Dollar Energy Fund hosted its annual Golf Classic on Friday, September 10, 2021, sponsored by First National Bank. We welcomed 25 foursomes at Quicksilver Golf Club for a great day on the course.
The day started off with our renowned Bloody Mary Bar and a light breakfast. Golfers set out on the course at 8 a.m. with a scramble format. With friendly competitions along the way, such as hole-in-one challenges, longest drive contests and more, golfers were entertained throughout all 18 holes. The staff at Quicksilver worked diligently to provide golfers with cold drinks and snacks as they tackled the course. Hot dogs were also served at the turn.
After all teams finished the course, guests returned to the clubhouse for lunch sponsored by AEC Group, and networked with friends as they viewed over 20 silent auction items. Shortly after, Dollar Energy Fund’s CEO, Chad Quinn, and Director of Communications, Jody Robertson, presented awards and prizes. The 2021 Golf Classic prizes were sponsored by Pennsylvania American Water.
The foursome from Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania beat out reigning champions, Peoples, to win the Utility Cup. The Utility Cup was established in 2014 as a way to create friendly competition between our utility partners. This year, nine foursomes representing four of Dollar Energy Fund’s utility partners participated in our golf outing and were eligible to win the Cup and bragging rights for the year. As a prize, Columbia’s hardship fund will receive an additional $1,000 contribution from Dollar Energy Fund’s general fundraising. In addition, the winners will have their name engraved on the cup and will be able to keep the trophy until they defend the title during next year’s outing.
- Bruce Austin – longest drive (men)
- Emily Farah – longest drive (women)
- Jake Gentile – closest to the pin
- Brian Tupper – longest putt
We want to thank everyone who helped with the 2021 Dollar Energy Fund Golf Classic. From those who golfed, to those who donated a silent auction item – we couldn’t have done it without you. As always, 100 percent of the proceeds from this event will be matched by our partnering utility companies and will go directly to help families in need.
Dollar Energy Fund would also like to thank all of our Golf Classic sponsors. Their involvement was an integral part of making our event a success, and it goes a long way towards helping the families we serve. Our efforts would not be possible without their support and generosity. We are also grateful to everyone at Quicksilver Golf Club for their excellent service and accommodations.
At Dollar Energy Fund, we always encourage our supporters to have fun while raising money for families and individuals who are on their path to self-sufficiency. Stay tuned for future events by following us on Facebook and Twitter, and sign up for our monthly newsletter.
