You’re Invited: PGI Sponsors 2016 Holiday Charity Bash™


Greg Craddock, Maggie Timberlake and Guy Timberlake celebrate raising money for a great cause.

We love supporting our service members and veterans, we enjoy a good party—and we’re combining the two by supporting The American Small Business Coalition’s (ASBC) 2016 Holiday Charity Bash™.

The December 7 event brings together government contractors and subcontractors, government professionals, those who support our service members, our wounded warriors, veterans and more for a fun night.

And it’s not your average networking event.

This year is going to be bigger and better than ever! The host facility is bringing in its chef from New York. Its service team will be pouring delicious drinks, including some way-above-the-top-shelf whiskies from Kentucky, Ireland and Japan—whiskies that mysteriously showed up on ASBC’s front porch the other day.

They’re bringing back their mystery gift boxes, too. Each one contains a present with a minimum value of $25, and sometimes significantly more. The silent auction and 50/50 raffle feature some amazing prizes—think vacation packages, bourbon baskets and more!

And that’s not even the best part. Proceeds from the Bash support the American Freedom Foundation (AFF), a charity co-founded by the 12th Sergeant Major of the U.S. Army (ret.) Jack Tilley.

AFF offers veterans and their families resources to help with the transition back to the civilian workforce. It does so through partnerships with military-focused organizations and educational scholarships for military dependents through Kaplan University, just to name two. This year, we’re partnering with AFF to support Warriors To The Workforce and Homes for Our Troops.

Patriot Group International sponsored the event in 2012 and 2013 and is excited to support the cause again this year. Our goal is to raise at least $7,500 for AFF. We hope you join us!

The American Small Business Coalition

The American Small Business Coalition was founded in 2004 to support stakeholders of U.S. government contracting. Since then, the organization has become a trusted resource for U.S. government agencies and their contractors through the development of networks, relationships and knowledge—enabling them to effectively do business with each other in consideration of their individual objectives.
