CloudSixteen is proud to have helped sponsor Team Trace in The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Man of the Year fundraising competition for the Austin area. Trace Hight was awarded runner-up in the annual competition after raising more than $45,000 for the organization’s leukemia and other blood cancer treatment research.
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Man and Woman of the Year competitions are carried out in communities across the country every year in order to help raise funds for awareness of and research for blood cancer. Every dollar a candidate raises counts as one vote, and at the end of a ten week period, whoever has the most votes in their community earns the title of Man or Woman of the Year.
At CloudSixteen, we are always happy to be able to give back to our community however we can, and we extend our congratulations to Trace and his team for their success in this year’s fundraising event.
Because the recent Bastrop and Steiner Ranch wildfires caused such severe damage to homes and businesses in the central Texas area, Cloud 8 Sixteen, Inc. team members decided to help those who lost their homes and possessions by donating non-perishable items to the Capitol Area Food Bank. Items donated included bottled water, canned goods, baby food, diapers, and clothing.
Cloud 8 Sixteen, Inc. Human Resources manager Sarah Gerald delivered the donated items to the donation center located at 8212 South Congress Avenue. The team at Cloud 8 Sixteen, Inc. hopes that our donations make a difference in the lives of those affected by the fires and our thoughts are with the individuals and families who lost so much.
On Friday, September 30th, the team at Cloud  Sixteen, Inc. volunteered to help out at the Austin Special Olympics Bocce Ball tournament. In the morning, Cloud team members helped unload trucks and set up for the day’s events, and served as official scorekeepers and timers for the games. In the afternoon, team members continued to serve as scorekeepers and referees and helped event staff clean up at the end of the day. Big thanks to the Austin Special Olympics for putting on such a great event where athletes and volunteers alike had a fantastic time.
