Strike Out Hunger at SHRM 2014

In what has become a much anticipated part of the SHRM Annual conference, the social team is once again taking time out on Sunday to benefit No Kid Hungry, this time hitting the lanes in tribute to The Big Lebowski and, of course, NKH mega-supporter Jeff Bridges.

This year, more than 16 million children in America will face hunger. That’s one in five. Share our Strength is working to connect hungry kids with the food they need to grow and thrive. We’re doing our part to connect kids to the healthy food they need every day.  Every dollar we raise will make a huge impact for kids. In fact, just $1 can help connect a child with 10 meals.  

The event is sponsored by Dovetail Software and Dice.com.  They have not only helped with providing the event but are also kicking in some sweet items for our silent auction.  We are honored and appreciative to have them on our side once again!  Last year we topped $11,000 in donations.  We’d like to see that number go up!

So, what’s your role?  (Get it?  Role?  Like roll?  Because it’s bowling?  Never mind.)

We have 100 tickets available.  You’ll notice the price is a very reasonable $0.  That’s because we are asking you to jump over to our No Kid Hungry portal and make your donation directly.  You can do that first, or do it after.  You can even do it on site if you really want. Or all of the above.  But please make sure you do it.  The reason we are set up this way is that 100% of the funds go directly to No Kid Hungry.  All of it.  Every dollar.

And since our love for sport and helping others is nearly matched by our love for playing dress up, we are taking the inspiration for the theme from one of the greatest bowling movies ever, The Big Lebowski.  And since it is a costume party, and we have little to no shame when it comes to NKH, for any donations over $500 we will re-enact a scene of your choosing from the film, and post it online for the world to see.  

Even if you can’t make the event, you can still make a difference.  Click here to go directly to the donation page.

So grab your bathrobe, your White Russian and a rug to pull the whole thing together, and help us make a difference!
