Nationwide Boiler Raises More Than $63,000 At 43rd Annual Charity Golf Tournament!

Last month Nationwide Boiler hosted our 43rd Annual Charity Golf Tournament at the renowned Pebble Beach Golf Links and it was another great success! Drawing in participants from across the nation, the event gathered a diverse and enthusiastic crowd ready to support two great causes.

The tournament kicked off with a practice round and a scramble competition at Poppy Hills Golf Course, where the golfers enjoyed pleasant sunshine throughout the day. As evening approached, golfers and guests gathered for a welcome reception to enjoy drinks and appetizers, socialize, and purchase tickets for the highly anticipated raffle for 1 oz. of gold. Our tournament round took place the following morning at Pebble Beach Golf Links followed by a Hawaiian Luau themed awards banquet and buffet dinner later in the evening.

At the awards banquet, guests donned floral Hawaiian attire with real orchid leis while enjoying live island music by the Ho ‘Omana Trio. Guests also participated in online and live auction events as well as our unique Deck of Cards Raffle.  Don Thiry was our big winner that night, taking home the raffle prize of 1 oz. of gold in addition to having the winning card for the Deck of Cards Raffle! However, in a surprising twist of events, he sold his winning card for $200 and the remaining $800 prize was generously donated back to the charities. These acts highlight the sportsmanship and goodwill that make our tournament special.

In addition to the fun and fundraising activities of the banquet that evening, Nationwide Boiler’s President and CEO, Larry Day, announced the winners of the tournament. Matt Whittington of Hurst Boiler took home the Callaway Flight Championship, Mitch Frank of HTS took home the Handicap Flight Championship, and Geoff Wilkinson Jr. of GT Wilkinson Companies took home the Low Gross Championship. Nationwide Boiler’s Jack Valentine took home the award for Closest to the Pin, and, for the first time in the history of this tournament, Longest Drive was awarded to a women golfer, Emily Forth of Tulsa Heaters Midstream.

With the aim of benefiting two impactful causes, Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area and ABMA’s Randy Rawson Scholarship Fund, the tournament was a resounding success with a total amount raised exceeding $63,000! This achievement was made possible by the support of roughly 100 attendees and the generous contributions of nearly 60 sponsors and donors. Nationwide Boiler is proud to continue raising funds for these two great organizations, and we extend heartfelt gratitude to everyone who supported the event this year.

Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area is all about making dreams come true for children facing critical illnesses, giving them unforgettable experiences and much-needed hope.  This chapter serves 17 counties in Northern California and has granted over 9,500 wishes to date, providing approximately 350 life-changing wishes each year. The ABMA’s Randy Rawson Scholarship Fund supports students aiming for careers in the boiler industry. This fund plays a crucial role in nurturing the next generation of professionals in this important field by offering scholarships that ease the financial burden of education.

Save the Date! Our 44th Annual Pebble Beach Charity Golf Tournament is scheduled for May 7 – 8, 2025 at Pebble Beach and Spanish Bay. As we reflect on the memories made and the differences we created, we extend our deepest thanks to all who participated in making this event a success. We look forward to another incredible tournament next year!

BOILER2024: Shaping the Future of the Boiler Industry

Every two years, the American Boiler Manufacturers Association (ABMA) hosts the only BOILER focused conference and tradeshow, a gathering that serves as a catalyst for innovation, education, and collaboration within the boiler industry. While only the second of many future events, BOILER2024 lived up to its reputation bringing together industry leaders, business professionals, end-users and stakeholders to discuss the latest trends, technologies, and challenges facing the boiler industry.

As the demand for energy efficiency, sustainability, and reliability continues to grow, the insights and innovations shared at BOILER2024 are crucial for shaping the industry's response to these evolving needs. One of the standout features of BOILER2024 was its comprehensive lineup of educational sessions. These sessions covered a wide range of topics from emerging technologies and regulatory updates to best practices in boiler operation and maintenance. The knowledge shared during these sessions not only informed attendees but also inspired new ideas and approaches to addressing industry challenges.

Another notable highlight was the inaugural Women in Boiler Industry (WIBI) forum. This groundbreaking event provided a platform for women professionals in the boiler industry to connect, collaborate, and advocate for greater diversity and inclusion. By spotlighting the contributions of women in a traditionally male-dominated field, the WIBI forum underscored the importance of fostering a more inclusive workforce for the future of the industry. A big shoutout and thanks goes out to Shaunica Jayson and the entire WIBI team for cultivating this exciting initiative for the boiler industry.

And let’s not forget the ABMA’s commitment to the future generation of the boiler industry. At BOILER2024, the ABMA partnered with Pickens Technical College to engage the next generation of boiler makers. Pickens welding students created an awesome BOILER 2024 sign that was on display at the show, and the ABMA presented the college with a $5,000 to be put towards their program.

As a leading provider of boiler solutions, Nationwide Boiler was proud to participate in BOILER2024. Our exhibit booth served as a hub for networking, knowledge sharing, and showcasing our latest equipment and innovations. This included our new product spotlight, the Eagle Eye remote monitoring system, offering real-time insights and predictive analytics to optimize boiler performance and reliability. In addition, the “World's First” 200,000 lb/hr mobile feedwater system, a product of Nationwide Boiler, was also on display in the Mobile Boiler Parking Lot. This groundbreaking system represents a significant advancement in mobile boiler technology, offering unparalleled capacity, efficiency, and versatility for mobile boiler feedwater equipment.

Overall, BOILER2024 was a resounding success. From the insightful educational sessions to the groundbreaking WIBY forum, the event showcased the industry's commitment to driving positive change and shaping its future. As the boiler industry continues to evolve, events like BOILER2024 will play a crucial role in shaping its trajectory, fostering innovation, and ensuring a sustainable future for generations to come. Mark your calendars, as Nationwide Boiler looks forward to participating again at BOILER2026 in Nashville, TN!
