ISG members collect $35,000 at their 2016 Spring meeting for Kraddick’s Kidd’s Kids Program to help children with chronic or terminal illnesses.

Shawnee, KS (PRWEB) June 9, 2016

The Identification Systems Group (ISG), the nationwide network of local identification system integrators, announces its donation to the Kraddick Foundation at the 2016 ISG Annual Spring Meeting. Each year the ISG raises money to a selected charity and this year The Kraddick Foundation’s Kidd’s Kids program was selected. The 2016 contribution is the highest in ISG history at $35,000!

Kidd’s Kids primary goal is to provide children (ages 5 to 12), who have a chronic or terminal illness or are physically challenged, with an unforgettable adventure. Throughout the year the Kidd’s Kids program and the Kraddick Foundation work hard to raise the funds necessary to send these special kids on an all-expenses paid, fun-filled vacation to Walt Disney World® in Florida. Most funding comes from donations made by listeners to the Kidd Kraddick Morning Show, corporate sponsors and various fundraising events.

“We were blown away by the support and donation from ISG! This generous donation will go toward making some very deserving children happy at Walt Disney World this year. We enjoyed meeting ISG members from around the country, and we can’t thank them enough!” – Caroline Cradick, Executive Director of the Kraddick Foundation.

ISG Executive Director, Tom Stiles, solicited auction items and cash donations from its Members and Partners to raise a record contribution this year. “The ISG wishes to thank its Members and Partners for their generous contributions to the success of the golf tournament and auction,” said Tom Stiles. “We are pleased to contribute to this wonderful, positive children’s charity and feel honored to help give smiles and laughter to children in need of a happy adventure! We look forward to another successful event next year.”
