2nd Annual Stirling Olympics Raises Over $30,000!

This past Friday, employees and agents from all offices gathered for the 2nd Annual Stirling Properties Olympics, an event hosted by the Stirling Stewardship Committee to raise money for charitable causes.  The event was a HUGE SUCCESS, raising over $33,000! Employees and agents divided into 10 teams with each team choosing their team name, colors, flag, and song. Charities were voted on prior to the event, with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and The Disposable Heroes Project chosen as recipients of this year’s donations. Teams raised over $33,000 through personal donations and attaining sponsors. Teams were able to earn points the week leading up to the Olympics by correctly answering Stirling Trivia questions. On the day of the Olympics, teams competed in 10 events – Swim Tube/Goggles Relay, Egg Relay, Blind Basketball, Rubber Chicken Toss, Bean Bag Toss, Puzzle Relay, Obstacle Texting Race, Bowling, Hula Hoop Contest, and Tricycle and Bouncy Ball Relay. Scores were tallied at the end of the day and medals were given for each event and the top overall teams. Events were judged by Jamey Flegal (CBL & Associates Properties), Tara Hernandez (JCH Development), Will Boudreaux (Netchex), Jeanne Wallace (Wright & Percy), Tommy Buckel (Duplantis Design Group), and Steven Serio (Fishman Haygood Phelps Walmsley Willis & Swanson, LLP). The Gold Medal overall went to Mr. T and the McFlys…congratulations to Townsend Underhill, Sharon Amacker, Jessica Zeringue, Ellen McCain, Amanda Pfeil, Kelly Wellmeyer, Robert Dischler, Ryan Murphy, Dinah Rawls, and John Woodard. Congratulations also to Paul Mastio, Kristy Beach, Tracy Gandy, Lindsey Palmer, Cyndie Quave, Melissa Serpas, Dick Cyr, Jill Meeks, and Donna Allsup of Mastio’s Minions who earned the Silver Medal.  Chris Abadie, Melinda Brazzel, Glinda Erler, Hazel Fischer, Brittany Orr, Valerie Sterkx, Joe Gardner, Justin Landry, Ashley Hosey, and John Hayes of Brewskies and a Six Pack took home the Bronze Medal. At the end of the day, in an effort to raise even more money, the ownership team volunteered to be “slimed”, but employees and agents had to outbid them for the right to drench them in the green slime.  Employees were obviously motivated to slime the owners as over $6,000 was collected toward the overall total. One owner was outbid and employees paid $1,300 to see him slimed! A special thanks to the Stirling Stewardship Committee for all their hard work on organizing the event and making it happen.  A fun day was had by all and we look forward to more events like this in the future!
