Flipping Cakes for a Good Cause

Claudia EsguerraEvents

Charles Rossi, Executive VP of Azimuth Corporation, wears many hats: business strategy specialist, government industry guru, pricing pro, contracts connoisseur—and pancake chef extraordinaire.

Rossi showed off his pancake prowess at the pancake breakfast for the That Day in May (TDIM) fundraising event in the Oakwood community, providing hands-on support to pair with Azimuth’s annual sponsorship of the event.

The pancake breakfast was one of several TDIM events, providing avenues of fun—and fundraising—for every attendee. Kids and adults alike flocked to the community parade, dog show, auto show—and pancake breakfast, obviously catching wind of Rossi’s famous flapjacks. Games, a bouncy house, and a Fun Run kept the kids entertained, while adults were privy to 5k and 10k runs, a silent auction, and a golf outing paired with a cocktail party.

The Oakwood Rotary Club hosted the event, and all proceeds went to the Oakwood Rotary Foundation, which has provided over $750,000 to local nonprofits and charitable organizations that serve the needy in the Miami Valley. Rossi has been a Rotary Club member since 2011 and welcomes the opportunity to volunteer—and provide financial support through the company he helped found.

“It’s a fun event that really brings the community together in support of a worthy cause,” said Rossi. “We’re all about giving back at Azimuth, and this is an ideal venue for doing so.”

The TDIM event is just one of several ways Azimuth supports local communities. Every holiday season, Azimuth looks for ways to give back. For the last two years, Azimuth and its employees worked with Choices, Inc. Foster Care to provide gifts for teenagers transitioning out of foster care, ensuring they had what they needed for a new chapter in their lives. In 2022, Azimuth supported two teens, one of which had a baby, and contributed prizes for the holiday party for all the foster teens.

Azimuth will continue this focus on our local communities, extending the “Azimuth family” beyond our offices and hallways. So, rest assured, Rossi will be at future That Day in May Events, back at the griddle, spatula in hand. He would not think of depriving the Oakwood community of those fluffy, tantalizing, syrup-drenched cakes. Until next year!
