Nationwide Boiler Inc. celebrated the 35th anniversary of its annual charity golf tournament by donating a record amount to the American Boiler Manufacturers Association’s Randy Rawson Scholarship Fund. The $60,000 represents the largest amount ever donated to the ABMA, according to the company.
The Fremont, Calif.-based boiler manufacturer has supported the ABMA scholarship fund for three years. The fund was created to aid young college- and trade-school-bound men and women pursuing a career in fields related to boiler engineering, manufacturing, service and repair.
The tournament took place May 7 with nearly 60 golfers at the Pebble Beach Golf Links. More than 100 guests attended an awards banquet and reception that included a $1,000 raffle as well as live and silent auctions displaying items donated by Nationwide Boiler’s customers, vendors, colleagues and representatives. Additional profits for the fund were collected through cart and hole sponsorships and mulligan sales the day of the tournament.
