Praecipio Consulting Pledges 1% to Flatwater Foundation

Atlassian Platinum Solution Partner supports non-profit offering services to those diagnosed with cancer and their families

For Immediate Release

As members of the Pledge 1% movement, Austin-headquartered Atlassian Platinum Solution Partner, Praecipio Consulting, donates employee time, company profit, and equity to a variety of charitable causes. Their most recent contribution is helping those diagnosed with cancer and their families gain access to therapy through the Flatwater Foundation. To this end, Praecipio Consulting has committed to raising $12,000 for the Flatwater Foundation's Dam That Cancer fundraiser- standup paddle boarding 21 miles across Austin's Ladybird Lake.

In order to boost awareness and contributions for the Flatwater Foundation, Praecipio Consulting is hosting a fundraising event on May 20th (5- 9 PM) at East Austin's in.gredients. Joined by co-sponsors, Whitestone Brewery and in.gredients, Praecipio Consulting's Dam That Cancer Fundraiser Party will feature activities for the whole family. Proceeds from in.gredients' sales, purchases of Whitestone Brewery's ales, and raffle ticket sales (of which prizes include specialty handmade goods and even autographed items from Dallas Mavericks MVP, Dirk Nowitzki) contribute to reaching the $12,000 goal. 

"As business owners and members of the Austin community, which is known for its support of worthy causes, we wanted to throw an event that would both raise money for the Flatwater Foundation as well as educate the community on the important work the foundation is doing," says Praecipio Consulting Partner and Dam That Cancer standup paddle boarder, Christian Lane. "While the event will certainly be a great party- with beer, games, and live music- we also want to keep a focus on the mission of the Flatwater Foundation. Event attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the amazing work the Flatwater Foundation is doing, as well as write letters of encouragement to cancer patients and their families."

The team of 5 Praecipio Consulting employees, joined by Atlassian's Community Team Lead, Ashley Elder, are currently in training to complete their 21-mile athletic feat, which happens on June 12th. In addition to the Dam That Cancer Fundraising Party at in.gredients, Praecipio Consulting will also be hosting a charity Spikeball Tournament to raise additional funds for the cause, generating interest with spikeball games and charity tournament registration available at their May 20th fundraising event.
