AIT Worldwide Logistics Hosts Successful Appreciation Event

Published on: Apr 17, 2018


The inaugural Cookout for Kids also raised money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE (April 13, 2018) – Last week, the AIT Worldwide Logistics office in Memphis hosted their first annual Cookout for Kids, an appreciation event for customers, partners and other transportation industry professionals.

The Cookout for Kids also served as an opportunity for the AIT-Memphis team to fundraise in support of the company’s national partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. Two raffles were held – one online and another on-site at the event. Invitees were offered the chance to enter the online raffle by making a web donation to St. Jude while those in attendance were entered into the on-site contest by simply dropping a business card into the raffle bowl. Entry for the on-site raffle was free to all visitors, but many chose to make a voluntary donation to St. Jude. In total, more than $900 was raised.

Despite windy weather conditions, the inaugural event was well-attended by guests who enjoyed smoked pulled pork served hot off the grill. The station manager from AIT-Memphis anticipates holding the second annual Cookout for Kids in the spring of 2019.
