Hayes Metal Fabrication is proud to be an active member of the community. Most recently, Hayes Metal Fabrication supported a charity fundraiser to support Beverly’s Birthdays, a local non-profit based in the Pittsburgh area. The fundraiser, held on April 30th, 2015, was the annual “Celebration of Birthday Cheer” to recognize the strides that the non-profit has made over the past year, as well as celebrate the children that the organization has been able to reach and raise money for upcoming events through the year.
Beverly’s Birthdays is charity set up to support underprivileged youth and give children a chance to enjoy a day where they are celebrated and given a chance to be with people that make their day special. Beverly’s Birthdays was founded by current Executive Director Megs Yunn in February 2012. The organization was inspired by a 12-year-old girl, Beverly, who Yunn worked with at a low-income after school program. Beverly shared with Yunn that she had never had her own birthday party or even her own slice of birthday cake. From there, the non-profit took shape as has grown with each of its three years serving the community and is now in over 30 homeless shelters around the Pittsburgh region.
This year’s “Celebration of Birthday Cheer” was held at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, and presold over 600 tickets. This year’s event helped Beverly’s Brithdays fundraise over $150,000 for future events and has Beverly’s Birthdays poised for tremendous growth to even further support the local children of Pittsburgh. Hayes Metal Fabrication is a proud sponsor of Beverly’s Birthdays and was represented at the event as well. There was a silent auction as one of the major fundraisers for the event, of which Hayes Metal Fabrication donated a basket. Attached below are pictures of the event to showcase the successful event supporting Beverly’s Birthdays. Hayes Metal Fabrication and its employees look forward to supporting local non-profits and continuing to stay involved and growing with the community that we live in.
