Washington, DC (November 21, 2011) – TRAK Companies, a leader in temporary and direct-hire professional support staffing and information management, announced that they are the Teardrops to Rainbows' Corporate Sponsor of the Year recipient revealed at the Ninth Annual Teardrops to Rainbows Gala on November 11th, 2011.
Teardrops to Rainbows (T2R), based in Fairfax, Virginia, is an all volunteer organization which provides support, services and financial assistance to area children with cancer and their families. T2R specifically focuses on helping families stay connected and better manage their day-to-day household responsibilities while supporting a cancer-stricken child. More than 500 gathered for the annual gala at the Ritz Carlton in Tysons Corner for dinner and silent auction, which raised over $100,000.
TRAK was selected as the recipient for this prestigious award that honors partners for their involvement, support, and assistance to the T2R families. Several TRAK employees have been involved with T2R since 2005. In 2011 TRAK put forth an initiative to put their full volunteer efforts into T2R, which resulted in their entire company getting involved. "I have worked with Bernadette for many years – and it's all about relationships! She has been a supporter of T2R since its inception and has now taken her support to the next level by adopting T2R as TRAK's charity of choice," said Lois Lyons, founder of T2R.
"It has been incredible to watch the growth this organization has experienced under the direction of Lois Lyons, and how much impact she and her management team of volunteers are having on these families," said Bernadette Gilson, Executive Director of TRAK Services. "We are thrilled to receive this honor – to accept an award for something that our staff has come to love and for something that is so important to our community."
