SYRACUSE, NY – POMCO Group, one of the nation’s largest benefits administrators, made a donation of $1,000 to support Oswego County Opportunities’ annual Retro Bowl fundraising event which took place on April 5 at Lakeview Lanes in Fulton.
OCO has partnered with POMCO Group since 2006 for the administration of its self-funded employee benefits plan.
Each year, POMCO Group has supported OCO’s annual fundraiser and Retro Bowl event which raises awareness and funding for the programs that OCO offers to Oswego County and its community members.
According to Vanessa Flynn, vice president, client services at POMCO Group, “Oswego County Opportunities does tremendous work in Oswego County, particularly in the areas of health and nutrition services and education. Since the health and wellness of our community is a value that we share with OCO, and because it is, and has been, an important business partner to POMCO Group over the past eight years, it is important to us to support its fundraising efforts.”
The money raised in 2014 from OCO’s annual Retro Bowl fundraising event will focus on ways to reduce and eliminate hunger in Oswego County.
According to OCO’s executive director Diane Cooper-Currier, every level of support from businesses and members of the community helps to make a difference.
“We are grateful for the ongoing support that we have received from POMCO Group in helping us to meet our fundraising goals. We value the support of our business partners as we strive to make a difference in our community,” she said.
