Cahaba River Society Honors Amerex
February 13, 2012
McWane has been supporting the communities where our team members live and work for generations and over the years we have been involved in many great causes. One of those causes was the 2011 Cahaba River Fry-Down which is an annual fundraiser for the Cahaba River Society (CRS). In fact it is their biggest fundraiser of the year and Amerex was proud to be the title sponsor for this event.
People from all over the greater Birmingham area joined together at Trussville Springs beside the river for a fun day of music, education about how to protect the river and conserve water and lots of delicious food. Six teams competed for the Fry-Down trophies and the competition was judged by local mayors, local chefs, a nutritionist, a food blogger and a local pastor.
The competition was fierce, but Team Amerex took home the winning trophy for Best Overall and Best Flavor. This is becoming an annual goal for Team Amerex. In 2010 they were awarded the Best Overall trophy. In fact, they are so committed that the Team gets together for a trial run the week of the competition.
We are also proud to report that CRS presented Amerex with the 2011 Corporate Friend of the Year Award at their Annual Membership Meeting which was held on February 2, 2012. When presenting the award to Amerex President Bill Beyer, Monica Carmichael, CRS Director of Development said, "We appreciate the strong support from Amerex for the Fry-Down last year. We couldn't have done it without them!"
At McWane, we strive to take every possible measure to preserve our planet through caring corporate responsibility. Similarly, it is the goal of the Cahaba River Society to restore and protect the Cahaba River watershed and its rich diversity of life.
