The White Agency’s MD Andrew Davenport has auctioned off his ‘secretarial services’ to the highest bidder amongst staff as part of the agency’s involvement in the annual RSPCA Cupcake Day.
The associate creative director Tony Story paid $400 for the privilege of having his boss be his P.A. for a day.
In addition to raffling off a host of prizes donated by staff and clients, White’s employees let their creative juices loose in the kitchen, baking up a storm for the annual fundraising event.
From the always popular vanilla and chocolate cupcake varieties, to some more inventive designs including doggie inspired cupcakes and even hamburger cupcakes, everyone in the agency got behind the cause, raising more than $6,500 for the fight against animal cruelty.
This is the third year White has participated in RSPCA’s Cupcake Day and continues the agency’s commitment to ensuring staff can be actively involved in charitable activities, which have this year also included a fundraiser for Westmead Children’s Hospital and the 2014 Vinnies CEO Sleepout.
“Charity involvement means a lot to our staff and therefore it’s really important to us as a company – activities such as RSPCA’s Cupcake Day allows us to have some fun while contributing to a really important cause,” said Andrew Davenport. “After all those cupcakes it’s just lucky that White also offers Bootcamp sessions for staff!”
