Redondo Beach, CA (PRWEB) September 23, 2013
On September 13, 2013, 6th Street Consulting (6SC) hosted their 3rd Annual 6SC Client Recognition and Charity Fundraising Golf Tournament at the Los Verdes Golf Course in Palos Verdes, CA. With 12 teams participating, the golf tournament was aimed to recognize 6SC clients in the Southern California area and raise donations for the USO, a nonprofit organization that has served troops for over 70 years providing entertainment, innovative programs and services at airports and military bases around the world. This year, 6SC management pledged to donate all tournament proceeds to the USO and after finalizing contributions, they are happy to announce over $3000 in contributions were raised to support the USO.
As tradition, the golf tournament began with a putting contest where 6SC clients and channel partners warmed up their putts before heading out to the golf course. Golfers were also provided with complimentary range balls to practice their drives before teeing off. Midway through the tournament, golfers were greeted by USO volunteers at the 10th hole where they were offered the opportunity to make individual contributions to the organization. Golfers were also able to purchase one foot string to add to their putts and mulligans with all the proceeds going to the USO.
To cap off the day full of ocean views and cold drinks, a 19th hole raffle event was held where over ten prizes were raffled off, including a Bushnell laser rangefinder, a foursome at Los Verdes Golf Course, and a couple “mystery prize” gag gifts. All in all, the golf tournament was a great philanthropic effort made possible by all the golfers and USO volunteers. 6SC is proud to support such a great organization and look forward to next year’s golf tournament.
