For more than three decades, OLG employees have been dedicating their time and money to two important annual fundraising efforts—campaigns that support United Way and Federated Health Charities. The two most recent campaigns raised more than $98,000 for United Way and more than $100,000 for Federated Health.
These annual campaigns not only allow us to support some great causes, they have also become important opportunities for employees to come together in a special way. From coffee carts, to Diversity potluck lunches, to silent auctions, employees come out in big numbers to provide their support and have fun with their colleagues.

This year’s Federated Health campaign included a “90s Trivia Extravaganza” event, where teams competed against each other to see who could correctly answer the most questions about 90s music, films and sports. It even offered a flashback to the 90s hit TV show ‘Friends’, complete with a ‘Central Perk’ coffee station. The event was a huge success—garnering rave reviews from participants and raising more than $800 for Federated Health.
“The 90s Trivia Extravaganza was so much fun! It took me back to my high school days”, says Michael Arbour, Senior Communications Manager. “What a great way to bring people together for a great cause. I hope they hold one again for the next fundraising campaign.”
