Cydcor's "Day of Smiles" Event for Operation Smile Raises Nearly $100,000

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

Cydcor, the leading provider of in-person sales teams, has raised almost $100,000 - and helped more than 415 children receive new smiles - with its network of independently-owned sales offices across the country for Operation Smile, an international children's medical charity, during a recent "Day of Smiles" event.

The event was created by Cydcor to recognize and celebrate Operation Smile's 30th anniversary. Cydcor has been partnering with Operation Smile over the past two years and, along with the sales offices, have already raised enough for two medical missions - one took place last year in Rio De Janiero, and the other one will take place this spring in Mexico.

During the Day of Smiles:

  • Cydcor team members and about 180 independently-owned offices in the United States and Canada all fundraised during the same weekend in October.
  • All participants fundraised by either going door-to-door, business-to-business, or in front of retail locations
  • To demonstrate a sense of unity, all wore their blue Operation Smile tee-shirts, held customized cash collecting cans, and worked together on creative methods of raising money

"We set a goal of raising $90,000 from this weekend-long event - and we surpassed it! I'm not surprised," said Chief Oprating Officer, Vera Quinn. "We're committed to Operation Smile and helping as many children as possible across the globe. I'm so excited to continue our amazing efforts - and know that we have made a difference in hundreds of lives."


"Thanks to the generosity of our Corporate Smile Ambassador, Cydcor, and their compassionate and dedicated teams, we have been able to help hundreds of children and their families receive life changing surgery," said Dr. Bill Magee, CEO and Co-Founder of Operation Smile. "Although they may never know your name, they will never forget your kindness."
