CSR Spotlight: “Dunk-a-Roux” for Stony Brook Children’s

Posted on September 16, 2021

Our New York CSR team put on our first ever “Dunk-a-Roux” fundraiser for Stony Brook Children’s earlier this summer. For this event, a donation bought you a dunk tank throw—you could test your luck or appoint someone more athletic to throw on your behalf. This granted our staff the exciting opportunity to dunk our CEO, Sin Senh, and even Paul Roux, the founder of the company! Our other willing dunkees included Tanya Bissell, Brian Hobbs, Michael Roux, and Rachel Henke.

Stony Brook Children’s is a hospital local to our New York office, offering the most advanced pediatric specialty care in the region. That means that the smallest babies, the sickest children, the most complex pediatric traumas all get sent to Stony Brook Children’s. As an academic medical center actively engaged in research, they offer families access to groundbreaking, and often lifesaving, clinical trials for children.

Not only was this a way to raise money for a great cause, it was also a chance to have some fun and be together as an office in a safe, outdoor setting. We’re proud to have raised over $3,000 for Stony Brook Children’s thanks to our office’s competitive spirit and generous support.
