Once again we enjoyed a beautiful day for our 18th annual EM NARI Golf Tournament. With a nearly sold out field of 125 golfers registered, players appreciated their time on the links connecting with fellow members. (Looking for tournament pictures??? Scroll down to view!) Congratulations to Chris Lerra and his Sherwin Williams foursome for winning the tournament!
This year the tournament raised nearly $1,000 for the Room to Dream Foundation. Their focus is to make chronically-ill children feel special and improve their quality of life by transforming their environments. Whether it is a hospital room, a bedroom at home, or a facility for sick children and their families, each project provides a unique opportunity for them to work their magic and promote strength, imagination, and self-worth for a child. Thank you to Roma Tile, Puccio Electric and F. W. Webb for donating prizes for our auction. Thank you to our Charity Auction Sponsor, New England Design & Construction. And, thank you to all those who bid.
Our tournament also featured the popular Air Cannon contest again, sponsored by 1st Quality Discount Flooring. This special hole is a fundraiser for our EM NARI Scholarship Fund. This year we raised $660 for scholarships at the hole. In the spring we will award another round of scholarships to children of EM NARI members and to students who are pursuing careers in the trades. Thanks to all who played.
The EM NARI golf event is not possible without the dedication and hours invested by Tournament Chair Bill Farnsworth of Custom Contracting, Inc. From recruiting sponsors to signing up players to ensuring every logistical detail is in order, Bill is the key to the success of this event which is the largest annual fundraiser for our chapter. Kudos to Bill for another job well done. Our chapter is grateful!
Lastly, we need to give a huge shout out to all our tournament sponsors and supporters! Your support of this golf event allows us to continue to grow EM NARI and develop the programs and services our members value. THANK YOU!
