Red Nose Day is a fundraising campaign run by the non-profit organization Comic Relief Inc., a registered U.S. 501(c)(3) public charity. Red Nose Day brings people together to have fun, raise money and change the lives of kids who need our help the most.

Red Nose Day launched in the US in 2015, dedicated to ending child poverty, both in the U.S. and in some of the poorest communities in the world. The money raised by Red Nose Day in the U.S. has benefited programs for children and young people in all 50 states and in 25 countries internationally.

Globally, Red Nose Day has raised over $1 billion since its launch in the UK in 1988.

Tammy Krenz Named Director of Project Administration

Tammy’s role at Berghammer has long involved much more than solely project coordinator duties as the Lead Coordinator. Her new title is a more appropriate reflection of her standing within the organization as the director of administrative standards, protocols, and compliance on our construction projects. Tammy has long been the leader in maintaining and enforcing the project control and documentation standards that are necessary for effective project management in our fast-paced and often chaotic construction world. She is our internal control for risk management on a project management level to ensure documentation standards are maintained. Under Tammy’s tutelage, the entire coordinator team has continued to grow as an extension of these traits and skills that we value as a company.
