Technibus Raises Money For Project Ed Bear Through Coney Lunch
CANTON, Ohio- June 30, 2021
Technibus recently hosted a coney lunch during our employee’s lunch to raise money for the local non-profit, Project Ed Bear. We had an amazing turn out with near one hundred percent participation from all employees! Whether it be challenging each other to see who can eat the most coney’s, participating in our 50/50 raffle, or simply just donating money to the cause.
The record holder for eating the most coney’s was Dylan Kungle with a whopping number of eight (8) coneys! There were over two hundred coney’s prepared for the lunch sale and we raised over eight hundred dollars ($800) for Project Ed Bear! We previously donated Christmas presents in the winter for Project Ed Bear and we plan on doing more fundraising events in the future!
About Project Ed Bear
Project Ed Bear is a volunteer-based non-profit that provides comfort to children suffering from cancer throughout Northeastern Ohio. Project Ed Bear started in 1994 by Susan Summerville, after her son received a non-cancerous diagnosis from bone tumors that had been discovered.
Today, they are making a significant impact by joining in the care of hundreds of children suffering from this disease. To date Project Ed Bear has been able to provide hundreds of thousands of dollars to Akron Children’s Hospital as well as many comforting needs, such as: video game systems and games for all of the beds on the oncology ward as well as the clinic, the newest movies and laptop computers available on the ward, gifts for the treasure chest, toys for the ward and the bear cave as well as a camera, printer and scrapbook supplies.
Project Ed Bear has also paid for the design and decorating of the new clinic at Akron Children’s Hospital that includes an Ed Bear Cave filled with toys and a computer area for the older children.
