NC- DMJ & Co., PLLC (DMJ)
, a Top 300 North Carolina accounting and consulting firm really knows
how to make a splash! On Saturday, February 24 DMJ participated in the Triad
Chill for Special Olympics. The firm took the first leap into the 50 degree
waters of Wet n’ Wild Emerald Pointe and was followed by nearly 500 community
and individual polar plunge teams. DMJ’s fundraising
efforts resulted in $14,000 for Special Olympics and the firm was awarded “Most
Money Earned” by a group. With outside temperatures at 75 degrees, the Triad Chill
was more balmy than chilly, but the event did raise more than $45,000 for the
nearly 40,000 athletes of Special Olympics. Caren
Rodriguez, Director of Marketing, and Mike Gillis, Managing Partner, presented
Special Olympics with a symbolic check commemorating DMJ’s milestone
fundraising total of more than $150,000 since the inaugural Polar Plunge in
team of polar plungers included Drew Haddock, CPA, Jason
King, CPA, and Ginger Quick, CPA of the DMJ’s Sanford office, and David Mize, CPA, Quinton Simones, and Brian Chandler of the
Greensboro Office. George Wigglesworth also joined the team.
The spirit of
corporate social responsibility is strong at DMJ who raised the money with
causal days for a cause and the support of generous community friends. With a
few exceptions, they have been the single longest supporter of the Triad Polar
Plunge since it was created in 2000. DMJ & Co.,
PLLC and DMJ Wealth Advisors, LLC has plunged for 18th consecutive
years, consistently leading the way in fundraising contributions.
Marketing, Caren Rodriguez, notes, “Being part of this event is both pride and
passion for DMJ. More than 150 individuals, clients, and community members have
generously donated to Team DMJ’s fundraising efforts, many of whom graciously
share personal stories of how Special Olympics has made a personal impact to
their lives. Their support, and the enthusiasm of our firm for the cause, is a
credit to our ongoing commitment to Special Olympics."
