CommunityPBGW continually strives to give back to the community. As a firm, we participate in various charitable events and fundraising activities throughout the year. Please take a minute to view our current and upcoming community events, as well as the causes we have supported in the past.
For the past 6 years I’ve been involved in “No Shave November,” or formally “Movember.” It is an effort to raise awareness and funding for men’s health programs. Movember began in 2003, and since inception has raised $559 million in donations and has funded 832 men’s health projects thanks to the 4 million + “Mo Bros and Mo Sistas.” Last year, Movember raised $22.9 million in the USA alone. Here is a little history of the Movember Campaign and Movember 101.
With the help of several other PBGW employees, I hope to raise $1,000 for the Movember Foundation. Please offer your support to Team PBGW as we grow our staches and raise funds for this important cause!
***Update 11/10/14: PBGW has already surpassed our $1,000 goal, having raised over $1200! Thank you to all who have contributed and we look forward to continuing our fundraising efforts for the remainder of the month.
I recently reached out to the Breathing Room Foundation, an organization that helps support local families dealing with cancer, to see how PBGW can lend our firm’s support this holiday season. We have chosen to provide the Thanksgiving meal for a family whose husband/father is battling liver cancer. During the month of November, we will be collecting all of the items needed to feed the family of seven. We hope our contribution will help ease the burden of the holiday and allow the family to simply enjoy each other’s company on Thanksgiving day.
