iWowWe’s Supports “Casino Night” for Children’s Safe Harbor
THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Sept. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Internet technology leader, iWowWe.com, is pleased to announce their support of Children’s Safe Harbor, a children’s advocacy center in Montgomery County, Texas. Their cash donation will go toward supporting the “Betting on Courage” Casino Night event to be held later on in September.
Bill Starkey, CEO of iWowWe, said this support is a cause dear to his heart. “I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to travel around the world and be exposed to the horrible conditions that children are forced to live in. While we think things are better here in our local communities, the problem of child abuse can turn any home into a prison. We must do all we can to stop it,” Starkey said.
According to event organizers, “It takes an entire community to end child abuse.” The proceeds from the event will benefit Children’s Safe Harbor and the kids they serve. The event will be held September 29 at 6:30 pm at The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center and will feature a dinner and special fundraising activities.
The support of this important organization is part of iWowWe’s “iCare. iGive. iWowWe” philanthropic effort that is designed to not only provide direct corporate support for local communities, but inspire iWowWe affiliates worldwide to do the same with their local charities. “Our goal is to lead by example so our affiliates around the world will see the importance of giving back to their local communities,” said Casey Minshew, COO of iWowWe.com.
iWowWe has over 20,000 active independent affiliates located in over 100 countries around the world. “By following our lead, our goal is to lead our affiliates to fulfill our corporate mission statement to ‘inspire, empower, and connect’ people with their dreams … especially a child’s dream of growing up in a loving and nurturing environment,” Minshew said. iWowWe will be participating in several other charity events during the next few months including the Special Olympics.
