Brookhaven, GA, August 7The Briarwood Park Conservancy (BPC) announced that after two years of existence they have received their official 501(c)3 status from the IRS.

Chad Boles of the BPC said, “The hard work of many people including the Board of Directors, hundreds of volunteer hours and money from the surrounding neighborhoods and very generous in-kind donations from local home builders and businesses have created this reality.”

With plans for another project this Fall, Boles adds tax deductible donations to fund park improvements can be made on the BPC website.

In other Briarwood Park news, Kurt Salmon and Associates, an Atlanta based global management consulting company, selected Briarwood Park for their upcoming 2014 PowerDay scheduled for Sept. 12, from 9 am-noon.

Powerday is a global initiative designed to promote social responsibility among its employees, alumni, clients and business partners. Last year nearly 100% of its global workforce of more than 1,400 professionals volunteered for some 80 projects at 46 charities in 13 countries.

“We couldn’t be happier Briarwood Park got the nod to host one of the many 2014 PowerDay events. The hard work of our volunteers and supporters really shows at the park and will attract more events in the future,” said Boles.

The BPC extends an invitation to anyone who would like to participate in park “TLC” days. BPC provides coffee, donuts and OJ for breakfast.
