Divurgent and HIMSS’14 Attendees Raise $5,000 for Florida Hospital for Children

Virginia Beach, VA. March 5, 2014—Divurgent is pleased to announce that with the help of this year’s HIMSS attendees we have successfully raised our goal of $5,000 within just a few days at the 2014 HIMSS Annual Conference and Expo, held in Orlando, Florida.  Thousands of attendees aided the Divurgent Team in raising the monies being donated to a local-Orlando children’s hospital, Florida Hospital for Children.  Many attendees that participated in Divurgent’s game show-themed fundraising effort gathered in support on Wednesday’s check-presenting ceremony.

HIMSS'14 Florida Hospital for Children Check DonationThroughout the show, Divurgent’s booth featured a “Spin-to-Win” event, where participants were able to spin Divurgent’s Wheel-of-Donations—the donation amounts varied from $5-$20, and whatever donation amount a participant landed on would be donated to the Florida Hospital for Children. Not surprisingly, HIMSS attendees were more than thrilled to “come on up” to Divurgent’s booth to play a light-hearted game for a very important cause.

“Reaching our donation goal, and sharing the excitement with all of our friends at HIMSS is by far one of the most rewarding experiences at this year’s conference. The attendees are the ones who made this goal achievable, allowing Divurgent to continue our commitment to children’s health by presenting the check to Florida Hospital for Children,” said Shane Danaher, Divurgent’s Vice President of Business Development and Marketing.  To learn more about the Florida Hospital for Children, visit their website at https://www.floridahospitalforchildren.com.

Thanks to all the “Spin-to-Win” participants, Divurgent was able to reach their donation goal, making their record two for two at the annual HIMSS Conference and Expo, both in New Orleans and Orlando. Everyone from the Divurgent Team is looking forward to continuing their donation tradition next year in Chicago, IL for HIMSS 2015.
