BURKE Partners With ACG Charlotte For Deal Crawl Conference

BURKE has partnered with the ACG for their upcoming Deal Crawl Conference, taking place September 7th and 8th at the Ritz Carlton in Charlotte, North Carolina. The ACG Deal Crawl was created in 2013 to allow equity capital providers to “crawl” across town visiting various investment banking firms. Attendees, whose numbers this year will likely exceed 350, include private equity professionals, investment bankers, attorneys, accountants, and others focused on middle-market mergers and acquisitions. The conference will include an Opening Reception, Investment Bank & Private Equity Firm 1-on-1 meetings, Keynote Luncheon, Affinity Seminars, breakout sessions, and a closing reception. BURKE not only created the microsite and a z-card, a foldable pocket sized guide for the event, but did all the event branding, as well. In addition, BURKE created signage that will be displayed throughout the conference.   More about the ACG: The Association for Corporate Growth (ACG), founded in 1954, is an international organization dedicated to fostering sound corporate growth.  High quality performance, earnings, and increasing corporate value are ACG concerns. As a nonprofit corporate development organization with approximately 14,000 members, representing Fortune 500, Fortune 1000, FTSE 100, and middle market companies, in 56 chapters in North and South America, Europe, and Asia, ACG is the premier global association for and about professionals involved in corporate growth, corporate development, and mergers, and acquisitions.

Why We Continue To Host The Toys For Tots (T4T) Golf Tournament

Anyone who knows us at BURKE, knows that we love getting involved with the community and giving back. Our non-profit, A Big Heart Foundation, is hosting the Toys for Tots (T4T) Annual Golf Tournament for its ninth consecutive outing this year. It’s crazy to think that nine years have flown by, and next year will be a full decade! Like any event, once the golf tournament is over and everything is packed up, it’s back to the drawing board to start planning for next year’s tournament. From organizing our tee-off event in the spring, deciding on venues for our planning luncheons, reaching out to the community for raffle and auction item donations, to designing our sponsor awards and selecting shirt colors for the players and volunteers, every detail is reevaluated to make the next year better! Thankfully, we have amazing sponsors that continue to come back with their gracious help and support. With that being said, we would like to thank the following sponsors for their continued support throughout the years: Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, CalAtlantic Homes, SSI Schaefer, Century Contractors, Continental Tire, Curtiss-Wright Corporation, Kenny Color Lab, Lucky Clays Farm, Lucky Clays Fresh, Yadkin Bank, Carocon, Toys & Co., Elliott Davis Decosimo, SGL Group, Republic Services, UNC Charlotte, Cunningham Recreation, Wells Fargo Insurance Services and Anthony & Sylvan Pools. We hit the pavement hard every year in hopes of finding new sponsors to make the golf tournament bigger and better than the last. Over the last few years we have been fortunate to partner with even more like-minded area businesses like Bojangles’, Mellano & Company, Carolina Tree Care, SunBelt Packaging, Autobell, Epoch Universal, Cushman & Wakefield, Lake Printing, PMC Commercial Interiors and Insperity. The majority of proceeds raised at the tournament benefit the Marines Toys for Tots Foundation. Last year, working with the U.S. Marine Corps, we invited a group of children from Hope Haven to our partner toy store, Toys & Co., to shop for a Christmas they would never forget! Each child was given a $250 gift certificate to spend on toys of their choice. Moments like these are what propel us forward year after year. Through the generosity of our sponsors, we have also been able to support a few other charitable foundations in the Charlotte area that benefit children: Arby’s Foundation, Classroom Central, Project 658, Servants With A Heart, Supportive Housing Communities and The Sand Box. We are extremely grateful for the continuous support that we receive year after year and look forward to another nine years of giving back!
