Nationwide Boiler's 41st Annual Charity Golf Tournament Results

Nationwide Boiler's 41st Annual Charity Golf Tournament was held early this summer in May. We are happy to report another success with nearly $54,000 raised in support of the ABMA's Randy Rawson Scholarship Fund and Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area!

After two years without our "normal" in-person event, our group was welcomed back to Pebble Beach with some surprisingly sunny weather and it was a great time had by all. The event began with a practice round at the Spyglass Hill Golf Course followed by tournament play at the world-famous Pebble Beach Golf Links. Golfers and guests visited from across the US and Canada to support this worthwhile cause.

Our team worked hard to raise funds through various sponsorship opportunities in addition to raffles, an online auction, and other fundraising activities throughout the two-day event. A big contgratulations to our tournament winners this year: Allison Day (Nationwide Boiler) for the Women’s Division, Miles Freeman (HTS, Inc.) for the Handicap Division, Jordan Cole (Cole Industrial) for the Callaway Division, and Jake Cushard (Nationwide Boiler) who took home this year's Low Gross trophy. NBI Tournament Reps

$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!

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.

Food for Thought

With the holidays just around the corner, Nationwide Boiler was inspired to collect food donations to help fight hunger in our local communities. We just wrapped up our 2nd Annual Holiday Food Drive, this time supporting the local food banks in both Fremont, CA and Washougal, WA. Our offices collected the most needed items requested by the Alameda County Food Bank and Inter-Faith Treasure House. Our goals were set to surpass the amount of food collected from last year, and the results were positive. Pacific Combustion was able to collect over 10 bags in Washougal, and in Fremont we filled four barrels full of food. Each of these Food Bank provided barrels are equivalent to about 125lbs of food, if filled to the top. Four full barrels means we donated roughly 500lbs of food along with the added amount from Washington. Way to go team!

Inter-Faith Treasure House has been in business for over 49 years and has provided food and assistance to Camas and Washougal residents in need. Majority of the business is funded and runs with the help of volunteers and donations. Treasure House administers several outreach programs for families in crisis and the food we have donated is going to help support these families. 

The Alameda County Community Food Bank or “ACCFB” distributes millions of healthy meals every year, and they are on the forefront of new approaches to ending hunger and poverty. For over 30 years they have stood by the belief that food is a basic human right and no one should worry about their next meal. The estimated 500lbs of food donated will go directly to the ACCFB and contribute towards their mission statement of ending hunger and poverty. We are always encouraged to see Nationwide employees come together to  support a good cause. The multiple bags and barrels we filled will fill the bellies of many in need.

Nationwide is always looking for opportunities to lend a helping hand and contribute to local nonprofits. Our company was proud to help contribute to these efforts and encourage others to donate as well. If you are interested, please research local food drives, food banks, or other nonprofit organizations in need.
