Congratulations to our winners of the day:

2nd Place Net – A Team Services

A word from the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation-GA Chapter:

“PBTF-GA is the first line of support for hundreds of children battling brain tumors and their families in Georgia, and, in some cases, eight other states. Our programs include social, emotional, educational, and financial assistance. As you can imagine, these are services much needed and appreciated by families who are going through a very difficult journey. Our Chapter is also proud to be a part of the largest nonprofit funder of pediatric brain tumor research.

At the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation-GA Chapter, we consider it an honor to be a client of The Barter Company, and we are extremely grateful to receive the proceeds from this important event. On behalf of all of us – and the many children and families we serve – thank YOU for your part in making the event a success!”

Happy National Cat Day Roscoe & Bobo!

roscoeboboToday is National Cat Day and we’d like to give a shout out to our lovable office cats, Roscoe & Bobo! If you’ve ever been to our office, then chances are you’ve been greeted by one of our friendly office cats. Since joining our team in 2008 after being rescued from the Cherokee County Animal Shelter, they’ve helped to make our office a fun place to work. Not only do they greet everyone who comes through the front door, they help boost the moral and create a happy environment to work in. Throughout the day, they make their rounds to visit each employee. They enjoy sun bathing in the conference room and chasing each other down the halls. They are so loved that staff members come check on them over the weekend to say a quick hello and make sure they have enough to eat! So in honor of National Cat Day, we want to celebrate our wonderful office cats and invite you to come meet them if you haven’t already! Here are some photos of a day in the life of Roscoe & Bobo:
