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!
