GLAMOUR MEETS CHARITY – THE ASTech 2018 CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION [INCL. VIDEO]
Gaimersheim – Under the motto Glamour Meets Charity, ASTech held its Christmas celebration at the company headquarters on Friday, December 7. In the afternoon, the employees boarded shuttle buses and rode approximately 50 kilometers to Scheyern, where they were greeted with mulled wine, punch and braziers in the beer garden at the Scheyern Klosterschenke. Afterwards, and to the accompaniment of Christmas music, the doors to the glamorously decorated and beautifully illuminated Scheyrensaal were opened to officially kick-off the 2018 Christmas party. In addition to the Christmas address from managing director Claus, the program also included a generous buffet and a photo booth, plus charitable activities in the spirit of our 2018 CSR engagement.
For the auction, our department managers came up with lots of highly-popular items, feverishly driving up the prices up for a glider flight, bicycle repair service, pizza service for an entire team, private dance lessons, a driving safety course, indoor wall climbing and an evening of bowling. All of the items were successfully auctioned off and presented to the highest bidders in less than an hour.
For those who were not one of the winning bidders during the auction, the organization team had another goodie up its sleeve: a raffle. In the weeks leading up to the Christmas celebration, nearly half of the workforce came up with small gifts and services that were then sold via raffle tickets. Inspired by our CSR activities and with a good dose of fun, it took less than 30 minutes for the raffle basket to empty while others simply threw money into the pot. After all, it was all for a good cause!
The money collected during the Christmas celebration led to the prospect of handing over a large ASTech donation in first quarter 2019 to a recipient selected in advance, thus adding a special element to the party atmosphere. A special evening was had by all, with good music, dancing, wine, conversation and a photo booth. At midnight, everyone enjoyed a safe and comfortable journey home thanks to our bus drivers Tobias and Mario.
Those who wish to look back at this wonderful evening, or in general gain insights into how ASTech celebrates together, are cordially invited to view the ASTech 2018 Christmas Celebration video.
The recipient of the donation will not be revealed here, but we will release more information at the appropriate time. Stay tuned!
Only one day before, on Thursday, December 6, our colleagues in Wolfsburg held their own Christmas celebration at the Hafenstraße location under the motto Games, Fun and Charity. Their evening program included a charity event, prize game and a drone race. The race initially involved each of the five teams building part of the course, and putting the five sections together to create the overall race circuit, with the drones traversing sharp curves, tunnels and steep mountain ascents and descents to create an exciting and fun event!
Following the competitive activities, the guests settled in for a cozy evening, complete with a fabulous buffet, dazzling lights, glamour and Christmas magic, thus giving everyone an opportunity to bring 2018 to an end in a super atmosphere.
