WILDFLOWER! Art Guitar Program & Auction
During the WILDLFLOWER! Music & Arts Festival, sponsors, local artists, celebrities, and sports figures transform guitars, acoustic or electric, through painting, tiling, or other imaginative methods. Once transformed, the guitars are displayed and sold in a silent auction during the festival. Proceeds benefit the NETWORK of Community Ministries Inc. and the fine art programs in the secondary level of the Richardson Independent School District.
Flower Power describes the guitar ARGO entered in this year’s auction. Inspired by the stunning view out the windows of ARGO’s offices, the artist created a stylized pattern of wildflowers on the front side of the guitar and ARGO’s corporate office building on the back. ARGO’s entry, touted as one of the most spectacular guitars in the WILDFLOWER! Art Guitar Program’s 12-year history, brought the highest bid ever recorded.
Medical City Pediatric Oncology
Every year since 2004, ARGO co-sponsors the December holiday party for the Medical City Pediatric Oncology department. Along with financial support, our employees have the option to bring a little brightness to patients and their families by working booths, serving food, painting faces, and taking photographs. In addition to the December celebration, our company financially supports a spring family retreat for these same patients and families.
Richardson Corporate Challenge
We participate in the annual Corporate Challenge hosted by the City of Richardson. For approximately three months, employees from area companies, schools, and non-profits have the option to compete for trophies in a wide range of Olympic-style events, including golf, bass fishing, darts, bowling, and football. Not only does ARGO routinely win top medals in this friendly competition; we raise thousands of dollars that directly benefit the Texas Special Olympics.
