A total of $101,455 was raised on June 10 when NeighborWorks® Housing Solutions, the leading housing service provider in southern Massachusetts, hosted its 23rd annual Mulligan Golf Tournament, exceeding its $80,000 goal.
All proceeds from the tournament, which was held at Brookmeadow Country Club in Canton and attracted more than 150 golfers, will again support the NHS Veteran’s Fund to provide resources and assistance to veterans and their families in NHS housing.
This year’s tournament was the most successful to date, due in part to the number of sponsors who stepped up and supported the event this year. Leading the way was Curtis Construction Company, a full-service construction management company based in Stoughton, serving as the Presenting “Tips” Sponsor.
“This is one of my favorite events of the year,” said John Curtis, CEO of Curtis Construction. “We love supporting this fun event that provides real support for formerly homeless veterans and their families. Housing for veterans and their families is greatly needed, especially in our region. I am proud to partner with NeighborWorks Housing Solutions to help veterans who need a home.”
Additional sponsors included “Sweet Spot” sponsors Klein Hornig, LLP, Atlantic Mechanical Contractors, NEI General Contracting, and Protiviti. NEI General Contracting and Dedham Savings sponsored the tournaments golf carts. Patrons also showed their support for veterans by honoring local veterans throughout the golf course.
Golfers were treated to games during the day, including par 3 poker, a dice toss and a corn hole game. Following the tournament, golfers and guests were invited to join a post-event luncheon, where awards and raffles were announced. Attendees also heard from a local veteran who, through permanent housing owned and operated by NHS, has been able to finally find stability and access the services he needs to stay safe, healthy, and housed.
“Mother Nature was working with us during this much anticipated and enjoyable day,” said Robert Corley, CEO of NeighborWorks Housing Solutions. “We’re grateful to the many golfers and sponsors who came out to support the veterans and their families in our communities and we are thrilled with the unprecedented amount of funds raised.”
