Wiley|Wilson Officers and Managers Get “Dunked” for a Good Cause
Employee owners at Wiley|Wilson’s Lynchburg office enjoyed an end-of-summer picnic on Saturday, August 17, courtesy of the company’s Activities Committee which regularly organizes events for the company’s 160-plus employee owners. This year, the event raised money for a good cause: the ESOP PAC. The company hosted a Splash Burst, similar to a dunking booth. Managers from different departments “volunteered” to be targets for the game. Attendees paid $3 individually, and in some case more, for three shots at breaking a water balloon above the target’s head. The event was a rousing success and raised $216, all of which was donated to the ESOP PAC. Based on the success of this activity, the Activities Committee and the ESOP Communications Committee anticipate hosting other fundraising efforts throughout the course of the year.
