Doing Good in Our Communities

→ Dayton’s Puppy Play Date: Due to the great flood, 4 Paws Puppy Play date in June was moved to July 26. Puppy Play is a great chance for folks to get some good snuggles and puppy kisses! Associates pay $2 to play with the puppies in the office lobby, or they can donate an item off of the charity’s wish list.

→ Dayton Victor’s Pride has announced the Oktoberfest Golf Outing on September 14 at PipeStone golf course. It will feature prizes, great food and beer samplings, and part of the golf fee will benefit 4 Paws for Ability. Bring your friends, customers and family! Victor’s Pride is a community driven group by Heidelberg Dayton Associates. We take pride in fundraisers, events and donating our time to help better our community. Throughout the year Victor’s Pride supports projects varying from All Hands On Deck, working with our selected charity, the 5K race, local disaster relief efforts and much more. We thrive on helping others. If you are interested in joining our team or would like more information, please reach out to Susan Kneidl or Holly Hoffman. We meet monthly on Wednesday mornings at 8:30 a.m.

→ Cincinnati Victor’s Pride held a friendly in-house competition in July to see which team could bring in the most school supplies for Cincinnati College Preparatory Academy, a school located in our neighborhood. A total of 1,931 items were collected! The winning team was the Admin/Supply Chain/Revenue Management team who collected 862 items. Associates in the Print Shop/Garage collected 591 items and the Sales team collected 478 items.

→ The USA Patriots, America’s Amputee Softball Team, came to Cincinnati on July 18 and played an exhibition game against a group of Cincinnati first responders (fire fighters and police officers). Held at the Mid-America Ballyard, the game benefited the organization’s camp for children with limb differences. The organization, sponsored in-part by Budweiser, began in 2011 (originally called the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team) for the purpose of rehabilitating veterans coming home from combat having suffered the life-altering loss of limbs. The team has traveled to over 42 states and US Territories playing able-bodied teams in both exhibition and tournament play.

A special thanks to Team Budweiser’s Lyndsey Longshore, Bobby Coorey and Greg Seinker, as well as all the Associates who came out to the game. Heidelberg treated the Patriots and other participants to a Reds baseball game, where they were featured on the Jumbotron.
