Dancing With The Carolina Stars

AMG President and CEO Paul K. Mengert, who has a long-standing commitment to philanthropy, took his dedication to helping other to a new level in 2018—into the skies…through dance!

Paul competed in the 10th annual “Dancing With The Carolina Stars” competition to benefit Operation Smile on Saturday, Feb. 10. Paul and his team were awarded “Best Production” for their performance titled “Come Fly With Me”.

Thanks to the many contributions donated to Operation Smile, more than $275,000 was raised which allows over 1,100 children to undergo cleft lip and palate repair surgeries.

“An important part of the AMG culture is to help people, which is reflected in our efforts to help our community association clients in a variety of situations,” said Mengert. “We are proud to continue this tradition with Operation Smile and I would like to thank the large team of people who helped with the production and donated to the cause.”
