About MGM Charity Partners

We are a group of business professionals working with integrity, knowledge and skills, who network together to help each other grow their businesses through trusted relationships.
MGM Friend’s Charity Partners was created by Founder, Woogie Bajgier and a small group of business professionals through MGM Friends Relationship Networking Group. The group decided to take their trusted relationships and love for helping people in need into the Tampa Bay where they have spent the last 3 years spreading awareness and funds for local charities. With the help of generous businesses, individuals and other non-profits, we are able to give back to our community and have fun along the way.
