Intech's Guest Bartending Fundraiser Huge Hit!

On March 3rd, The Community Service Team and staff and Intech Services hosted its first fundraiser at Catherine Rooney’s Trolley Square location. The guest bartending night featured a DJ, free food, prizes, and culminated with a live auction. Every dollar raised, through tips to bartenders, raffle or auction items, or 50/50 ticket sales, went directly to Camp Colwell, a week long summer camp for children of the Delaware National Guard men and women.

When the Community Service team began planning, the goal was to raise $5,000.00 for the camp. Thanks to the generous sponsors and business partners who donated prizes to be raffled or auctioned off, the team, with help from everyone at Intech Services, gathered over 20 donations. A special thank you to Catherine Rooney's for donating the space, servers, and food for the event, Nick Vavala for DJing, and Sarah Gaspero of Tuleya Photography for the capturing so many wonderful moments throughout the night. 

The live auction items included a week in Key West at the Swaying Palms, a two-night stay at The Hyatt Place in Dewey Beach, a round of golf for four at Hartefeld National, and four tickets to the Eagles vs. Ravens game in Baltimore. Other lucky winners walked away with some amazing raffle prizes including an autographed puck by the Philadelphia Flyers, an iPad mini, custom jewelry pieces, photography sessions, and so much more.

With so many great prizes to win and the enthusiasm of the guest bartenders soliciting tips from patrons, Intech was able to raise $8,636.00 for Camp Colwell, far exceeding the original goal. The Community Service team is thrilled with the support for and success of the night. Kim King, head of Camp Colwell, received the donation on behalf of the camp and invited Intech down this summer to see the hard-earned money in action making a difference in the lives of kids.
