Every NFL Season, CloudVO hosts its Annual CloudTouchdown Football Pool as a way to enhance the sense of community throughout its partner locations. With close to 150 participants, the event is not only a great way to connect people through participation in a fun activity, but CloudVO donates a portion of the proceeds to a charitable organization. We are pleased to announce CloudVO’s donation of $300.00 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
The football pool itself is not just for sports enthusiasts, but also acts as a relationship builder for workspace members, as it sparks competitive yet friendly water cooler conversations. The buy-in is a modest $25.00 for the entire season and there is a winner each week, so earning your money back is more than doable! Everything is managed online, and participants use a point system to rank the teams they think will win for that particular week. Whoever has the most points at the end of each week wins a small pot of cash. The amount depends on the number of participants. At the end of the season there is a 1st through 5th place overall winner, and then of course a portion of the proceeds are always reserved for donation to organizations such as Boys & Girls Clubs.
Chase Curtis, CloudVO’s Football Commissioner, a.k.a “The CloudTouchdown Commish” said, “For the past three years participation in the pool has grown because it allows our workspace members to share something in common. Participants ‘razz’ each other each week in a harmless fashion over who is ahead in the game. This creates connections, and on top of it, we get to make a charitable donation. Bringing people together, donating to a great cause mixed in with football – that’s just fun all the way around.”
CloudVO is proud to have created this annual tradition and looks forward to many more seasons of charitable contributions and thinking of fun ways to connect people for the greater good.
