Champagne Beverage "GIVE BACK DAY" for City of Covington - Saturday, May 16th

In efforts of giving back to the community where, local Budweiser Distributor Champagne Beverage Company,  started 58 years ago, the Champagne family, as well as their 140 employees, will be gathering in various places in the City of Covington on Saturday, May 16th at 8 AM as part of the company’s “Give Back Day”.  The goal is to restore and beautify 2 parks; Hubie Gallagher Park at 1000 W. 15th Avenue and Reverend Peter Atkins Park at 701 N. Tyler Street. 

"The generosity and support of Champagne Beverage is clearly evidenced in the City of Covington and throughout the Northshore by their ongoing sponsorship efforts and participation in the many programs, projects, and special events that directly benefit our community.  "Give Back Day" exemplifies the unending commitment and community spirit of the Champagne Beverage family and their employees to enhancing our quality of life in Covington.  We appreciate Champagne Beverage's initiative for this endeavor in our community," Covington Mayor Mike Cooper.   

Lawn care, trash disposal, painting, pressure washing and shrub planting are only a few of the chores Champagne Beverage employees will be taking pride in completing that day.  In addition, CBC is looking to orchestrate a semi-annual charity initiative focusing on the neighboring parishes in which they service, not just St. Tammany. 

CBC President, Joel Champagne Jr says, Since 1957, the year we were founded, Covington has been our home. In 2008, we made the choice to move out of city limits in order to expand for the future. Both parks we are helping revitalize on Saturday mean a great deal to our family, therefore, as lifelong residents of Covington, our hope is to show its great citizens our commitment to the community, a community which has helped our company grow to where it is today.”
