Mezrah Consulting’s Recent Community Activities
Autumn is a busy time at Mezrah Consulting, however, we still make time to support our community through sponsoring and participating in various charitable events. Below are two recent contributions that we have made to our local community and beyond.On Tuesday, November 14, 2017, The University of Alabama held its River Pitch Competition. The competition gives students and community members an opportunity to engage in a 3-minute pitch of a business idea to of a panel of judges. Mezrah Consulting sponsored the event andTodd Mezrah, a proud alumnus of The University of Alabama, was invited to be one of the River Pitch judges.
The participants had the opportunity to win $1,000 and, more importantly, to meet business leaders who could give them valuable feedback, help them more fully develop their business idea, and assist in improving their pitch.
River Pitch is a joint effort of the Alabama Entrepreneurship Institute and The EDGE Entrepreneurship Center. Both of these organizations are part of The University of Alabama Culverhouse College of Commerce, the Chamber of Commerce of West Alabama, and the city of Tuscaloosa.
Annual Monin Flavor RideOn Wednesday, October 11, 2017, Todd Mezrah will be joining the team at Monin Gourmet Flavorings for the Monin Flavor Ride to raise funds for the Helen David Relief Fund at the USBG National Charity Foundation. The bike ride starts and ends at Clearwater Beach. The team will cross four bridges and parallel a Designated Scenic Highway for much of the route.
The Helen David Relief Fund honors the memory of Tony Abou-Ganim’s cousin, Port Huron, a MI bar owner and community leader who passed from breast cancer. The USBG National Charity Foundation works to support the lifelong stability and well being of service industry professionals through education and service activities.
Mezrah Consulting was happy to support the Kiwanis Clubs of Antelope Valley in Palmdale, CA, by adopting a Flock of Ducks for their 12th Annual Antelope Valley Rubber Duck Race. The race took place on September 1, 2017, at the Lazy River at Dry Town Water Park. The rubber ducks were released to float one lap around the Lazy River and the first twelve ducks around the water attraction were the winners. The rubber ducks had numbers on their bottoms that corresponded to prizes, including a $1,000,000 prize (unfortunately, the Million Dollar Duck wasn’t one of the first 12)!
The Kiwanis Club of Antelope Valley supports projects such as scholarships at four local high schools, the Annual Adopt-A-Family during the holiday season, providing a hot meal quarterly for food insecure families in conjunction with Grace Resource, and their 30 year project with Palmdale School District recognizing excellent student behavior.
