Synchrony Financial takes dive for NFCC

Community Charities benefits from unique local fundraiser

Synchrony Financial employee Mary Ann Hagan in costume as the “Snow Queen” takes a dip for charity at the company’s “Doubles Dive” in Alpharetta last week. Proceeds raised in Alpharetta will go to North Fulton Community Charities.

ALPHARETTA, Ga. – Employees from consumer financial services company Synchrony Financial in Alpharetta took part in a “dive” for charity by sliding into a pool at the Windward Lake Club last week.

The dive was part of the Stamford, Conn.-based company’s “Doubles Dive,” a charitable event that has raised more than $70,000 at eight of the company’s locations throughout the United States, including Alpharetta.

A portion of the proceeds will go to North Fulton Community Charities, which offers food, clothing, direct financial aid, classes and other opportunities to help residents move forward toward financial stability and self-sufficiency.

“We started the Doubles Dive as a fun way to bring our employees together, challenge ourselves and cheer each other on.” said Liz Blanks, a Synchrony Financial senior vice president in Alpharetta.

“We also wanted this event to have a tie-in to raise money for charity. Events such as these underscore Synchrony’s continued commitment to being a good corporate citizen and to helping working families move forward in the communities where our employees live and work.”
