GA Chapter Savannah Golf Tournament Put Fun In Fundraising
IEC’s Georgia Chapter hosted another fabulous event! Contractors, Partner members and guests enjoyed the 5th Annual IEC Georgia Chapter Golf Tournament. On Thursday, May 13th 7:30AM at The Club at Savannah Harbor, 20 teams teed off for some competitive fun and networking. As we adjust into the new normal, it is just as important to take time to connect with those in the electrical industry.
This golf tournament did more than just provide a networking opportunity; it proves to be a successful fundraiser as well. Funds were raised to go towards IEC GIFT, Georgia Industry Foundation for Training. Golfers purchased $1300 in mulligans and participated in a vacation raffle earning $2,170 in proceeds, which calculates a total of $3,470 donated to GIFT! Donations are used to provide scholarships to those students needing financial assistance to pursue their goal to be an electrician!
Congratulations to IEC apprentice Corey Neal of Glawson Electric for winning the Vacation Raffle. Cory is a member of the National Guard and is currently deployed, so he is attending classes online. When he returns he will be able to have a great vacation in Orlando, Florida staying at the Hard Rock Café along with 2 days at 3 theme parks!
At every IEC event there are the winners! We had a close game with a tie breaker needed between 3 of the teams. Let’s congratulate these skilled golfers;
- Tie Breaker winners, First Place Team Southway Crane- Lyn Leebern, David Koreman, Ben Robbins and Trey King scoring 60.
- Second Place Team ASI Lighting- Byron Pippin, Alan Tyson, Pat Walsh and Carson Strictland scoring 60.
