St. Maarten – A fun Scavenger Hunt event on June 26 by TelEm Group personnel and management has raised much needed cash for the Love of Kids Foundation. The company’s management and personnel donned fun costumes and went on an island-side “treasure hunt” to test their map reading and general knowledge skills. The personnel decided to donate what they raised in the event and the management matched the amount raised by personnel and a little more.

The checks with what they raised were presented to the foundation’s president Heather Mercuur, at the TelEm Group main Building on Monday.

“We are very grateful to TelEm Group personnel and management for their efforts. Everyone can be assured that the funds will be well spent,” Mercuur said.

Love of Kids has been in existence for the past three years with the aim of bringing attention, awareness and support to parents and children with learning disorders.

“We have worked remarkably well on a very small budget as we bring awareness to the general community as well as children and parents who need expert support,” Mercuur said.

Representative of TelEm Group Personnel Association, Abigail Peterson, made the check presentation on behalf of personnel, while the Manager of Marketing & Sales Carmen Lake-Reyes made a second check presentation on behalf of TelEm Group’s management.

TelEm Group’s Chief Financial Officer, (CFO) Helma Etnel, has congratulated the TelEm Group Personnel Association for organizing the successful Scavenger Hunt event with the assistance of David McGregor. A total of 15 teams took part this year.

“The event supports the management’s team-building and morale boosting efforts with the added bonus this year of a donation to a deserving community group,” Etnel said.

The winner of this year’s TelEm Group Scavenger Hunt was HOTMESS in the Cuckoo’s nest 0317 with Tampax Tyrants 0327 and Old Dutty Bastards 3840 placing 2nd and 3rd respectively. The Most Creative Team award went to the team HOT MESS.
