Oh Hey Phillip Phillips!

M&J Albany met at Austin’s Firegrill on Tuesday to send off another successful tax season.  Everyone was finally able to relax, enjoy some great food and drinks, and talk about something other than 1040′s.  Oh! And a local celebrity decided to come HOME for a little fun, and made an appearance at M&J’s party.  2012 American Idol Winner, Phillip Phillips, enjoyed a little dessert and posed for a few pictures with the M&J Albany crew!

Dodge, Duck, Dip, Dive & Dodge!

A fearless team of Mauldin & Jenkins fellas put their skills to the test in the First Annual Middle Georgia Mayhem Dodge Ball Challenge. Not only did players get to enjoy a little roughhousing and fun, but proceeds were donated to the youth programs of the Central Georgia Council, Boy Scouts of America.  The Dodge Ball Challenge took place on Saturday, April 12 at the First Presbyterian Day School’s Gymnasium in Macon, GA.

Well these guys must have been picked first on the playground because they dodged, ducked, dipped, dived, and dodged all the way to the final round and came in a close second place!

Way to go guys!  Who knew giving to charity could be so fun!

M&J Participates in “Every Child a Reader” Program

Last week, Bradenton M&J employees took a quick break from the business world and entered into the classrooms of young children.  Each year community leaders volunteer to read a book to children ages 3 to 5 as part of the “Every Child a Reader” Program initiated by the Early Learning Coalition of Manatee County, The Tampa Bay Rays Foundation and the Kiwanis Club of Bradenton.  The program promotes and stresses the importance of early literacy.

Tommye Barie, Victoria Barnett, Caroline Denton and Holly Littlefield read the book, “Click, Clack, Moo: Cows that Type” to their assigned classrooms and distributed a book to each child to take home and share with their family.

The children’s innocence, imagination and enthusiasm for reading was infectious!  We can’t wait to participate again next year.

Golfing for a Cause

Our friends Jonathan Schneider and David Brooks of BB&T Insurance recently invited M&J’s Brian Carter and Ken Thomas to play in a charity golf tournament benefitting the Jewish Family & Children’s Services of Sarasota.  Held at the beautiful Long Boat Key Club, golfers enjoyed beautiful weather while supporting a great organization.

A good time was had by all…Let’s just hope their golf game was up to par!
