NuGrowth Community, the philanthropic arm of Strategic Insurance Software and its parent company NuGrowth Solutions, has donated to seven charities and foundations so far this year.
A highlight of NuGrowth Community’s year is often the annual food drive that benefits the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. This past year, NuGrowth Community’s donations to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank resulted in 22,000 meals for the hungry in central Ohio. Other benefiting organizations include St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital, James Cancer Hospital at The Ohio State University, and the Columbus, Ohio Ronald McDonald House. The full list of philanthropic activities follows:
Mid-Ohio Food Drive: Collected food donations
Chili Cook-Off: Collected donations for St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital
NGC March Madness Bracket Challenge: Donations for the Second & 7 Foundation
Susan Komen Race for the Cure: Participated in the 5K walk/run
Cornhole Tournament: Collected funds to be used when preparing meals at the Ronald McDonald house in December
Cornhole Open: Collected donations for James Cancer Research Hospital
ALS Ice Bucket Challenge: Collected donations to fund ALS research
NuGrowth Community meets monthly and all NuGrowth and SIS associates are invited. “We look for charities important to our teammates and work together to come up with creative ways to get the company involved in donating time and money,” said Beth Wenning, Director of Organizational Development. “In addition to benefitting the community, associates who don’t usually get to work together get to know each other better and have fun during our contests and fund drives we use to collect donations.”
Many of the donations and fund drives are organized as competitions giving associates a way to bond over friendly competition while helping the community. Activities organized by NuGrowth Community aimed at building camaraderie among associates include
“Jersey days” when associates can wear their favorite sports team’s jersey to work,
“Food Truck Fridays” when a local food truck is available outside the office for lunch, and
The third annual golf outing which will be held in September.
“NuGrowth Community has grown with our company over the past few years,” said Greg Tillar, CEO of NuGrowth Solutions. “It is really enjoyable to watch the individuals in our companies use their skills and talents to help others around central Ohio.”

In the north central Wisconsin town of Tomahawk is a 3,500-square foot restaurant property that has not only hit the open market, but is slated for auction during Micoley.com’s 200-property September 27th online event. An excellent property to add to a restaurant or commercial portfolio, this bar and grill was built in 1960 and remains in excellent condition, with all kitchen equipment installed and ready to go.
The bar area seats 21, there are another four tables with a total of 17 seats, and there is another large banquet room for private parties with its own bar and eating area. The restaurant is situated at a great location right next to a major thoroughfare and has extra parking. The property is listed at $ 295,000 with a minimum bid of $ 185,000 if no offer is received by the September 27th auction.
Tomahawk is a relaxed and friendly small-town community that skews heavily towards outdoorsy activity (e.g., camping, paintball, golf) during the summer months and towards skiing during the winter. The restaurant’s full address is 433 S Tomahawk Ave Tomahawk, WI 54487 in Lincoln County.
This property has motivated, high-energy sellers entertaining early bids, meaning that although it is scheduled for auction, it may very well sell before that date arrives. Potential buyers would be well advised to begin researching as soon as possible if this property piques their interest. Indeed, the property, along with the full spread of September 27th offerings — which also include residential homes and vacant land — can be viewed by visiting micoley.com.
