J.H. Berry Around Town – 2016
October 26, 2016
Over the past several months, we were thrilled to join together to support organizations around the Birmingham area. We had the opportunity to participate in several community events that supported local non-profits and also gathered the Birmingham corporate community together.
Birmingham Corporate Challenge
In July, our team participated in the inaugural Birmingham Corporate Challenge, presented by St. Vincent’s health system. The challenge offered an opportunity for local businesses to celebrate healthy behaviors in their culture. We won several of division one’s categories, including in the philanthropy category, creative t-shirt category, SCA Home Run Derby, 10K bike stroll, walk category, golf and jump rope category. We won third place in dodgeball, corn hole and the 5K run!
J.H. Berry Dove Hunt
Members of the J.H. Berry team were thrilled to enjoy a beautiful day outside in celebration of dove season kicking off. Family and friend joined the team for a fun-filled day of skeet practice, corn hole, delicious food and a dove shoot at the Alabama River Lodge. Thank you to all who joined us for a successful day of hunting and camaraderie.
Alabama Wildlife Federation’s Wild Game Cook Off
In September, we joined the Alabama Wildlife Federation’s for its fun and delicious Wild Game Cook Off on September 22. Nearly 20 teams from around the Birmingham area gathered at the Birmingham Children’s Zoo for an evening of cooking and wild game cooking. Our cook team prepared a savory meal of turkey nuggets and crawfish chowder. Other dishes in the competition ranged from Alabama Gulf shellfish croquette, rabbit dumplings and smoked quail salad.
Special Equestrians Celebrity Golf Tournament
Members of the J.H. Berry team joined Special Equestrians for its annual Celebrity Golf Tournament on October 6 at Robert Trent Jones at Oxmoor Valley. During the tournament, players had the chance to meet celebrity athletes while on the green while competing in a friendly golf game for a wonderful cause.
