As one of five local companies in the 2019 Kiss a Pig Challenge, FWA spent the summer raising money for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford and Cecil Counties through the Clubs’ annual Kiss a Pig Fundraiser.
During the two months of fundraising, FWA employees and their families “pigged out” at a pancake breakfast at Looney’s Pub, later working off those calories by hitting the Ma & Pa Trail during the Catch a Pig 5K run/walk. We had great conversations over drinks (including the signature Kiss a Pig Crush) with clients and friends during a charity happy hour, and enjoyed a competitive spirit throughout the office as employees voted to determine who would be the official FWA pig kisser.
The fundraising events culminated with FWA President, Tory Pierce, and Senior Vice President, John V. Mettee, IV, puckering up on stage in front of hundreds at the Maryland State BBQ Bash, held annually in downtown Bel Air. FWA took second place in the corporate fundraising challenge, contributing to the overall $44,000 that was raised for the Clubs.
The generosity from our clients, business partners, families, and friends in support of our youth was overwhelming in helping us achieve our fundraising goal. We sincerely thank those who worked so hard to make a difference in Harford and Cecil counties, one child at a time.
