This past weekend was a busy one here at CAPS! There were two events that CAPS not only sponsored, but actively participated (and WON) in. Giving back is something that is very important to our company culture, and so is having some a lot of fun. Make sure to check back to see the second event but first:
Friday, June 27 was the United Rentals Bay Run Fishing Tournament down in San Leon to support the Wounded Warriors Project. CAPS was an official tournament sponsor for the event and our own Dave Wasson was entered in the fishing tournament. The event consisted of a sponsorship dinner Thursday night at Top Water Grill and the fisherman’s check in at 6:00 the next morning. New to the tournament this year was the Silent Auction, where participants were allowed to bid to fish with a member of the United Rentals management. All of the proceeds raised went directly to the Wounded Warrior Project. CAPS chose to participate and we won Jason Rose, District Manager of HVAC and Power. Wasson and Rose have been friends for quite some time, so this dynamic duo might have reason to do with the great luck on the water.
After a long day out on the water, Wasson came home with a winning catch! He took home the “First Place Redfish” weighing in at 7 lbs and 80z, at 27 3/4 inches! The contest had a different first place winner until Wasson returned with only 15 minutes to spare!
This event benefited the Wounded Warrior Project. The goal of the project is to “make a positive, lasting impact on the lives of injured service members on a number of levels.” They do this through raising awareness and enlisting the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, supporting injured servicemen and women, and providing unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs. The three main ways you can lend support include: donate, host an event (much like United Rentals), or volunteer. CAPS could not be more proud to give back to an organization that does so much for others. More information about The Wounded Warrior Project can be found at http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org.
Thank you, United Rentals, for such a great time!!
