At Bravo, our core values are part of everything we do.
Within our commitment to our clients, we also want to be intentional in developing a culture to serve others by supporting and building up our community.
Each year, Bravo Games allows us to take a little break from daily work to connect as an organization in fun ways as we tangibly live out our values. Not only is it a great way to give back by raising money for charities in our own backyard, but it also allows us to develop relationships with co-workers with whom we may not typically interact. It's activities and cultural initiatives like this that bring our organization closer together and tighten our commitment to the mission and to our values.
Bravo Games 2019
The 4th Annual Bravo Games took place in May as employees participated in friendly, competitive events in support of five Northeast Ohio charities. Each event allowed teams to earn points for their charity, and the team with the most at the end of two weeks received the largest donation.
This year’s theme revolved around board games and teams enjoyed games such as murder mystery, trivia and Bravo-editions of Guess Who and Pictionary. And of course, it wouldn’t be Bravo without a costume contest where the teams dressed as their favorite board game. Can you tell which childhood games were represented?
Bravo Games culminated with a picnic lunch and last-minute opportunities for teams to earn more points by playing giant lawn games of Jenga, Kerplunk and Operation.
In the spirit of giving back to our community, we are pleased to announce that $4,500 was donated to our designated charities, and over 21 hours were spent by employees volunteering during the two weeks.
The team representing Open Doors Academy took first place with $2,000. Laura’s Home (a ministry of The City Mission) received $1,000, Cleveland Food Bank received $750, Friendship Animal Protective League received $500 and Fostering Hope received $250. We look forward to what next year’s games will bring.
