GREENVILLE, South Carolina – TD SYNNEX hosted its annual charity event, Share the Magic, Saturday night with record-breaking fundraising total of $2.8 million. About 1,200 TD SYNNEX employees, customers, vendors, sponsors, charity representatives, community leaders, students and families attended the show-stopping event at the Grand Lawn at Hartness.
In Greenville, TD SYNNEX Share the Magic raises funds to benefit A Child’s Haven, Clement’s Kindness, Make-A-Wish South Carolina and Pendleton Place. Saturday’s celebration featured the charities and the children they serve, followed by both silent and live auctions and a “fund-a-wish” as a last push before the grand reveal. The party concluded with dancing and entertainment by Simply Irresistible.
“We are beyond thrilled with the outcome of this year’s TD SYNNEX Share the Magic celebration,” said Peter Larocque, president of North American technology solutions at TD SYNNEX and founder of TD SYNNEX Share the Magic. “Saturday night’s event was the culmination of a year-long effort by our dedicated planning committee, vendors, partners and sponsors, who are so passionate about the charities and what they do for the children and families in our community. We couldn’t be happier and look forward to getting started on Share the Magic 2023.”
Share the Magic’s $2.8 million raised in Greenville is a portion of the $3.65 million raised in North America in 2022 as TD SYNNEX has expanded Share the Magic to six other markets.
“We are incredibly grateful for the funds we receive from TD SYNNEX Share the Magic,” said Tanya Camunas, CEO of A Child’s Haven. “Share the Magic provides our largest annual gift, and year after year we are astounded at the generosity of those who make it happen. These funds allow us to provide childcare-expelled children and their families with behavioral health and therapeutic childcare services for a year at no cost to families, breaking the cycles of poverty, abuse and neglect by treating the whole family. Share the Magic allows A Child’s Haven to deepen our impact and serve even more children in need, and we are truly blessed to be a beneficiary of this amazing initiative.”
Following an “Around the World” theme, the Share the Magic planning team transformed the outdoor space into a small village with cottages offering food and beverages from different countries - a nod to the company’s recent merger, which took TD SYNNEX Share the Magic worldwide.
