For the Love of Experience
At the CE Group, experience is the heart of our business. Since 1990, we’ve created events and campaigns designed to foster joy and meaningful connection. Over this 30+ year span, we have designed and executed elaborate galas, festivals, conferences, grand openings, and activations that have left audiences with unforgettable moments filled with connection. Though these projects have been highly significant, we can’t help but feel the most proud of our work with community nonprofits and organizations that are making a difference in the lives of others.
How we show up for our community has always been an important part of CE Group culture. Throughout the years, we have donated time, talent and funding to a variety of nonprofits and have been dedicated to finding and creating moments of hope and joy. We have worked alongside entities such as Any Baby Can, THRU Project, and Charity Ball Association on projects such as events, races, and fundraising galas. We have also orchestrated grand-openings for local educational and inclusive organizations like the DoSeum and Morgan’s Wonderland.
Introducing Champions of Experience, a ce group giving initiative
Champions of experience is a company-wide initiative where we lean into our existing partnerships to create one-of-a-kind experiences for those who otherwise may not have the opportunity. We believe in the power of memorable moments and stand by the idea that experience and service to others brings us together. While we have always been charitable, this year we are highly committed to working with a variety of community partners to create lasting memories. We know that it will be an impactful year.
YoungLives Day at the Zoo
To kick-off this initiative, our team partnered with YoungLives, a local organization supporting teen mothers and their children. On January 29th, 2023, these families had the opportunity to participate in a full day of hands-on activities at the San Antonio Zoo. Moms and their children enjoyed a catered lunch overlooking the hippo exhibit and made memories together as they experienced exclusive animal encounters such as a giraffe feeding, a lorikeet interaction, and kangaroo petting. Moms also walked away from the event with bounce-back tickets for another day of entry, provided by the Zoo. Our team had the ability to help mothers with their children as they made memories together.
“Thank you so much for the amazing zoo day experience for our teen moms and babies with YoungLives. The girls made sweet memories that day and your team was amazing in hosting us. We are forever grateful for your generosity to this community!
-YoungLives Director, Megan Luevano
