From May to October employee fundraisers include a silent auction, monthly lunches, penny wars, karaoke, blind volleyball, a chili cook off, cake walks and a bean bag tournament.

“Thank you to everyone at NGL for their support with the 2017 United Way Campaign. It would not have been such a success without each person who donated, volunteered and participated in activities,” said Jessica Grann, NGL Assistant Vice President and Director of Corporate Communications and 2017 NGL United Way Campaign Coordinator. “Everyone is truly helping to change lives and give hope to people in our community.”

“Over the years I’ve gone from participating in United Way events sponsored by NGL to helping co-chair this year’s campaign. I’m continually amazed at the creativity and dedication of NGL’s employees during those events,” said Nick Woltring, NGL Director of Customer Service and 2017 NGL United Way Campaign Co-Chair. “Every year we develop new events and new ways to have fun while giving back to the community. My coworkers volunteer their time, creativity and money to help make Dane County a better place and I’m proud to work beside them.”
