Virginia Beach, VA. April 20, 2015—Divurgent is excited to announce that with the help of this year’s HIMSS conference attendees, Divurgent was able to reach their goal of raising $5,000 to donate to Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Divurgent’s three-year tradition of donating monies to a local children’s hospital of the hosting city during the annual HIMSS conference is the Team’s most important goal while at HIMSS.
On Wednesday, April 15th, participating HIMSS attendees gathered to help celebrate this amazing accomplishment, as Divurgent presented Lurie Children’s with their charitable donation.
“As a charitable 501(c)(3) organization, Lurie Children’s relies on the philanthropic support from firms like Divurgent to continue and advance our programs, services, and research,” said Jennie Cimino, Development Officer for Corporate Giving at Lurie Children’s Foundation. “Divurgent’s donation will go directly into the funds we use to ensure that Chicago’s children receive the medical care they need.”
In between chapter meetings, educational sessions, and other conference events, hundreds of HIMSS attendees stopped by Divurgent’s booth on the exhibiting floor to participate in our “Trivia Charity Drive,” inspired by the explosively popular Trivia Crack mobile app game. Eager to test their trivia skills, participants lined up to spin the Trivia Charity Wheel and see what question and donation amount they would land on–donation amounts varied from $5-$20.
“We saw a great crowd come through, and we always get such a supportive response from attendees as children’s healthcare is something near and dear to so many of us in healthcare; our game-show inspired trivia fundraiser is a fun way to get everyone at the conference involved in giving back and improving children’s healthcare,” said Colin Konschak, Managing Partner at Divurgent.
Divurgent’s Team is proud to continue our Community Commitment Campaign in Chicago, and thank all of the participants for their help in reaching the donation goal. We will be carrying on our charity drive game-show inspired tradition to Las Vegas, during the HIMSS 2016 Conference.
