Virginia Beach, VA. October 14, 2015—Divurgent is excited to announce that during the Cerner Health Conference, Divurgent and conference attendees successfully raised $2,000 to support Children’s Mercy Hospital in the first few days of the conference. Sharing their passion for improving children’s healthcare, Divurgent Team Members, with the help of conference attendees, celebrated the charity drive success with Children’s Mercy Hospitals’ Allison Abplanalp, Children’s Mercy Hospital’s Managing Director of Community Engagement & Events, during a signing ceremony on Tuesday.
“Children’s Mercy Hospital is so thrilled to have been a part of this very fun and interactive way of raising awareness and donations to support our mission of improving the lives of children by redefining pediatric medicine. Divurgent’s contributions, along with the outpouring of support from the Cerner Health Conference attendees has been truly inspiring,” says Abplanalp.
Conference attendees participated in the High Roller Charity Drive, tossing or “rolling” oversized, inflatable dice in the midst of conference hustle and bustle, crossing their fingers for a 6 to achieve “High Roller” status and donate $30. Participants played an essential role, pun intended, in raising the $2,000 for a very important cause—children’s healthcare.
With over 450 attendee participants, Divurgent not only quickly raised $2,000, but also raised awareness about Children’s Mercy Hospital’s current pediatric initiatives. “This was one of our most successful charity drives yet,” said Keri DeSalvo, Divurgent’s Marketing Director, “it was incredible to see so many attendees excited to be part of this important cause.”
Divurgent would like to thank all of this year’s Cerner Health Conference attendees who participated in the charity drive, as their support and enthusiasm made this year’s charity drive for Children’s Mercy Hospital our must successful yet.
