Not only was this their 19th sponsorship of a BBBSCI event, they also went above and beyond by bringing four teams, all of which personally raised money to bowl. Some of those teams held internal fundraising campaigns to raise extra dollars and one employee used their creative talents to decorate a bowling pin, which was auctioned off at the event.
Amanda Greiner, AVP, Office Administration and Meeting Planner at Sammons Financial Group, serves on the BBBSCI Board of Directors and is a strong advocate for BBBSCI.
“Awarded a 2016 Top Workplace, Sammons Financial Group, Inc. is proud of our long history of support with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa (BBBSCI). We actively seek out organizations that help children develop and thrive. Through financial support and our engaged employee volunteer force, we’ve built a relationship of giving and are proud to play a role in supporting at-risk youth in our community,” said Amanda.
In addition to their financial support, five Sammons Financial Group employees volunteer their time as Bigs in BBBSCI’s mentoring programs
