In late October 2019, Aria Technologies hosted Charity Poker Nights and an Online Auction to help raise money for TelcoTogether Foundation. Telco together is a charity that brings together the telecommunications industry in support of disadvantaged communities in the areas of indigenous communities, homelessness and food security, mental health and youth unemployment.
Aria held an online auction that ran for 2 weeks with fantastic items donated by our generous Channel Partners and Vendors. The auction was open to everyone across Australia.
The Poker tournaments were held in Sydney and Melbourne, with the winners from each state playing off to win a ticket to the Annual Aria Technologies Sales Conference 2020 to be held in Vietnam. There were approximately 20 people that took part in each state and this helped make both events a success.
The winner in the Sydney tournament was Garry Hearne
The winner of the Melbourne tournament was Mitch Dupljanin
The overall winner the Poker Night Tournament and the ticket to the Aria Technologies was Mitch Dupljanin who will be joining the Aria Team in Vietnam in 2020.
Due to the generosity of our partners and everyone that attended the Poker Tournaments in each state we exceeded our own expectations, raising $8,000.
We donated $6,000 to the TelcoTogether Foundation and $2,000 to another worthy cause.
