Just another Friday at ABG

Who’s happy it’s Friday? I know I am! If you’ve been keeping up with ABG Capital this week, you probably saw that we had a ton going on. Before I get into that though, I’d like to mention a little something about our Giving Back initiatives. Throughout the year we are always looking for ways that we can give back to our community. There are a few things we do every year and there are always new things we’re trying out as well. So far this year we’ve already sold roses and carnations for Valentine’s Day, potted flowers for Mother’s Day, and raffle tickets for a Cinco de Mayo basket as a way to raise funds for Make-A-Wish. Next week we are heading to the National Cemeteries of the Alleghenies to clean headstones in order to help them prepare for their Memorial Day ceremonies.

I want to look a little further to an event where YOU can get involved in too. July 19-21 the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank will be hosting their annual Blues Festival at Hartwood Acres. There will be volunteers from our entire organization who attend this event as a way to donate their time to a cause. If you are interested in joining over 700 other volunteers for this great event, you can visit www.pghblues.com starting on Monday, May 13th to sigh up.

While we’re talking about our ABG Capital Giving Back initiatives, do you remember earlier this week when we wrote about Eric Butler? He’s a VoIP Innovations employee who is growing his beard for a cause! The Pittsburgh Penguins are in the Stanley Cup playoffs and are currently holding a Beard-a-Thon challenge that raises money for the Mario Lemieux Foundation. Please check out the blog post we wrote about him that covers all of the information and rules of the Beard-a-Thon.

The last piece I want to mention is that our ABG Capital Executive Team is at the Gazelles in Orlando this week. They are attending a two-day leadership summit that features a number of fantastic speakers. I’ve been getting pictures from their trip and uploading them to our Facebook page! Don’t forget to check them out!

I hope everyone had a great week and has a great weekend 🙂
