy, did we compete! In the second part of the event, we crossed through the curtains and found an assembly line of food products waiting for us to package and ship off. That too was outrageous with fierce competition among our new found friends."
