Photo Gallery: Comfort Food Cook-off

Last Friday, our Corporate Headquarters held a huge Comfort Food Cook-off — all to benefit United Way! Departments competed for the title of “Comfort Food Champion” with their best soups and chili. We also had a dessert raffle and baked goods for sale, and many of our executive management team helped to greet and serve meals to our employees. Altogether, we raised $2,800 over the lunch hour! Here are a few favorite pictures from the day.

On August 25, Leggett & Platt hosted the 7th annual Golf Tournament to benefit the Carthage Area United Way. A little bit of rain didn’t even dampen our spirits – a total of 44 teams competed throughout the day in the golf scramble, poker tournament, and hole-in-one and putting contests. Altogether we raised approximately $18,000! We couldn’t have made the day successful without the players, corporate sponsors, and our 50 volunteers. Here are some of our favorite photos from the day!

Leggett & Platt Executives Take a Pie in the Face for a Good Cause

Leggett & Platt has partnered with United Way for several years — but we don’t just raise funds for a good cause, we have fun while we do it! In 2014 we hosted a community-wide fall festival, held bake sales and raffles, even a dodgeball tournament. However, the highlight this year was when our leadership decided to get in on it; employees participated in an auction for the chance to throw a pie in the face of their favorite executive.
