“The companies that survive longest are the ones that work out what they uniquely can give to the world not just growth or money but their excellence, their respect for others, or their ability to make people happy. Some call those things a soul.” -Charles Handy
The One Chicago team is fundraising this year to benefit Operation Smile… keep an eye out for them in the coming weeks with their blue t-shirts and donation cans.
One Chicago, Inc. team members, friends and family gathered in Des Plaines this weekend in support of the philanthropic organization, Operation Smile. This was One Chicago, Inc.’s first annual volleyball tournament and fundraising barbecue for the non-profit. Participants played in organized volleyball games at the park all afternoon and the management team provided food and beverages. Team members enjoyed having the management team run the barbecue for them and lead them in other competitive athletic events.

Operation Smile is a worldwide children’s charity organization that helps treat facial deformities such as cleft lips and cleft palates.
