More than $100,000 was raised on June 9 when NeighborWorks® Housing Solutions (NHS; www.nhsmass.org), the leading housing service provider in southern Massachusetts, hosted its 24th annual Mulligan Golf Tournament.
Proceeds from the tournament will support the NHS Veteran’s Fund that provides resources and assistance to veterans and their families being served by NHS. The event was held at Brookmeadow Country Club in Canton and attended by more than 150 golfers.
Golfers participated in a scramble-style tournament and were invited to join several other activities, including cornhole, poker, and a dice game, featured at select holes throughout the course.
Golfers and volunteers were treated to a catered lunch and program that detailed the work being done by NHS in support of veterans and their families.
“Thank you to all the golfers and sponsors who supported our Mulligan Golf Tournament,” said Robert Corley, CEO of NeighborWorks Housing Solutions. “Your commitment to ensuring that all veterans and their families have a safe and affordable place to call home is humbling.”
The tournament was founded in 2000 by a few key NHS board members who wanted to raise resources to help veterans and their families facing housing insecurity. Over the past 24 years, this event has grown to become one of NHS’ signature events and continues to sell out year after year. As it did last year, this year’s Mulligan Golf Tournament exceeded its fundraising goal by 25 percent.
Key sponsors were “Tips” Sponsor Curtis Construction Co.; Sweet Spot Sponsors NEI General Contracting, Atlantic Mechanical Contractor, Klein Hornig and South Shore Bank; and Golf Cart Sponsor Dedham Savings.
