Congratulations to our organizers and all participants!
Our DNEG Montreal and Vancouver studios are still feeling the heat from our Hot Ones Challenge, which happened in our studios last month!
Organised by our incredible Canada EDI Employee Resource Group, the Hot Ones Challenge took place across our Canadian sites as a way to get together, have fun and give back to the community.
Volunteer Champions from each studio began fundraising for a local charity of their choice, with their fellow DNEG employees donating to the cause. The more donations they received, the higher the chance they would be chosen as a final Champion in the Hot Ones Challenge.
There, they faced off against each other to see who could eat the most hot wings (or cauliflower!) – all while being interviewed by our moderator Denis-Jose Francois (DFX Supervisor), who was also the chef behind some of the fiery sauces!
Our team raised $3,995 over the course of the fundraiser, which DNEG then matched — bringing the total donation amount to $7,985!
We’re so proud of all of our fundraising champions. Scroll to learn more about them and their causes!
