Redfish Gives Back – Announcing the Annual “Redfish Technology Young Entrepreneur Scholarship”

 

Philanthropy and community service have always been tenets in Redfish Technology’s mission to “Diligently work to preserve and improve the quality of life in our community.” To that end, Redfish CEO Rob Reeves has paired up with Wood River High School’s senior class president Jake Gorham to ease the financial burden of secondary education (college & trade schools) with a donation of $1,000 to the Blaine County Education Foundation.

 

As a compliment to BCEF’s goal “…to focus community resources and raise funds for the students of Blaine County School District, promoting academic excellence, equitable education, and a healthy and sustainable student environment.”, the Redfish Technology scholarship is aimed at helping students who show initiative, creativity and drive and can be applied towards either the first year of college or a capital investment for a local Wood River Valley based business. Recipients of Blaine County Education Foundation scholarships will be announced in concert with Spring 2020 High School graduation ceremonies.

It was our pleasure to contribute to such an important resource for our local community!

Redfish Rocks Out at the Share Your Heart Ball 2015

Filed under: Community Service

The 2015 Share Your Heart Ball wasn’t voted “Best of the Valley” for Best Charity Event for nuthin’.

It was another rocking great time with inspiring people sharing fabulous stories. The community really comes out to support Camp Rainbow Gold, the oncology youth camp. Many individuals and companies generously donated great silent and live auction items, and paddles were raised to donate cash. Attendees engaged in a variety of games, enjoyed a lovely dinner, and then enjoyed the groovy tunes of No Limits.

Redfish Technology made a strong showing this year with a company 12-top table. The fishes tried their hand at the wine ring toss, sent up pine cone prayers, and not-so-quietly bid at the great variety of silent auction items. When it came time to donate the group raised paddles high all around the table! Then we headed to the dance floor and cut that rug!

Last Friday Mike had to leave work early, coming into the office and setting up some final interviews before he headed out to the CenturyLink Arena to play for the Idaho Steelheads.

 

Curry took one shot on goal and lined up some quality shots for the Steelheads in his brief stint on ice Friday night. The 30-year-old Curry played one ECHL season in 2008-09 and had a four-year NCAA career at Minnesota-Duluth. He currently plays for the senior league club the Sun Valley Suns.

 

Thursday night Curry got a phone call from Steelheads coach Brad Ralph asking him to fill in in the first-place showdown with the Reign. The Steelheads were down a defenseman since Charlie Dodero was on loan to the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL.

As top producer this quarter, Executive Recruiter Meredith Dean had the privilege of selecting the beneficiary of this quarter’s ‘One for One’ program funds. Redfish Technology, Nationwide Tech Recruiters headquartered in the Sun Valley area, runs a community service initiative called the ‘One for One’ program. This program designates funds from each placement made to build up a pool of money that is awarded on a quarterly basis; the top producer of the quarter gets the distinction of choosing the beneficiary.

 

Meredith Dean, Tech Recruiter at Redfish Technology, chose to split the One for One funds this quarter between The Advocates and Camp Rainbow Gold. Both of these community organizations provide important services to the community.

 

Meredith presented a check to Director Tricia Swartling of The Advocates. The organization’s mission is to teach people of all ages how to build and maintain healthy relationships. Started in 1991, The Advocates is actively engaged in creating their vision of a compassionate community, free from emotional and physical abuse through education, shelter and support services.

 

“The Advocates is really excited to be a recipient of Redfish Technology’s One for One program. We are always looking for unique partnership opportunities with local businesses for donations of time, talent, and funds to support The Advocates’ services to the community,” stated Tricia Swartling, Executive Director at The Advocates. “I really appreciate Redfish taking the initiative in this area and being a role model for local business philanthropy.”

Funds for Camp Rainbow Gold were used to purchase a table at the upcoming Share Your Heart fundraiser. Camp Rainbow Gold is independent non-profit organization that serves Idaho’s children diagnosed with cancer; established in the mid-1980s, this group provides one of the first children’s oncology camps in the country.

 

“I chose to donate to The Advocates and to Camp Rainbow Gold because they are both fantastic organizations that help our community,” said Meredith Dean, Tech Recruiter and die-hard Seahawk fan. “I’m really looking forward to the Share Your Heart on February 21st – See you there.”

 

About Redfish Technology’s ‘One for One’ Program:

Redfish Technology staff started the ‘One for One’ Community Service program in 2013. After a year hiatus, in which the Redfish recruiters carried out a Pay It Forward program, the staff has now reactivated the One for One program. Past recipients of One for One funds include: the Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley, and the Sawtooth United Football Club.

 

About Meredith Dean, Executive Recruiter, IT Division:

Meredith has a degree in business from the University of Washington’s Foster School of Business, and enjoyed a successful sales career in the pharmaceutical and health care industry prior to taking up recruiting in the Sun Valley area.
