Fremont, CA, May 31, 2023
Nationwide Boiler Inc., a leading supplier of rental and permanent boiler equipment, emissions control systems and custom PLC-based controls, announced today the results of their 42nd Annual Charity Golf Tournament. With the support of many sponsors, donors, golfers and attendees, the event raised an impressive total of $69,639. However, with the help of a last-minute anonymous donor, the company rounded up for a record-breaking amount of $70,000 raised. All proceeds will be split and donated to Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area and the ABMA’s Randy Rawson Scholarship Program.
Larry Day, President & CEO of Nationwide Boiler Inc., stated, “I am proud that our company has been able to continue this 42-year tradition of raising funds to benefit organizations that do so much for our community. What originally started with 8 golfers and 20 guests has now grown to an event with more than 50 golfers and 100 guests each year. I am grateful to work in an industry with so many individuals that share our desire to continually give back to those in need.” Attendees traveled from across the US and Canada to attend Nationwide Boiler’s 42nd Annual Charity Golf Tournament in Pebble Beach, California. Funds were raised through various sponsorships and monetary donations as well as raffles, a virtual and a live auction, and other fundraising activities throughout the two-day event.
The tournament included a practice round at the Links at Spanish Bay and the tournament round at the Pebble Beach Golf Links. Jake Cushard, great-grandson of Nationwide Boiler’s Founder, Dick Bliss, took home the Low Gross Championship for the second year in a row. Jack Oliver of ADCO Companies took home the Handicap Division trophy, and Mohan Singhal of Porter Boiler Company took home the Callaway Division trophy. Nationwide Boiler also announced next year’s event, scheduled for May 8-9, 2024, at the Pebble Beach Golf Links.
