Austin, TX (RestaurantNews.com) Last Friday, HotSchedules sponsored and participated in the Trudy’s Bowl for Kids, the signature annual fundraising event for Big Brothers and Big Sisters (BBBS) of Central Texas. The event was held at Highland Lanes and participants dressed in prom attire. Most of the HotSchedules executive team was in attendance.
David Cantu, VP of Business Development and Co-Founder of HotSchedules remarked, “As members of the Austin and Central Texas community, giving back is something we really enjoy doing. And when giving back also involves doing a fun activity with fellow employees, we’re even more excited to do so.”
The fundraiser makes it possible for BBBS to create and nurture life-changing relationships between the children they serve and caring adult mentors; and they record some impressive results:
- 99% of youth mentored avoid early parenthood
- 99% of youth mentored remain in school
- 94% of youth mentored improve or maintain academic performance
- 93% of youth mentored avoid substance abuse
Trudy’s Tex-Mex Restaurant and Bar is the signature sponsor of the event, and is also a HotSchedules customer. They currently use the Enterprise edition of HotSchedules and are enjoying great success with the solution.
Preston Dumas, one of Trudy’s Operations Managers noted, “We brought HotSchedules to Trudy’s several years ago and we’re still huge fans. Before HotSchedules, we did everything by hand. Now it takes us a lot less time to write schedules, team rosters and manage log notes. It has made us enormously more efficient.”
Partnering with Trudy’s to benefit Big Brothers and Big Sisters will have a long-lasting impact on the lives of children, and HotSchedules is more than pleased to have been a part of this worthwhile event.
