What We Have Been Up To

Bike Safety Rodeo

The staff from Hare Wynn gave out more than 100 bike helmets to the fourth graders at Avondale Elementary School. Each fourth-grade student at the school was fitted for a bike helmet that he/she was able to keep. After receiving their helmets, the students participated in a unique bicycle rodeo where they rode bicycles through a specially-designed course to teach key safety principles like correctly identifying and obeying street signage and choosing between safe and unsafe routes to ride upon. We were honored to partner with Children's of Alabama, the Injury Free Coalition for Kids and United Way of Central Alabama on this project!
FOCUS on Recovery Golf Tournament

Hare Wynn was a proud sponsor of the FOCUS golf tournament. Focus on Recovery serves women in early recovery from alcohol and drug addiction by providing a safe place to live and life skills training during the transitional period between treatment and returning home. We love supporting such an important cause!

Hope for Autumn Crawfish Boil

We had a great time at the Hope for Autumn Crawfish Boil. There were games, music, food, and so much more! The crawfish boil raises money towards assistance, research and awareness for childhood cancer. We were happy to support and be a sponsor for such an amazing charity and an awesome event. 
Birmingham Bar "Cocktails in the Courtyard"

Hare Wynn sponsored the Cocktails in the Courtyard reception, in the recently renovated courtyard at the Birmingham Bar Association. Our Birmingham attorneys enjoyed the unveiling of the BBA's new state-of-the-art CLE classrooms!
