VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/23/14 -- For the second consecutive year, Eminence Organic Skin Care (www.eminenceorganics.com) has raised an incredible donation for BC Children's Hospital Foundation. Employees of Eminence will join together to present the company's fundraising efforts live during the Miracle Weekend Telethon on May 31st and June 1st, 2014.
"My first-hand experience of a childhood disease is what drives my passion to help kids going through similar health challenges. We are proud to contribute to children's hospitals in different areas of the world to make a difference in children's lives," says Boldijarre Koronczay, President of Eminence Organic Skin Care. "We are very excited to attend and support the upcoming Annual Miracle Weekend Telethon. I am proud that Eminence employees have played an integral part in raising the donation and will be there to physically present $10,437.90 to the BC Children's Hospital Foundation."
As part of their dedication to improving sick children's lives, Eminence will also be formalizing a new initiative titled "Eminence Kids" to be launched later this year. To begin, Boldijarre and his brother Attila Koronczay, General Manager of Eminence, have donated two mobile IV chemotherapy machines to the Children's Hospital in Budapest, Hungary. The Bethesda Children's Hospital in Budapest, Hungary, is the same hospital where Boldijarre received treatment for his childhood Leukemia. The new IV machines enable young children to continue to move around while they enjoy their day as much as possible. Boldijarre remains in close contact with the hospital and does as much as he can to support the hospital that helped save his life.
Eminence contributes to many different charitable organizations every year and is a proud supporter of the BC Children's Hospital Foundation. Helping children in need is an important cause that is near and dear to the hearts of both the staff and owners of Eminence.
The BC Children's Hospital Miracle Weekend will air on Global TV, May 31st and June 1st, 2014.

There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
