Our North Texas team recently hosted their 9th Annual Night of Comedy, where an all-star lineup of Balfour Beatty employees served up laughs for a good cause. Through sponsorships, ticket sales, and raffles, the event raised $50,000 – a Night of Comedy record! – for local charities, including 22Kill, American Heart Association - Fort Worth, Make-A-Wish North Texas, Elizabeth Toon Charities, Children’s Medical Center Foundation, March of Dimes-Texas, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, and Texas Health Resources Foundation.
Balfour Beatty is committed to making a positive difference in the places where we work and live by supporting organizations and causes that are important to our employees and our communities. Through hosting charitable events like Comedy Night mentioned above, annual golf tournaments supporting Children’s Health Foundation and our local schools, and our Sporting Clays Classic benefiting the Texas Health Resources Foundation, Balfour Beatty Texas raised nearly $500,000 in 2019!
In addition to monetary support, Balfour Beatty employees are passionate about volunteering their time and talents to support their local communities. Each year, we hold a Community Day that provides opportunities for employees to participating in activities like visiting with seniors, packing food for the local food bank, repairing homes for disadvantaged families and serving lunch at the local veteran’s center. Individual employees also volunteer their time to serve as mentors in their local school and youth organizations and serve on boards of local charities. At Balfour Beatty, what we DO is as important as how much we give.
