Published on May 26, 2017

Last Friday, May 19th, 36 employees from various departments across Intel took to the stage to take on ‘The Kube’, a charity challenge event which was the latest in a series of fundraising activities in support of Intel’s 2017 signature charities; Aoibheann’s Pink Tie and Jigsaw.

The event itself, which was hosted in Confey GAA Club, was modelled on the format of the popular TV series ‘The Kube’ and involved all 36 contestants participating in different heats and tackling a number of different challenges that would test their physical ability, mental ability, intelligence, and responsiveness.

All of the contestants on the night work at the Intel campus in Leixlip and volunteered to be part of the event which involved weeks of promotion along with fundraising for the signature charities through sponsorship and ticket sales.

Confey GAA Club in Leixlip were generous hosts of the event and in front of a packed audience each of the 36 contestants competed individually in a series of heats before winners from each round returned to the stage to take part in Semi-Final and Final rounds. The overall winner on the night was Michael Kane who scooped the top prize having clocked the fastest challenge time in the final round.

The night was an overwhelming success with over €16,000 being raised for Aoibheann’s Pink Tie and Jigsaw. This will be combined with monies raised through other events with the total overall fundraising amount being revealed at the end of the year.
