January 2015 - Commercial Investigations 10 for 10 in 2014 Wrap Up
What a year 2014 was for Commercial Investigations LLC! We turned 10 years old and wanted to celebrate by giving back to the
community. The celebration started on March 8th with Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids’ Sake 2014. CI sponsored two “Bigs” and
two “Littles” for a day of bowling. It looked like they had so much fun that on April 4th CI decided to try out the bowling for ourselves!
Five of our staff members participated in the Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids’ Sake at Spare Time in Latham, NY. We enjoyed a
fun night out while raising money to benefit the children in our community.
The springtime celebration continued in April when CI donated to the YMCA of Buffalo Niagara’s annual campaign. The money donated ensured that four children in the community had the opportunity to participate in youth sports leagues and provided one week of quality after-school child care for a child in need.
By May CI was ready for another celebration they could participate in. So, on May 20th five staff members attended the 22nd Annual
SEFCU Monopoly Tournament to benefit the Center for Disability Services. Our staff enjoyed a little competitive fun while raising money for a great cause.
When summer finally arrived in upstate New York, CI was very ready for the next birthday celebration with an ice cream social. On June 25th the staff headed to 16 Handles in East Greenbush, NY to benefit St. Paul’s Center. Summer is short in upstate New York so we quickly followed up this celebration with two more. On July 21st one of CI’s investigators attended the Golf Classic 2014 to benefit
Berkshire Farm Center and Services for Youth. Soon after on August 16th CI sold the most ducks to benefit the first Capital Region
Sponsor-A-Scholar Rubber Duck Derby.
It was hard to believe fall was here and it would be the end of 2014 before we knew it. Before the snow arrived seven of the CI staff
members got out to enjoy the end of the nice weather at the 2014 Bassett Healthcare Network Cupola 5k Run/Walk in Cooperstown,
NY. We moved the celebration inside in November to attend the Rome Hospital Foundations Annual Gala at the Turning Stone Resort.
Much to our dismay, December was here and our final celebration had arrived. We found a wonderful way to end the year and our 10
for 10 Birthday Celebration. Four of our CI staff members headed to the Ronald McDonald house in Albany, NY to prepare a meal for
the families that benefit from the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region.
As you can see, 2014 was an amazing year for Commercial Investigations! We enjoyed spreading our 10th Birthday Celebration
throughout the entire year. We were able to help our community in many ways and had a blast while doing it. As a matter of fact, we
had so much fun that we are going to keep going in 2015!! CI is looking for charities that need our help. If anyone would like to suggest a cause we could donate our time to please contact us at [email protected] We are looking very forward to another productive and exciting year. Happy New Year and all the best in 2015!
