Around the Firm: May 2019 Update

Written on May 29, 2019

Since the April 15th tax deadline passed, our accountants and advisors haven’t slowed down! Our team is still working hard to serve our clients, investing in our local communities and—of course—having a little fun. Here’s what’s happening around the Firm!

Tampa Office has a Literal Field Day

To celebrate the Warren Averett team’s hard work, dedication and passion, the Tampa office recently orchestrated a Field Day! On a Friday afternoon in May, the Tampa office team headed out to a nearby park in Tampa and divided into three teams: the Tax Department, the Audit Department and other departments (including Accounting Services, Staffing & Recruiting and administrative professionals). Field Day events included a relay race, three-legged race, egg-and-spoon race and a balloon-pop relay race. Teams were also able to complete the first round of a corn-hole tournament and a game of giant Jenga before rain postponed the remaining activities. The Tampa office plans to reschedule the tug-of-war and kickball events in a rain-check Field Day event after the October 15th tax filing deadline!

Sharing our Success

Warren Averett’s team has been participating in service projects and partnering with community organizations across the Southeast. Below, we’ve included a few highlights from the month of May.

  • Our Fort Walton Beach office and Destin office team members spent an afternoon volunteering at the Panhandle Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), where they walked and played with animals in the shelter.
  • Several Montgomery office team members attended the Fore the Children Golf Tournament benefitting Children’s Harbor. Warren Averett even sponsored hole three!
  • Our Tampa office team members raised funds for and walked in the Best Buddies Friendship Walk, which benefitted individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Summer Education Programs are Kicking Off

Summer is a busy time for training and learning at Warren Averett!
