On September 26th members and friends of EM NARI gathered at Shaker Hills Country Club in Harvard MA for the 20th Annual EM NARI Golf Tournament. The event is one of the chapter’s largest fundraisers of the year and is led by Tournament Chair Bill Farnsworth of Custom Contracting, Inc. Says Farnsworth, “The tournament is a great opportunity for our vendors and contractor members to spend time connecting and growing relationships while supporting the work of our chapter.” This year the tournament had nearly 100 golfers participate, joined by many other NARI members who volunteered at the event or joined the group for the buffet lunch.
Once again this year the tournament was anchored by the generous support of our three Titleist sponsors – CPS HVAC, Pella Windows and Doors, and Needham Bank. We also offered our Hole In One contest sponsored by Concord Lumber.
This year’s tournament again featured the popular Air Cannon contest and a reprise of our Putting Contest. Those activities were supported by Alpine Environmental and Dovercraft. Donations at the activities resulted in $2,600 in support going to our EM NARI Scholarship fund.
Each year the chapter chooses a non-profit organization to support through the tournament. In 2018, the tournament beneficiary was Power Forward, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and providing resources to individuals impacted by the opioid crisis. The opioid crisis has been more severe in Massachusetts than the national average – and the construction industry is particularly hard hit. The EM NARI Tournament raised $1150 for Power Forward and their work. Special thanks to Roma Tile for donating Patriots tickets and to all who donated.
Congratulations to the C&R Flooring foursome with Chris Zizza, Jeff Kline, Mark Whalen, and Eric McInerney. They shot a 60 on the day. Tough competition to beat – so start brushing up on your game now for next year’s event!C&R Flooring Foursome - Tournament Winners!
