NGWA staff members will attend a fundraiser for the Groundwater Foundation’s Awesome Aquifer Kit at the office of the Worthington Industries/Amtrol inside sales team on November 30.
Amtrol is an NGWA manufacturer member and its Worthington Industries corporate office in Worthington, Ohio, is located near the NGWA headquarters in Westerville, Ohio.
The Worthington Industries/Amtrol inside sales team is hosting a Chili Cookoff and Pie in the Face fundraiser with all the proceeds being donated to the Groundwater Foundation’s Awesome Aquifer Kit program.
The Awesome Aquifer program provides learning materials that enable users to build an aquifer model. Instructions and activity supplies are included that walk users through learning all about groundwater. The Awesome Aquifer Kits are ideal for use in classrooms, at community events, at festivals or fairs, or any other educational setting.
In partnering with NGWA, Worthington Industries/Amtrol is working to sponsor as many classrooms throughout Ohio as possible. The Groundwater Foundation’s Sponsor a Classroom program has a goal of connecting sponsors and educators throughout the country.
Funds will be raised Wednesday through the Chili Cookoff where the winning recipe will be shared to allow others to enjoy. The Pie in the Face contest ties into the Ohio State University-University of Michigan football rivalry—people can donate to have pies thrown at Michigan and OSU fans.
Attending on behalf of NGWA are CEO Terry S. Morse, CAE, CIC, Multimedia Designer Haleigh Continio, and Marketing Specialist Maggie Herrmann.
