Annual Golf Tournament
2015 and 2014
The game of golf requires coordination, perseverance, adaptability and above all practice. Over the past two years, our chapter has discovered that hosting a tournament requires these same hard-won skills.
The EWB Tri-Cities chapter hosted its second golf tournament in 2015 and the improvements were remarkable, but there are still challenges to overcome for any future golf programs. In the April 2014 tournament, the team raised $1266 even with only one team show up to play. In June 2015, the second tournament was emblematic of the kind of success and growth we’ve experienced this year with a full 7 teams and over $3,200 raised.
This success was made possible by the incredible sweat equity from each and every member of the team from soliciting sponsors to printing signs and coordinating the logistics which allowed our tournament to come off without a hitch and leave everyone with smiles on their faces at the end. Our sponsors really made the event the success that it was and so many thanks are in order for Abernathy-Thomas, AIChE, BCS, BWSC, Fresh Market, General Shale, LDA engineering, Mainstreet Pizza and of course Buffalo Valley Golf Course for graciously hosting our event.
Underpinning the extraordinary project work has been a fundraising team dedicated to ensuring financial support for our mission to help Samne and hopefully other communities around the world now and into the future.
