We are so excited to announce that Symmetry Financial Group was recognized as the 2020 recipient of the Dale Jr. Indomitable Spirit Award presented by Make-A-Wish Central and Western North Carolina.
On Friday, February 21, Make-A-Wish Central and Western North Carolina recognized Symmetry with this honor at their annual Wish Ball. The chapter's largest event of the year, more than 600 guests traveled from across the region to celebrate the power of a wish.
“We would not be able to give back on the level that we do if it wasn’t for Symmetry Financial Group founders Casey and Sarah Watkins, Brandon and Meredith Ellison, and Brian and Geri Pope, who set the stage early on and prioritized the core value of giving back and doing good in the world,” says Whit Zeh, Director of Community Relations and Well-Being at Symmetry Financial Group. “It feels so good to be part of a company that truly lives by the core values they set. We have worked over the last three years, not only to raise money, but also share the mission of Make-A-Wish and bring awareness to the cause.”
“We are proud that we have been able to create a culture of giving through events like the Symmetry Challenge,” adds Zeh. “We love to see people within our company come from across the country to support our local Make-A-Wish chapter, and then spread the impact by going home and supporting their local chapters through hosting their own fundraising events and making personal donations. We are grateful for our partnership and look forward to many more wonderful years supporting and collaborating with Make-A-Wish.”
The Dale Jr. Indomitable Spirit Award recognizes a corporation or individual that has made a significant impact on the work of Make-A-Wish.
"We are so grateful for the support of Symmetry Financial Group, and everything they have done to make wishes possible," said Michelle Scannella, Marketing and Communications Manager at Make-A-Wish Central and Western North Carolina. "At this year's Wish Ball, we presented them with the 2020 Dale Earnhardt Jr. Indomitable Spirit Award, which was created to honor one partner that embodies Make-A-Wish's desire to Share the Power of a Wish, through persistence, compassion, integrity and dedication, making a lasting impression on the community. It is reserved for the most transformational partners, and Symmetry exemplifies that in every sense of the word."
