Meet and Greet Mixers & Mingles Networking Friends for Life

MGM Charity Partners is A Collaboration for the Community!

MGM Friends LLC - Charity Partners was conceived by Woogie Bajgier, Founder of MGM Friends LLC, a networking group created to support business professionals in our community.

MGM Friends LLC– Charity Partners will host a series of fundraisers, supporting various nonprofit organizations each year. This year, with the goal of helping homeless youth and veterans and enhancing children’s learning, three nonprofits have been selected: The Florida Elks Children’s Therapy Services & Youth Camp; Starting Right, Now; and the Veteran’s Association of Real Estate Professionals.

MGM Friends LLC – Charity Partners aims to lessen burdens of those less fortunate in the Tampa Bay area by supporting local nonprofits that help raise these individuals upward.

Florida Elks Children’s Therapy Services and Youth

Florida Elks Children’s Therapy Services and Youth Camp providing programs and education to youth in the state of Florida - where children are given the opportunity to learn and grow beyond their wildest imaginations. Known to Florida Elks as the Harry-Anna Trust Fund, after Harry and Anna Miller who donated land and a building to establish the original Florida Elks Hospital for Crippled Children, the trust serves to collect donations and endowed gifts to support the Florida Elks Children’s Therapy Services and Florida Elks Youth Camp programs.

Starting Right, Now (SRN)

Starting Right, Now (SRN) serves homeless youths by providing stable housing, consistent, one-on one
mentoring, encouraging future and long term perspectives, and teaching enduring skills for self-sufficiency. Students access a wealth of resources, attend after-school classes, and encounter effective role models, all of which equips them to manage new environments and meet novel academic and social demands. SRN enables each student to make profound life changes, promoting stability and growth, passed on to future generations.
