When Geeks Dance, Charity Wins – Vitaver Announces Second Annual “Dancing Geeks” Charity Competition for IT Professionals
Ft. Lauderdale, FL. – Vitaver, a Florida-based staffing firm announces their second annual “Dancing Geeks” contest designed to promote charitable giving and bring the IT/Technology community together in a fun and meaningful way. Vitaver has long supported local community organizations and now aims to spread their mission of community engagement through an entertaining and fun contest. DancingGeeks.com encourages IT and Tech professionals to submit dorky dance videos set to their favorite songs. The contest intends to raise awareness while also promoting local IT/Tech businesses and encourages viewers to vote on the dorkiest and funniest dance routines, with Vitaver donating $10,000 to charity in the name of the winners: $5,000 to the First Place, $3,000 to the Second Place, and $2,000 to the Third Place.
The contest will allow voting on the dorkiest and funniest dance routines, with Vitaver donating $10,000 to charity in name of the winners which will increase with the participation of additional corporate sponsors adding award money to be given on their names to the three charities.
IT and Tech professionals are encouraged to enter the video competition and show their best geek dance moves. The rules are simple:
1) record your dorkiest dance moves to a song of your choice,
2) select charity to which you want to contribute money,
3) submit the entry through the DancingGeeks.com website.
The online content will be accepting submissions via DancingGeeks.com from November 15 through August 14, 2014. Voting ends on August 15th, with first, second, and third place winners announced on September 1, 2014.
In 2013, we donated to ClassWish.org – $5,000, Children Cancer Research Fund – $3,000, Canines for Disabled Kids – $2,000.
“We want to bring the IT/Tech community together for charity in the most hilarious way we know possible,” says Pablo Vitaver, CEO of Vitaver. “The goal is to support nonprofits that are doing great work, while also supporting our fellow business community. And, we want to dispel the myth that geeks can’t dance!”
