The 4th Annual Pick-A-Charity Bash hosted by OVM Financial, raised more than $15,000 for charities across Hampton Roads. The event, held on September 21st at The Shack on 8th Street, had more than 300 attendees–each of which, donated a minimum of $35 to a charity of their choice.
“Pick-A-Charity Bash was created to inspire our community to give back to the charitable organizations that they are passionate about,” said Chief Executive Officer, Adam Newman. “This event wouldn’t be possible without our sponsors, employees, partners, and friends, and we are humbled each year by their generosity.”
Each year, OVM Financial takes the grand total of all donations made and matches the funds to donate to a charity of OVM Financials’ choice. This year, OVM Financial will donated a total of $15,824 to The American Red Cross to support Hurricane Relief efforts.
Between the funds raised from Charity Bash attendees and OVM Financials’ match, the event raised a total of $31,648.
“When it came time to make the decision for this year’s Pick-A-Charity Bash match, there was no question as to where the donation should go,” said Chief Executive Officer, Adam Newman. “Our hearts and minds are with our neighbors to the south as they recover from the devastation. We hope that our contribution can bring brighter days to those rebuilding after the storms.”
