Bringing together local user experience (UX) leaders, Bold Insight hosted a charity event in Oak Brook on June 19. Unique to other casino-themed events, attendees played with Bold Insight’s money to benefit charities they chose. Winners were the top chip holders at the end of the evening. “Bringing UX leaders together to support worthwhile charities was a different forum. Throw in great food with gambling and we saw a new level of energy to these conversations,” said Gavin Lew, Managing Director of Bold Insight. Donations ranging from $100 to $300 were given to the following charities chosen by the winners: West Suburban Humane Society, Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, RefugeeOne, Wounded Warrior Project, Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, National Pediatric Cancer Foundation, Lupus Foundation of America, Breast Cancer Research Foundation, World Wildlife Fund, and Chicago Children’s Charities. Korey Johnson, Managing Director of Bold Insight, added, “We hope to do this again soon and donate even more to make a profound impact on our community. I very much enjoy these events because they remind me that although UX and human factors research have proliferated over the past decade, our professional community is extremely tight-knit. When you get us all together, new bonds are quickly formed, and great ideas emerge.” To be notified of the next event, sign up for our eNewsletter at boldinsight.com.
