Socket participated in the 2016 Rootin’ Tootin’ Chili Cookoff on Saturday, February 27th at the Holiday Inn Executive Center. This year, we had a group of seven employees represent Socket and cook up some delicious chili!


With over 50 companies participating and 2,000 hungry chili eaters, the event exceeded its $85,000 goal and raised over $100,000 for the Boys and Girls Club of Columbia! A record-breaking year for the Chili Cookoff!

The 2016 Polar Plunge took place Saturday, February 20th at Bass Pro Lake, where there were five employee participants representing Socket.


Our brave group was expecting to take a dive into frigid waters, but unlike previous years it was warm and sunny with a completely thawed lake. To stand out from the other participating groups the Socket employees wore tropical themed costumes, which was a perfect fit for the weather. They were equipped with flower leis, hula skirts, and tropical masks as they took the plunge together to represent our company and support a great cause!
