The sun may be shining, but the waters were cold! Dozens of community groups, including Greensboro CPA firm, Davenport, Marvin, Joyce & Co., LLP (DMJ), participated in the 14thannual Polar Plunge for Special Olympics North Carolina on Saturday, February 22. Held at Wet N’ Wild Emerald Pointe, the Guilford County Sheriff’s Department and event organizers announced the event raised more than $25,000 for Special Olympics.
DMJ was again awarded “Most Money Earned,” as top fundraiser, raising more than $13,000. The Greensboro accounting and wealth management firm was also recognized for its decades-long participation that has accounted for more than $100,000 in polar plunge contributions to Special Olympics. Deputy Cindy Martin of the Guilford County Sheriff Department noted, “Special Olympics is very much a part of DMJ. You know it the minute you step into their lobby and throughout their many years of involvement. They have been with us since the very beginning.”
Count DMJ as a firm that goes “all in” for a cause, 2014 marks the firm’s 14 consecutive Polar Plunge. DMJ’s 2014 team of polar plungers included firm accountants Cheryl DeCastro, Eric Godfrey, Mason Barringer, and DMJ Wealth Advisor professionals Russell Kroeger and Caleb Vaughn (as pictured).
