The five West employees in Eagan, Minn. who competed in a company talent show last week were all musically-gifted. But Steven Wold earned the top prize – $5,000 for charity – for a song he wrote and performed titled “Skeleton Hill.” You can see his performance here:
The ”Thomson Reuters Employees Got Talent” contest was part of the annual employee giving campaign at West which contributes to nonprofit organizations across the globe. Wold, a senior quality assurance specialist at West, donated his prize money to Neurofibromatosis Inc. Minnesota.
Second place of $3,000 went to Roger Holmes for the charity Wishes & More. Roger performed a song he wrote, titled “Never Too Late for Love.” And, third place in the contest went to Ryan Luse, who donated $1,000 to the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance for his original song “Out West.”
