cStor and NetApp came together to host a casino & poker night to raise funds to support the Toys for Tots foundation.
cStor and NetApp hosted their third annual casino night and poker tournament on Tuesday, December 3rd. All proceeds raised from the event support the purchase of toys for the Toys for Tots foundation. The Toys for Tots Foundation then distributes the toys to less fortunate children in the community.
“We love doing this event! It’s great fun for our clients, our partners and co-workers and gives us a way to ensure we all share our success with others during the holiday season.” said Larry Gentry, President and COO of cStor, adding, “Everyone pitches in from the Grunberg Management who owns the building, the Dream Dealers who run the casino night for us, the caterer Blue Adobe Santa Fe Grille and our partners like NetApp.”
cStor and their partners, including NetApp, started the event as a way to give back during the holiday season while having a little fun. Last year the group donated a total of 85 toys, all valued over $25, including bikes, large toys and other children’s items valued; the total was valued at $3500.
