Summit Golf Outing Raises $17,000+
Foundation fundraising events support industry-specific professional education and workforce development.
In the early morning on Wednesday Jan. 20, a busload of golfers arrived at The Quarry Golf Club for a great day of camaraderie and fun to benefit The AED Foundation. Thanks to the generous sponsors and golfers, more than $17,000 was raised to help fund Foundation programs and services.
Golf sponsors were: event co-sponsor Sentry Insurance, “true friend” sponsor Wells Fargo Construction, and hole sponsors Collateral Specialists, Equipment Data Associates-EDA, Liebherr Construction Equipment Co. and AED Web Services. Maintainer Corp. and Service Trucks International were Hole-In-One sponsors – nobody won one of the service truck prizes this year, but there’s always Orlando – mark your calendar for Jan. 26, 2011.
