ORANGE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Southern California Group, a leading sales and marketing firm based in the city of Orange, California, recently hosted a fundraising event to benefit Operation Smile, a children’s medical charity that provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children around the globe.
During their most recent event, more than 30 team members gathered to sell T-shirts in Long Beach, raising $1,500. Combined with previous events, the Southern California Group has raised more than $3,000 to date – enough for 12 smiles!
“Events like these are always a one-two punch of helping a great cause and feeling great doing it,” said Tedford Picha, President of the Southern California Group. “I am always proud of our team’s enthusiasm in rallying behind serving others, and understanding that a company’s focus on service is equally as important as a profit margin.”
In addition to working with Operation Smile, The Southern California Group has previously volunteered with the Susan J. Komen Foundation, the Children’s Hospital of Orange County, and the Boys and Girls Club of Venice. The company plans to continue its philanthropic activities as the organization grows.
