There’s no better excuse to get out of the office on a Friday than to help out the Austin community.

15 Bazaarvoice employees volunteered last Friday at what was the largest Fall Service Day ever, with over 400 volunteers from the Austin high-tech industry in attendance. The event, hosted by the Entrepreneurs Foundation of Central Texas, resulted in 2,500 hours of service at Zilker Park, amounting to $50,000 in free labor.

As part of the Bazaarvoice Foundation, our commitment to serving the community, the Bazaarvoice team constructed a “Rain Garden” in the park’s botanical gardens. The rock installation will allow rain to flow from the surrounding buildings and water the plants in the garden. The team also planted tons of plants that will thrive in the rocky environment.

“Bazaarvoice always sends such a fun group!” said Shobie Partos of the Entrepreneurs Foundation. “The rain garden looks amazing, and the staff at Zilker Park are thrilled.”
