California Elementary School to Benefit from DVDO Online Auction

Sep 25, 2006 11:37 AM

Anchor Bay Technologies and DVDO announce they will donate proceeds from their October online charity auction to Cumberland Elementary School in nearby Sunnyvale, CA. Each month DVDO donates proceeds from an online auction via the website http://www.dvdo.com/charityauction to various worthwhile causes including the Hurricane Katrina relief effort, Outreach Africa and most recently the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. To date, DVDO and Anchor Bay have raised over $14,000 for charity with plans to continue the program until December and possibly beyond.

The beginning of October means another school year is in full swing and like most school districts Sunnyvale and Cumberland Elementary suffer from a lack of funding. To help ease the crunch, each year the PTA hosts a school-wide Walkathon which serves as Cumberland Elementary’s largest fundraiser. Cumberland is home to over 500 culturally diverse children with about 50% of the student population representing ethnic minorities. Proceeds from the event support an array of needs and programs including the science fair, book fair, a computer lab, band, garden, fine art and music programs, physical education equipment and more. When combined with the Walkathon, funds raised from DVDO’s auction will help Cumberland achieve their mission to maximize each student’s learning potential and self-worth.

For October, DVDO will auction off an iScan VP30 with Precision Deinterlacing Card and Silver Front Panel. The VP30 is a high definition video processor and A/V switcher that sets a new standard for up, down, and cross-converting all video sources and comes with the full manufacturer warranty. Total retail value for the package is $2,377.

DVDO’s Senior Director of Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Gary Chappell said, “Education at an elementary level is greatly dependent on visual aids and other resources that many teachers end up paying for out of pocket. We understand that quality educational programs are an integral part of setting children up for success in the future. Once the decision was made to select a local recipient for the charity proceeds, we looked for a deserving school nearby and Cumberland proved to be an excellent candidate.”

Several DVDO and Anchor Bay employees also volunteer with the Second Harvest Food Bank in San Jose, CA. Team members contribute by sorting and distributing food for member agencies, helping with the upkeep of the food bank and performing data entry to assist with inventory. DVDO also contributes to the Elf Foundation’s Rooms of Magic Program. The Elf Foundation is a 501 C3 non-profit charity that brings the enchantment of uplifting music and film to sick children throughout the country.
