Apache Awards $100,000 to Louisiana Charities in Give Where We Live Campaign

Apache recently celebrated its first Give Where We Live 2011 Facebook contest with a festive celebration awarding $100,000 to 10 of Louisiana’s Acadiana-area charities.

Representatives from the winning charities, Apache’s Lafayette employees and senior management, along with local elected officials were among the crowd of 150-plus in attendance at the Thursday check presentation held at Lafayette Crowne Plaza.

In an effort to give back to the communities in which we operates, Apache kicked off its debut of the Give Where We Live 2011 Facebook contest in early summer. The program is a grassroots effort to unite Apache employees and the local communities through the competition, which was hosted on the Apache Outreach Facebook page. The company plans to continue this new tradition in other areas where we operate.

For the program launch, applications from nonprofits were accepted between June 9 and July 15. Lafayette staff chose 10 charities from the 50 entries, posting the top contenders on the Apache Outreach Facebook page. Site visitors voted for their favorite organizations between Aug. 8 and Sept. 5. Anyone with a Facebook account could vote once daily, and applicants were encouraged to campaign for votes.
The top five finalists were awarded a total of $95,000: Dreams Come True, $50,000; Dreams Foundation, $25,000; Healing House, $10,000; Healing for Heroes, $5,000; and Maddies’ Footprints, $5,000. The remaining five contenders receiving $1,000 grants each were: Food Net; Heart Strings and Angel Wings; Rebuilding Together; Jeff Davis Communities Against Domestic Abuse (CADA); and Hearts of Hope.

The contest garnered nearly 7,000 Facebook fans, more than 20,000 votes (the winner received 8,000), and more than 500,000 post views.
