NBI Annual Holiday Food Drives

It’s that time of the year again! Nationwide Boiler’s Annual Holiday Food Drives have officially begun. That’s right, we are holding two separate food drives again this year: a traditional food drive to support the Inter-Faith Treasure House in Washougal, WA and a virtual drive to support the Alameda County Community Food Bank (ACCFB) in California. Last year not only did we meet our goals but we exceeded them, and we look forward to two successful drives again this year.

The Inter-Faith Treasure House helps has provided food and assistance to Camas and Washougal residents in need for over 50 years. Our Controls Division, Pacific Combustion Engineering, will be hosting a drive from now until November 20th with a goal of collecting at least 10 full bags of food.

With the belief that food is a basic human right, the ACCFB distributes millions of healthy meals each year to those in need in the California’s Bay Area. Nationwide Boiler’s virtual food drive allows us to “shop” virtually for the organization’s most needed items. Our goal this year is to raise a total of $500 and, if we can meet this goal, Nationwide Boiler will match the donation, dollar-for-dollar!

We understand the importance of giving back to our communities, especially in a time like this. If you would like to help us meet our goal, you can “shop” or donate an amount of your choice, here: https://www.vfd-accfb.org/grouphome.aspx?ID=7521

We are happy to be able to continue this tradition and help provide healthy meals to those less fortunate this holiday season.

$40,000 Raised at Nationwide Boiler's 40th Annual Charity Golf Tournament

Last year, Nationwide Boiler had to make the hard and necessary decision to postpone our 40th Annual Charity Golf Tournament due to the rapid growth of the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, however, is a different story. We were able to coordinate a safe and successful event earlier this month, once again in support of Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area and the ABMA Scholarship Fund. With about two-thirds of our normal attendance, more than 50 sponsors and donors, and no in-person banquets, we are happy to announce that we raised a total of $40,000 for these two outstanding organizations!

The tournament began with a practice round, 4-man scramble at The Links at Spanish Bay, followed by tournament play at the renowned Pebble Beach Golf Links. The weather was near perfect for the two days of golf and after their round at Pebble Beach, guests enjoyed lunch and drinks on the patio right off of the 18th hole.  To comply with local COVID restrictions around gatherings, no in-person banquets were held. While this eliminated multiple revenue streams, it did provide the opportunity for us to incorporate a virtual / online auction for the first time in the history of our event. This new feature allowed those not in attendance with the opportunity to participate, support, and purchase items from our auction. In addition to the virtual auction, we presented golf awards, announced the raffle winner, and played a game of Jeopardy in a virtual fashion via a Zoom meeting. Overall, it was a great week, a successful event, and our guests were happy to be back at Pebble Beach after a year off. 

Congratulations to our tournament winners:
Low Gross Champion - Jim Lohmeyer, Blue Cross Blue Shield
Handicap Flight Champion - Vern Eriksen, Nooter/Eriksen
Callaway Flight Champion - Miles Freeman, Heat Transfer Specialists (HTS)

A huge thank-you out to everyone involved! We wouldn't be able to make this happen without the many sponsors, donors, and guests who support us year after year. We are extremely fortunate to be able to continue this tradition of giving back to  organizations that do so much for our community. We did $40K, with 40 golfers for our 40th Anniversary - here's to another 40 years!

Record Amount of $70,000 Raised at 42nd Annual Charity Golf Tournament

Nationwide Boiler's 42nd Annual Charity Golf Tournament was another major success! With the support of more than 55 generous sponsors, donors, and event participants, we were able to raise $69,639 and, due to a last-minute anonymous donor, we rounded it out for a grand total of $70,000 raised! All proceeds will once again be split and donated back to Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area and the ABMA's Randy Rawson Scholarship Fund.

Nationwide Boiler hosted 52 golfers and over 120 guests from across the country including customers, vendors, representatives, NBI board members, and NBI’s owner families. Golfers teed off at Spanish Bay on Wednesday, May 10th for a practice round of golf before the big tournament the following day at the Pebble Beach Golf Links. After a long two-days of golf, guests gathered for the Awards Banquet and Ceremony Thursday evening, where we held our raffle events, a live auction, and announced our tournament winners. Our theme this year was Broadway, with inspiration coming from the hit Broadway musical 42nd Street, and guests dressed in their favorite Broadway musical inspired costumes. Employees from Nationwide Boiler all dressed in Hamilton era attire, and it was nothing less than a grand event! 

Congratulations to this year's winners! Jake Cushard, NBI Founder Dick Bliss' great-grandson, took home the Low Gross Championship for the second year in a row. Jack Oliver of ADCO Companies took home the trophy in our Handicap Division, and Mohan Singhal of Porter Boiler took home the trophy for our Callaway Division. Jake Cushard also won the competition for Closest to the Pin, and Chris Lorenz of Simoneau Sterling won the Longest Drive Competition. As for the big winner of our raffle for 1 ounce of gold, which we are sure everyone is curious about, that went home with Grant Carter from ADCO Companies. 

But the biggest winners of all at this event are our much-deserving beneficiaries, Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area and the ABMA's Randy Rawson Scholarship Fund. All of the hard work and time it takes to coordinate this event is worth it, because we are doing it for a good cause.

Founded in 1984 and one of the largest chapters nationwide, Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area is a non-profit organization that fulfills the wishes of children between the ages of 2 ½ and 18 who have been diagnosed with critical illnesses. The organization has granted more than 8,500 wishes to date. The ABMA’s Rawson Scholarship Fund was started for the promotion of careers in boiler engineering and fabrication and each year the organization awards multiple individual scholarships to applicants that are sponsored by an ABMA member company. The ABMA is making strides with their scholarship fund and other initiatives to help strengthen and grow the future of the boiler industry. 

We couldn't be more thankful to be able to continue this tradition of raising funds and giving back while enjoying the breathtaking views of Pebble Beach. Thank you to everyone who participated and supported the event and helped us reach record-breaking numbers again this year!
