Global Edge supports the Pulmonary Hypertension Association with an afternoon full of crawfish and fun!
Giving back is one of the key values practiced and encouraged by The Global Edge. Making a real difference in the places where our firm operates is an important goal of ours. We are constantly seeking opportunities to support organizations, both locally and globally, that need a helping hand.
That was one of the many reasons behind sponsoring the 8th Annual BB&T Woodlands CrawPHish Festival held on March 24th, which is an initiative promoted by the Pulmonary Hypertension Association , Stibbs & Co., P.C., and The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce.
The Festival was an excellent occasion to enjoy an afternoon full of food, fun, live music and kids’ activities, featured by hundreds of pounds of exquisite Louisiana crawfish, boiled and seasoned to perfection. Over the past eight years, The Woodlands Crawphish Festival has become one of Montgomery County’s most popular family festivals. Held at Town Green Park, the event provided an enjoyable atmosphere for each family member.
All the proceeds from the Festival were donated to the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA), a nationwide non-profit organization. The PHA’s mission is “to extend and improve the lives of those affected by PH”. The association, created in 1991, works in several fields to raise awareness, increase knowledge and find a cure.
This is the eighth year in a row where we have supported PHA through sponsorship at the Festival. The Pulmonary Hypertension disease is a foundation that is near and dear to our CEO, Kathy Eberwein, as she lost her father due to this disease in 2011. Besides the Festival, the firm has also sponsored events in partnership with Kendra Scott, a world-renowned jeweler and philanthropist, to raise awareness and improve the overall public’s education regarding the disease.
Nevertheless, our company’s social responsibility has expanded beyond this issue, because giving back is simply an integral part of The Global Edge. We are definitely committed to contributing our part to improve the lives of those around us and to impact our community through our continued philanthropic efforts.
