Stirling Properties has its own version of the Olympic Games! Employees recently celebrated the 6th Annual Stirling Olympics, an event hosted by the Stirling Stewardship Committee to raise money for charitable causes throughout the Gulf South region. The games were a HUGE SUCCESS, raising $54,000 for local nonprofit organizations!
Funds raised from the event benefited Compassion That Compels, a nonprofit organization that provides spiritual, emotional, and tangible resources for individuals battling cancer through the distribution of Compassion Bags both nationally and internationally, as well as St. Nicholas Center for Children, a nonprofit center that works to transform the lives of children diagnosed with autism, developmental delays, and neurological disorders by seeking to meet their educational and therapeutic needs. Representatives from each organization were on hand to accept a check for $27,000 each.
Throughout the day, Stirling Properties’ team members battled one another in quirky competitions and relay races such as Musical Chairs, Skornhole, Stirling Ball, Word Search Relay, Backyard Sling, and Stirling’s Dirty Laundry. Scores were tallied, and individual medals were awarded for each event.
The games were judged by Christi Zito, Steve Zito, and Tommy Chisholm (Zito∙Russell Architects), Tyler Marquette (Fishman Haygood), Tommy Buckel (Duplantis Design Group), Misty Labat (IBERIABANK) and Kasey Dorr (RCI). Dick Cyr served as the event emcee. Fidelity Bank, Smoothie King, Captain’s Tasty Treats, and Standard Coffee provided participants with food and beverages throughout the day.
The Gold Medal overall went to the Raspberry Berets. Congratulations to Beezie Landry, Charles Barclay, Cyndie Quave, Gena Randall, Lynn Blanchard, Marty Mayer, Rebecca Pritchard, Sonia Shoemaker, Kelly Wellmeyer, and Saban Sellers! The Pistachios took home the Silver Medal—Ellen McCain, Jaime Burchfield, Jeanne Taravella, Jeff Marshall, Lesia Richardson, Morgan Lera, Susan Maher, Mark Salvetti, and Griffin Lennox. Splash Money secured the Bronze Medal—Carly Plotkin, Craig Oser, Johnny Tolson, Justin Toomey, Valda Butler, Cheri Magee, Patrick Malik, Jan Kinard, Peggy Foots, and Jill Meeks.
