Dollar Energy Fund hosted its annual Golf Classic on Friday, June 15, 2018. We welcomed 32 foursomes and more than 120 guests at Quicksilver Golf Club for a great day on the course.
The day started off with our renowned Bloody Mary bar and breakfast from our friends at Quicksilver. Golfers set out on the course shortly after 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start. With friendly competitions along the way, such as hole-in-one challenges, longest drive contests and more, golfers remained engaged and entertained for all 18 holes. Our staff worked diligently to provide golfers with cold drinks as they tackled the course, courtesy of our friends at Dr. Pepper Snapple Group and Labatt. Hot dogs were also served at the turn.
After all teams finished the course, Rita’s Italian Ice surprised everyone back at the clubhouse with spiked drinks. Guests also enjoyed lunch and networked with friends inside the clubhouse as they viewed over 50 silent auction items. Burgers, grilled chicken, coleslaw and potato salad were just a few of the delicious lunch options to choose from. Shortly after, Dollar Energy Fund’s CEO, Chad Quinn, and Board President, Ron Giulianelli, presented awards.
Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania held their position as Utility Cup reigning champions for the fourth year in a row! Columbia’s team included Ken Brewer, Phil Spencer, Jerry Litzenberg and Dave Bokash. 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 had their name engraved on the cup and will be able to keep the trophy until they defend the title once again during next year’s outing.
We want to thank everyone who helped with the 2018 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.
