Fundraiser: Inaugural Vibe Ride Event Raises Money for GMS Family Fund

On Friday, June 8th, GMS Tucker and Tools Source Warehouse employees stepped out from behind their desks and stepped onto stationary bikes – all for a good cause.

Employees visited Vibe Ride Grant Park to take part in a cycling class to benefit the GMS Family Fund. Riders could either be there in person or participate as a “ghost rider”. In all, more than $2,500 was raised for the GMS Family Fund.

“For the first fun-raising event for the GMS Family Fund, Kasey Warner came to me with the idea. Anyone who comes to me with an idea for an inexpensive event to raise money, I will definitely look into it,” said Mandie Dillard, VP of Program Development for the GMS Family Fund.  “The purpose for this event was to bring awareness to the GMS Family Fund and bring our GMS employees and Tool Source employees together. The event lasted 45 minutes and we were able to raise $2,600 which is at least two grants from the GMS Family Fund.”
