Global agency GolinHarris wrapped up “Al’s Day” this week with 150 people from their Chicago headquarters joining Friends of the Parks to do a bit of community service (above). The second annual event marks founder Al Golin’s 81st birthday. Over the past two weeks, employees from Golin’s Dallas, Dubai, Frankfurt, Los Angeles and Singapore offices have partnered with local non-profits to give back a little of their time.

Golin founded the firm–now a subsidiary of the Interpublic Group (NYSE: IPG)–54 years ago. Three years in, he made a cold call to Ray Kroc to land the McDonald’s account, one the firm still holds today.
