My favorite time of the year just got better with the anticipation of yet another Birmingham, AL. festival.

“Think globally. Act locally.”
Words to live by, and you can do just that, on Tuesday, December 6th, 5:30, at the Avondale Brewery by attending the Bham Now BOLD Series featuring Jim McClintock. (purchase tickets here)
UAB world renowned explorer, researcher and author Jim McClintock will be taking the attendees on a virtual tour of Antarctica. He will bear witness to the rapid changes that are occurring in our southernmost continent and the living lab that is disappearing as a result of climate change.
One of the Bham Now BOLD Series special features is the opportunity, for the speaker to choose a charity in which a portion of the proceeds will be donated. McClintock selected Hand in Paw – one of Birmingham’s most amazing and kindhearted organizations. Checkout the slideshow above and the videos about this program that serves nearly 100,000 of our neighbors in the Birmingham region.
It will be a special night globally and locally.
Please join us!
