Good aim, good will


Throwing a welding machine is usually sign of serious frustration, but at Kemppi Personnel Summer Party the Minarc welder flew out of pure good will. In Angry Birds inspired throwing contest the goal was to knock down a tower of cardboard boxes with Minarc welder.

This time winner was company’s chairman Jouko Kemppi who donated the grand prize, Minarc Evo 150, to charity. Traditionally Summer Party holds charity raffle and company agrees to double the profit. This time the raffle money was added with the price of Minarc Evo and total sum reached 3 850 Euros. All of the money was donated to children’s neurological unit in Central Hospital of Päijät-Häme and to children’s safe house project in Kenya through World Vision Finland.
