During the month of October, SK&A employees participated in a “Beard-A-Thon”, competing to see who could grow the thickest and quickest beards for charity. The event was organized by Controller, Janice Snyder and HR Manager, Gabrielle Cohen and employees were able to donate money via a gofundme page. The participants included: Principal - Walid Choueiri; Senior Project Manager - Upendra Poudel; Project Managers - Nima Arjomandnia, Dan Cocciardi, Tom Garman, and Murat Seyidoglu; and Project Engineers - Ahmed Al-Rahmani, Milad Mohamadzadeh, Stefan Pavlovic, and David Stringer.
At the end of the month, the winners were announced with first place going to Nima Arjomandnia’s charity Comfort Cases ($504.90), second place going to Walid Choueiri’s charity Lina’s Wish ($252.50), and third place going to Milad Mohamadzadeh’s charity Child Foundation ($252.50). SK&A also generously matched 100% of the proceeds made from the fundraiser.
