Golf combines the thrill of competition with the joy of giving back. Recently, the 2023 NESSA golf outing brought together passionate players and generous sponsors to tee off for a noble cause. With the objective of supporting a local charity, a scholarship fund and bringing together janitor and sanitary supply professionals, this successful golf event left a lasting impact both on and off the green.
Setting The Stage: On a picturesque morning, the lush fairways and manicured greens of the prestigious Charter Oak Country Club became the backdrop for an event that would go beyond the usual strokes and putts. The NESSA golf committee, comprised of dedicated professionals from various local distribution and manufacturers, spared no effort in ensuring that the day would be unforgettable.
Swinging for a Cause: The primary objective of the event was to raise funds for a local charity and support a scholarship fund. The participating companies and sponsors rallied behind this cause, generously donating sponsorships, prizes and their time to make the event a resounding success.
The Perfect Blend of Competition and Camaraderie: The tournament itself was a perfect blend of fierce competition and camaraderie. Golfers of all skill levels showcased their talents, embracing the friendly spirit of the game while vying for the coveted title. With teams representing different companies, the event fostered networking opportunities and strengthened industry relationships.
Unforgettable Experiences: The NESSA team and Charter Oak Country Club went the extra mile to create an unforgettable experience for the participants and attendees. On certain holes, unique challenges awaited golfers, adding an element of excitement and unpredictability to the game. From closest-to-the-pin contests, the dart board challenge, putting contests, to hole-in-one challenges with luxury travel prizes, the event offered an array of thrilling moments.
Highlighting the Cause: Along with raising money for a scholarship, NESSA partnered with a local charity called Lifebridge that works to meet the urgent needs of the homeless and under-housed in the North Shore of Massachusetts. During the golf reception, the NESSA group was able to present a donation to the group.
Celebration and Recognition: As the sun began to set, the event concluded with a delightful awards ceremony and reception. Participants were recognized for their outstanding performances, but the real winners were the scholarship recipient and Lifebridge foundation who would benefit from the funds raised. The event's success was a testament to the collective effort of the organizing committee, sponsors, and participants who all shared a commitment to making a positive difference in the community.
The annual NESSA Golf Outing was a resounding success in 2023.
