American Solutions for Business Raises Over $9,000 During Charity Events at National Sales Conference
American Solutions for Business, Glenwood, Minnesota, hosted two independent charity efforts that collectively raised over $9,000 in proceeds. The first was an all-abilities memorial walk on the morning of Saturday, Feb. 19 at the Championsgate Omni Hotel in Orlando. The walk was in honor of late sales associate, Tom Keller, and all proceeds were given to First Church Coral Springs Youth Program. Because Tom taught Sunday School, this program was important to him and his entire family, who were in attendance.
“Helping the youth at the church was his passion,” explained sales associate, and wife of Tom Keller, Livi Dalmau Keller. “When I heard about how many people had signed up to walk and saw all the people waiting in their memorial walk shirts in the foggy darkness at 7 a.m., I knew that Tom would be so proud of everyone. He would also be somewhat embarrassed that a fuss was being made over him.”
Tom was a sales associate with American for 14 years before his passing in November 2020. He was a recipient of American’s GPO Excellence Award. The event raised $6,100 through registration and donations.
ASB’s second charity effort was a Flamingo Race at their poolside social that evening. All proceeds for the race were presented to Say Goodnight to Hunger, affiliated with Feeding America. The race involved participants purchasing a flamingo for $5 to enter the race in the resort’s lazy river. The owners of the winning flamingos won a $250 gift card for the two rounds of the race. The initiative and custom flamingos were sponsored by Phenix Direct.
"It was a great way to showcase fun products," expressed Phenix Direct President, Stuart McLelland. "We are incredibly happy and proud to be associated with American Solutions for Business and we are already looking forward to the next opportunity to get together.”
“These events were not just important to American, but everyone involved,” expressed Dana Zezzo, ASB’s vice president of marketing, vendor relations & events. “Tom’s wife and children have always been proud of the man he was, and his event will create a lasting memory for all. The race by the pool was a relaxing atmosphere that still brought good into the world. We are excited to have been part of both.”
