Stewartstown, PA (PRWEB) August 31, 2012
Oakworks CEO, Jeffrey Riach, was recently recognized by the Stewartstown Lions Club for his continuous support of Swing for Sight, a charity fundraiser of the Stewartstown Lions Club that supports ongoing involvement in improving and preserving eye sight.
The 13th annual Swing for Sight Golf Tournament was held on Friday, August 17th at the Pleasant Valley Golf Club in Stewartstown, PA. Sponsored by the Stewartstown Lions, the annual event supports the ongoing community service of the Lions Club International and their charities. Money was raised to support their contributions to community affairs and other humanitarian needs.
Oakworks supported the annual event, which attracted 130 golfers, through their major sponsorship contribution. Recognized for his continuous support of the charity event, Oakworks CEO, Jeff Riach said, “‘We Serve,’ are not just idle words. They are the embodiment of a spirit and generosity that has defined the Lions Club International for generations. It has been an honor and privilege for me, and the employees of Oakworks, to support their ongoing charitable efforts.”
Oakworks has had a long history of supporting charitable causes, including ongoing collaborations with Skin Cancer awareness organization The World Skin Project, ecological agroforestry group Trees for the Future, and sustainable spa movement The Green Spa Network. Riach went on to explain that Oakworks is drawn to causes that support the massage, spa and medical industries that have been integral to its success. “Most companies don’t look at the big picture when it comes to conducting business within their respective industries. They focus only on their bottom line, without considering the overall state of the industry itself. Oakworks as a company is built upon the idea that if you work to support the whole system, rather than just your immediate interests, you become an integral, irreplaceable part of that system.” Riach said.
The Lions Club leadership commented that, “We look forward to continuing our tournament in our efforts to help others in whatever way we can while continuing to follow the Lions Club motto – WE SERVE. The ongoing support of Mr. Riach and other local community leaders makes it possible to continue our charitable efforts.”
