Supply Chain Auction Corporate Olympics
On April 22, the IT, Finance and HR teams competed in events like corn hole, Sharpie archery, water pong and a scavenger hunt. IM Program Manager David Poulliott won the 50/50 raffle and promptly donated it back to the March for Babies fundraising.
This week was filled with nostalgia for many of the Erie Engineers as they got to play with LEGOs for a great cause! Global Technology’s first annual LEGO Challenge Fundraising Event benefit two upcoming charity events, the March of Dimes’ March for Babies and the Junior Achievement’s JA Bowl-A-Thon. Teams spend a week creating LEGO masterpieces. Then, teams across GE Transportation were given the opportunity to vote for the winner, with their wallets. The final winner was “Snappy” the Tier 4 engine.
