INSPIRED BY CARING, WGI CELEBRATES DOG DAY ON AUGUST 26
WGI employees and friends unleashed their love of canines at WGI’s Dog Day event, in conjunction with Big Dog Ranch Rescue and the loving pups they brought along.
Under a tent in WGI’s new parking lot behind the recently completed and expanded headquarters, associates, friends, and fetching pooches looking for a forever home mingled, bonded, and had a wonderful time.
WGI Creative gathered some great raffle prizes to help with the fundraising efforts, including:
- A $1000 LED home lighting package from MSi
- 1 weekend/2-night stay at the Dunhill Hotel in Charlotte, NC worth $600
- 1 weekend/2-night stay at the Homewood Suites Hilton in Pinehurst, NC worth $500

- A $60 goody basket from Nassau Candy Specialty Confections & Fine Foods

Everyone had a great time, and for a great cause. Goody bags included waterbowls, leashes, thermal cups, and more. See all of the pictures on our Facebook page event album.
WGI has recently donated time and structural design services to The Andrew “Red” Harris Foundation’s artificial reef deployment, had over a dozen WGI staff and their families helped the Palm Beach County Department of Environmental Resources Management remove 375 pounds of trash from the 2,083-acre Cypress Creek Natural Area in Jupiter, sponsored a day-long blood drive WGI to benefit OneBlood – each donation has the potential to save three lives, and participated as a team in the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run.
Inspired by caring, community, citizenship, kindness, and environmental stewardship, WGI’s and its associates will continue finding new inspirations.
