Virginia Natural Gas Takes the Plunge for Special Olympics
While we’re keeping our customers nice and warm this winter, many Virginia Natural Gas employees were feeling the chill! On Feb. 3, for the 19th year in a row, Team VNG came out strong to support the Special Olympics during the annual Polar Plunge event in Virginia Beach.
On a balmy 35-degree day, more than 40 Virginia Natural Gas employees, family and friends took the plunge into the frigid Atlantic Ocean donning their winter “swimwear” and fluorescent green beanies. Through company contributions and fundraising efforts the team raised more than $40,000 - the most money raised in our company history for this event. This placed Virginia Natural Gas as the No. 1 individual company contributor toward the $1.1 million raised locally for this great cause.
