Summer campers and veterans alike will enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the Aquatics Center's spacious deck and zero-entry pools. Camp Southern Ground founder Zac Brown and CEO Mike Dobbs stand with Ben Weiss of the DAYLO Foundation Atlanta, Georgia, May 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Camp Southern Ground, the multi-mission nonprofit founded by GRAMMY Award-winning artist Zac Brown, has officially opened their new aquatics center, bicycle pump track, and solar energy field. A ribbon-cutting ceremony commemorated the grand opening, after which over 60 guests enjoyed tours of Camp Southern Ground’s state-of-the-art facilities and campus. Made possible by a generous donation from the Weiss family’s DAYLO Foundation and support from Jeff and Bonnie Giglio, the DAYLO Aquatics Center consists of a one-acre pool deck featuring two large zero-entry pools and three buildings – a 1,500-square-foot pavilion, a 400-square-foot pump house, and a 3,000-square-foot pool house with restrooms, locker rooms and a commercial laundry facility. Beautifully designed by Jefferson Browne Gresham Architects and constructed by New South Construction, this project was comprised of support and donations from numerous organizations, including key partners Shawn Still, Olympic Pool Plastering and Eric Brooks, Innovative Pool & Spa. Additional support was provided by the Georgia Pool & Hot Tub Alliance board and many of its members. The SunEnergy1 Solar Field, donated by solar energy supplier and developer SunEnergy1, is a 100% clean, renewable energy source. Currently featuring 1,700 solar panels, each installed by NEI Energy, the field will ultimately grow to five acres with a generation capacity of 1MW. In addition to providing long-term savings, solar fields help reduce air pollution, water usage, and reliance on natural gas for electricity production. Sponsored by the Sperling family in honor of their mother, the Dorothy C. Sperling Pump Track honors the legacy of an inspirational special educator, advocator, and philanthropist. Consisting of a circuit of meaningfully connected rollers and banked turns, this innovative sports facility, along with adaptive bicycles and qualified staff, will provide kids of varying abilities both fun and the opportunity to learn new skills. “We are honored to showcase these three amazing facilities, none of which would have been possible without the generosity and support of our loyal friends and partners,” said Camp Southern Ground CEO Mike Dobbs. “On behalf of all of us at Camp Southern Ground, we are humbled to be a part of something much bigger than ourselves, something that is impacting kids and veterans in truly life altering ways.” Future Camp Southern Ground growth includes a Campus Center with indoor recreation, performing stages, rock climbing, a weight room, flex space for arts/music and meeting space, and a Residential Village, which will increase the capacity to serve youth and veterans substantially. Currently serving veterans with two Warrior programs a month, Camp Southern Ground opens for summer camp on June 6, 2021. To learn more, please visit https://CampSouthernGround.org. About Camp Southern Ground In 2011, with the belief his musical talent was given for the purpose of putting more good into the world, Zac Brown purchased 400 acres of pastoral land in Fayetteville, Georgia, about 30 miles south of Atlanta, and built Camp Southern Ground, a world-class facility dedicated to serving youth and veterans. During summer months, Camp Southern Ground is an inclusive, residential camp serving kids from varied socioeconomic backgrounds, races and religions. Children with autism spectrum disorder, learning and attention issues and social or emotional challenges come together with typically developing children and children of military servicemembers to participate in programs that challenge, educate, and inspire. For the remainder of the year, Camp Southern Ground’s two veteran programs, Warrior Week and Warrior PATHH, help veterans find community, direction, purpose and healing during—and even long after—their transition back to civilian life. Both programs, provided at no cost to participants, start with a high-intensity week at Camp Southern Ground. For more information, visit https://CampSouthernGround.org.

Funko (NASDAQ: FNKO) stock is red hot, rising 15.7% as of 10:35 a.m. EDT Thursday -- and you can thank Bank of America for that. Early this morning, the investment bank announced it is reversing its opinion of Funko, and reversing its underperform rating on the stock, replacing it with a buy instead -- with a $30 price target that implies the shares could soar another 24% from today's prices. It didn't take long for investors to suffer buyer's remorse, however, and by yesterday's closing trade, Funko had given back all those gains, and was once again trading at its pre-earnings price.
Foodservice businesses need an exemption from the scheduled scale-back of the wage and rent subsidies to bring back nearly half a million jobs still missing from the Canadian economy.EDMONTON, Alberta, May 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Restaurants Canada is calling for a sector-specific support package to recover more than 400,000 foodservice jobs — including 52,500 jobs still missing from Alberta’s restaurant sector. “Restaurants are key to feeding Alberta’s recovery and bringing back jobs, but first they need to survive,” said Mark von Schellwitz, Restaurants Canada Vice President, Western Canada. “If subsidies are scaled back too soon, they won’t have the working capital they need to transition from survival to revival.” Restaurants account for most of Canada’s pandemic employment gap According to the April Labour Force Survey from Statistics Canada, more than two thirds (70.9%) of the 503,000 jobs still missing from the Canadian economy in the wake of COVID-19 are from the foodservice sector. Factoring in the 80,700 employees who didn’t work any hours last month, there are still 437,500 fewer people working in Canada’s foodservice sector than there were in February 2020. This includes 52,500 restaurant jobs still not recovered in Alberta — a third of the province’s foodservice workforce. With a number of provinces prolonging or increasing dining restrictions as they continue to contend with the third wave of the pandemic, further foodservice job losses will likely be reported in May. Half of restaurants face risk of closure if subsidies are scaled back too soon “The vast majority of foodservice businesses have been operating at a loss or barely breaking even throughout the entire pandemic, with nearly half consistently losing money for more than a year,” said von Schellwitz. “They have been counting on the rent and wage subsidies to be the bridge they need to stay alive until dining restrictions are lifted and they can truly start to recover without the help of emergency support.” According to the latest survey data from Restaurants Canada: 8 out of 10 foodservice businesses have been operating at a loss or barely scraping by throughout the entire pandemic, with 45% consistently losing money for more than a year.7 out of 10 restaurant operators continuing to lose money expect they’ll need at least a year to return to profitability. “If restaurants are forced to contend with less and less from the critical wage and rent subsidies before they’re able to operate without them, many will have to give up and close their businesses down for good,” said von Schellwitz. Restaurants Canada is calling on the federal government to immediately introduce a sector-specific Restaurant Survival Support Package containing the following measures: An exemption from the scheduled scale-back of the rent and wage subsidies for the highly affected foodservice sector, and an extension of these vital programs for restaurants until at least April 2022.The option for any restaurants eligible for the wage subsidy to also apply for added funding through the Canada Recovery Hiring Program.Partial forgiveness for all government-backed loans and an extension of application deadlines for existing programs.Tax credits to defray costs of COVID-19 health and safety expenditures. About Restaurants Canada Restaurants Canada is a national, not-for-profit association advancing the potential of Canada’s diverse and dynamic foodservice industry through member programs, research, advocacy, resources and events. Before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Alberta’s $12 billion restaurant industry was the province’s third-largest source of private sector jobs, typically employing 148,000 people.
