C&A’s wellness committee, AurHealth, organized a fun event on May 8th, our 2nd Annual Poker Walk! C&A employees walked a one-mile course over the lunch hour and earned playing cards along the way.

Dating back to when we were small, most of us remember our parents talking up education. We were told that if we work hard in school and persevere, we could accomplish anything we set out to do.

There are many things in life that bring us joy – family, friends, successful careers, scoring the hottest ticket in town to hear your favorite band.

Giving is a remarkable thing and gosh, if feels good. That’s the feeling at C&A.
