3rd Annual CMAA Golf Benefit Wrap Up

What a great event last Friday! The CMAA Gulf Coast Chapter 3rd Annual Golf Benefit was an outstanding event with excellent turnout at Lakewood Country Club in support of scholarship funds. The weather was fine and rain held up long enough to complete the course.

With your help, the Annual Golf Benefit has quickly become one of the Gulf Coast Chapter’s most successful fundraising efforts—not only in supporting our area scholarships financially, but also a tremendous networking event for Chapter members and industry partners. This year also saw an increase in the number of registered participants, sponsorships and prize donations. When the final donations were tallied, the net proceeds were over $4,000, all of which will go directly to funding the 2015 Scholarship awards, to be announced at the 4th Annual Regional Infrastructure Conferenceon June 10.

Thanks to our many sponsors for helping to make this event so successful. Special thanks to our Ace Sponsors, Katie’s Restaurant (Hill House Chargrilled Oysters) and Abita (Crawfish Boil/After Party). Our Eagle Sponsors included AECOM, Archer Western, Barriere Construction, CSRS, GLF Construction Corporation, GSRES, PNI, PSI, Rimkus Consulting Group, Royal Engineers, Tolunay-Wong Engineers (who also grilled and served a variety of delicious sausage on the course), Vanir, and VolkertCity Blueprint & Supply was our Birdie Sponsor, and Hole Sponsors included HNTBTerracon, and Trigon Associates.

Our outstanding donors included Lakewood Country Club, Beau Rivage Resort & Casino, Lakeside Toyota, Academy Sports, and Rouses. And of course our many volunteers who made the event possible on all levels!
