Hearts. Everyone has one. They symbolize love and affection. Its where charity and friendship co-exist. But it wasn’t until 2020 when TSG lost one of its brightest stars, that charity and friendship came together more profoundly. The sudden loss of our colleague Commercial Senior Account Manager Ryan Jones to an undetected heart condition brought greater meaning to the AHA Heart Walk. Since 2012, TSG has raised over $92,000 for the American Heart Association through various philanthropic activities, including the annual Milwaukee Heart Walk. Walking for a second year in Ryan’s memory, our staff raised over $8,000 this year for the event. Honored as “Top Walkers” by the AHA on September 24, 2022, were HNI Employee Benefits Producer Joe Somogyi ($900), Director of Marketing Cheryl Michalek ($2,501) and Executive Director Mary Starr ($3,050). Cheryl especially acknowledged TSG vendors and customers who worked with Ryan and who generously donated in his memory. Thank you to everyone who walked, recruited, raised funds, and participated in our Tasty Tuesday, Beer:30 and The Starr Group Silent Auction. You guys are all AMAZING!
