The importance of giving back permeates Sandwire’s corporate culture. As CEO of the Sandwire Group, Adam Schwam sets the example and motivates the team. Karen Perry, company COO and Sr. VP, provides similar leadership as a contributor to the greater good. Not only is this good for the community, but it is also good for business. Many of Sandwire’s clients have hired the company due to its visibility as a generous supporter of important causes.

Adam is a founding member of The Long Island Elite, a young business professionals’ networking organization that encourages relationship-building through giving back to and raising funds for regional charities. Sandwire has been a consistent event sponsor and Adam, himself, has been a ready volunteer for nearly 20 years since the organization’s inception. Karen is a past event chair of a thousand person wine tasting event and founding member of a national charity that supports individuals with vision and hearing loss.

In 2004, Adam participated in the Long Island Fight for Charity, boxing three rounds to raise money for local charities. In 2019, he made an encore performance before 2,000+ spectators, his contender is his close friend and client, Bert Lurch of E Central Medical Management, Inc. Adam wrote, produced and starred in a movie short entitled “What are a Few Punches Worth,” based on the Rocky films, featuring a parody of the rivalry between Rocky and Apollo Creed. All told, Adam and Bert raised more than $65,000 that went directly to local charities.

For 18 years, Karen has been at the helm of Event Journal, a company dedicated to helping nonprofits raise more from major fundraisers like galas and golf outings. Inventor of the first digital ad journal featuring online sponsor ads, event content and a shopping cart for ticket purchases and donations, this innovative company has contributed to hundreds of causes. Event Journal counts national, regional and local nonprofits and charities among its loyal following.

The Sandwire Group team also contributes to and participates in community and business organizations, charity boards and committees. Belief in community, participation and giving back has long been key to Sandwire’s culture and will continue to be for years to come.
