Another Year, Another Lunchtime Soak for Broujos

Is there a better way to spend your lunch than watching your Managing Director get soaked for a good cause? Definitely not!  

Luckily for our office, we got to witness this last Thursday, August 2nd for the second year in a row as our Managing Director and Principal, Gregg Broujos, participated in the ALS Association of Western Pennsylvania Chapter’s CEO Soak. Broujos, along with 20 other CEOs, Presidents and other upper-level managers, stood in the fountains at PPG for one minute.  

“The ALS chapter in Pittsburgh does a fantastic job with this important fundraiser,” Broujos exclaimed. “It was a beautiful day and a huge crowd, which made it a brilliant event.”   

While many of the participants volunteered last year for the inaugural event, there were also some new bodies that took the plunge. 

“The return of several participants and the new volunteers just goes to show what big and giving hearts the people of Pittsburgh have and are willing to share,” notes Lisa Mikolay, Operations Manager for Colliers International | Pittsburgh. “However, the best part of my lunch break was watching Gregg get drenched in extremely cold water!”

Broujos raised over $1,500 towards direct care for individuals and families, national public policy efforts and research focused on finding treatments for ALS.   

“As always, thank you to the many generous people who donated funds to help in the fight against ALS,” Broujos said.  

To date, the event has raised over $49,000 towards their $60,000 goal. Donations will be accepted through August 15th. If you are interested in donating, please click here.
