Share the Magic to expand in 12th year from five TD SYNNEX markets to seven across North America
TD SYNNEX announced today its Share the Magic annual fundraising celebration in Greenville will take place Oct. 8 at Hartness with a goal to raise more than $2 million to benefit four local charities helping children and families.
The theme for the company’s flagship Greenville event will be “Around the World,” embracing the global reach of the company formed in September 2021 by the merger of SYNNEX and Tech Data corporations. With the merger creating the world’s largest IT distributor, Share the Magic is expanding to Texas and Arizona, bringing to seven the number of communities it touches and dramatically growing its reach to serve more children and families.
“It’s incredibly gratifying to see how TD SYNNEX Share the Magic has helped countless children and families during the past 11 years,” said Peter Laroque, President, North America at TD SYNNEX and founder of Share the Magic. “That we now have an impact in communities across North America is both inspiring and humbling.”
This year, Greenville’s TD SYNNEX Share the Magic gala will take place at Hartness, the award-winning 449-acre urban village founded by the Hartness family and located on Greenville’s Eastside on the family’s estate. Hartness hosted the 2021 gala that raised a record $2.17 million.
Since its founding in Greenville in 2011, Share the Magic chapters have been established in Canada, California, Colorado, and Illinois and soon will be expanded to Texas and Arizona. TD SYNNEX Share the Magic has raised more than $17 million across all markets with each hosting its own series of events ranging from galas, celebrations and golf tournaments to silent auctions and fun walks.
Greenville’s chapter supports A Child’s Haven, Clement’s Kindness, Make-A-Wish® South Carolina, and Pendleton Place. Across the network, charities benefited by TD SYNNEX Share the Magic are focused on children, wellness and the digital divide.
“By joining forces with Tech Data, we are able to help even more children and families in need across other communities,” Larocque said. “Thanks to our sponsors, donors, and incredible network of co-workers and volunteers, we’ve established strong momentum and sustainability to ensure that we can continue to support these deserving charities and the critically important work they do for years to come.”
