DVI in the Community
Introducing the first ever DVI Corporate Ping Pong Challenge
Tournament Information - Saturday, October 20, 2018, from 2:00 to 5:00 PM at the Monarch Music Hall in Peoria, IL
David Vaughan Investments is excited to present a new and unique charity event to the Greater Peoria Area. Peoria’s Corporate Ping Pong Challenge will surely be an energetic, competitive and overall entertaining event. Local businesses and other organizations will sponsor teams to compete on their behalf in one of the most intense and vigorous sports around: ping pong. Teams will compete in doubles-matches and will fight for the top three podium spots. Winners will be crowned “Peoria’s Best Ping Pong Players” and retain bragging rights.
For those attending to cheer on their team or simply wanting to get-in on some of the ping pong action, there will be a variety of side activities, open-play ping pong tables, raffles, and catered food. So come out and enjoy an afternoon of high-level ping pong skills, exclusive entertainment and most importantly the opportunity to support one of our community’s most invaluable non-profit organizations.
All proceeds from the event will go to help Peoria’s South Side Mission, which primarily serves the residents living in one of the 100 poorest zip codes in the nation. With a budget entirely supported via donations, the South Side Mission provides hope to the community and opportunity for positive change. Starting in 1925, the Mission has grown to care for over 15,000 people each year through community ministry, homeless shelter, food pantry, outreach, and career training ministries.

Red Cross Blood Drives

Every four months, employees and family members of each organization, along with other scheduled and walk-in donors, roll up their sleeves for this worthy cause. Since March 25, 2009, we have welcomed 51 first time donors, collected 511 pints of blood, and according to the Red Cross, have impacted potentially 1,500+ lives! If you are eligible, please consider taking the time to donate and give the gift of LIFE to patients in need.
