Each year, GNY employees vote to select a charity to support by means of in-house fundraisers such as raffles, potluck lunches, trivia contests and "Jeans Fridays," our most successful, lucrative and consistent money-maker. Every Friday, employees have the option of wearing jeans to work, if they contribute $5 to the charity they elected to support that year. GNY matches dollar for dollar all money donated by employees for that year's charity sponsorship.
Along with in-house fundraisers, GNY also raises money by hosting a variety of events, the most popular of which are our producer golf outings.
In July of 2016, GNY also worked with our Quincy, MA office in helping send newly arrived refugee elementary school students to their first American baseball game.
Over the past four years, we've raised money for The Alzheimer's Association (2016), Wounded Warriors (2015), St. Jude's Children's Hospital (2014) and the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation (2013).
The 2017 GNY charity selection is the Make a Wish Foundation.
