Giving Back at Nationwide Boiler's 38th Annual Charity Golf Tournament

"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." ―Winston Churchill

NBI PB Golf Tourn 2018 110
Nationwide Boiler’s 38th Annual Charity Golf Tournament was one for the books. We started off the week with a practice round at the Spyglass Hill Golf Course, with 48 golfers competing in a scramble and ‘Bushwood Ball’ competition. This led us to our welcoming banquet where guests dressed up in themed attire, based off of the movie “Caddyshack”. With gophers and baby ruth candy bars at each table, and a sign that read, “Welcome to the Bushwood Country Club” upon entry to the banquet hall, the theme was in full effect.


Guests enjoyed drinks, mingled, and purchased raffle tickets during the cocktail hour in the new Fairway One Room at Pebble Beach. Dinner consisted of a clam bake buffet with mouthwatering lobster, oysters, prime rib, and more, followed by a number of choices for desert. At the end of the night, President Larry Day, or Judge Smales for the evening, announced the scramble & ‘Bushwood Ball’ winners, along with our big winner that evening, Steve Graves from Campbell-Sevey. Mr. Graves won the “Raffle of a Lifetime” prize; a golf stay & play package at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, including $600 in airfare.

Bright and early the next morning hole signs were set out on the green and guests arrived to check-in for the big day of golf. Golfers had the opportunity to buy in for the “Best Ball” prize (a 50/50 style competition), purchase mulligans, and receive their thank-you gift, a Pebble Beach golf towel. As foursomes finished up at the 18th-hole, scorecards were collected and golfers had time to relax and socialize at the scoring room as other foursomes completed the course. That evening, over 100 guests arrived at the Pebble Beach Room for the awards banquet and ceremony, where additional fundraising activities were held. This included a card raffle with a $1,000 prize, and both silent and live auction events.

The food was delicious, the speakers were fantastic, and the event was a huge success. At the end of the evening, Nationwide Boiler’s Bill Testa announced our tournament winners: Miles Freeman from HTS brought home first place in the callaway division, Mike Moore from MG Sales brought home first place in the Handicap division, and our overall low gross winner was Jordan Bliss. The big winners, however, were Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area and the ABMA Scholarship fund. Nationwide President, Larry Day, Nationwide Boiler 2018 281announced at the end of the night that we raised at least $50,000 for the charities. Our final donation amount was $51,435, and a check was cut for each charity in the amount of $25,717.50.

It is truly a joy hosting such a great event with such friendly and generous people. We look forward to continuing this tradition for many years to come.

Save the date! Next year’s tournament is scheduled for May 8 – 9, 2019 and will coincide with Pebble Beach’s Centennial Anniversary and the return of the US Open Championship in June, which will make the course conditions for our tournament much tougher (i.e. narrow fairways and longer rough). It is surely an event you won’t want to miss!

Nationwide Boiler Celebrates 35 Years Giving Back to the Community

Nationwide Boiler's 35th Annual Charity Golf Tournament was a great success, with a donation of $60,000 to the ABMA Randy Rawson Scholarship Fund. The ABMA noted that this was the largest amount ever donated to the ABMA!

Nearly 50 golfers arrived at Pebble Beach early Wednesday to take part in a practice round at Poppy Hills Golf Course, followed by our traditional Clam Bake Buffet reception that night. Tournament play commenced on Thursday at the Pebble Beach Golf Links. Golfers raved about the scenic view and great experience offered by both courses. 

Thursday night over 100 guests joined Nationwide for a Mardi Gras themed awards banquet and reception to celebrate 35 years donating to a charitable cause. The men's low gross winner, Justin Hoose, took home a beautiful crystal trophy while Angela McGowan took home the first place crystal for the women. A $1,000 card raffle was held, as well as a silent and live auction containing various items generously donated by Nationwide Boiler's customers, vendors, representatives and colleagues. Additional funds were collected through cart and hole sponsors, as well as mulligan sales the day of the tournament. 

We hope that all who attended enjoyed their time at Pebble Beach, and want to thank all involved once again for your support. 

Next year we will continue our tradition with tournament golf at the Pebble Beach Golf Links and lodging at the Inn at Spanish Bay. Save the date - May 4 - 5, 2016. We hope to see you there!

Nationwide Boiler's 33rd Annual Charity Golf Tournament Donates Record Amount

Earlier this month Nationwide boiler broke yet another record, donating $40,000 to the American Boiler Manufacturer Association (ABMA) Scholarship Fund! This record amount was due to the many generous donations made by our representatives, customers, industry reps, vendors and friends in the form of cart sponsors, hole sponsors, live and silent auction items, and cash.

The 33rd Annual Charity Golf Tournament was a two-day event held in Pebble Beach, CA. This year, the group enjoyed a practice round at Spanish Bay and a sports themed Clam Bake reception on the first night of the event. Attendees supported their favorite professional or college sports teams by "wearing their colors" and even had fun with some competitive rivalries. The second day consisted of tournament round golf played at the renowned Pebble Beach Golf Links, followed by snacks and beverages overlooking the 18th hole. We ended the night with dinner, an awards banquet, and live and silent auction events. 

Overall the tournament was a major success. We were able to support the future of the boiler industry while maintaining relationships and enjoying a good time. Nationwide Boiler cannot extend enough gratitude for the help and support of our generous sponsors and attendees. We look forward to another successful tournament next year!
