Garaventa Lift’s Fundraising Power Team for ORBIS

On Saturday May 15, 2010 Garaventa Lift employees took part in a fundraiser for ORBIS Pull for Sight at the Vancouver International Airport. Debbie Wilson approached the employees of Garaventa Lift with this unique opportunity to raise funds for ORBIS, a non-profit humanitarian organization dedicated to saving sight worldwide.

Garaventa Lift employees raised over $3,000 for ORBIS through pledges, personal donations,  bake sales and the sale of homemade chili. Garaventa Lift received the Top Fundraising Award at the ORBIS Pull for Sight 2010.

Our team of 20 fundraisers pulled a FedEx Boeing 727 cargo airplane 12 feet in 7.022 seconds. Garaventa’s Power Team placed 7th out of 22 teams.

Thanks to everyone who participated in fundraising, donating and pulling the plane.

Go Garaventa Go!
