The Colony, TX (PRWEB) March 31, 2017
On the afternoon of March 30, Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP) hosted its second annual Charity Golf Classic at The Tribute in The Colony, with proceeds going to The YMCA, Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS), Troops First Foundation and 22Kill.
Attendees were treated to beautiful weather as 144 golfers took to the course for the shotgun start of the scramble tournament. The sold-out tournament was focused on raising funds to support veterans and at-risk youth. Over the last year, AP has also been involved in Hearts and Hammers, The Warran Center Toy Drive, Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center and many other efforts to assist non-profit organizations in our community.
Through various sponsorship and individual donations, AP was able to secure sizeable donations which will help to provide financial assistance to support veterans and youth in our communities. AP will be scheduling individual ceremonies with The YMCA, BBBS, Troops First Foundation and 22Kill in the coming weeks to make official donations to each of these organization.
“This event is just one of the many ways we seek to carry out our Vision “to build a better tomorrow” by giving back to the communities where we live and work,” said Corbett Nichter, Senior Vice President with AP. “This golf tournament reflects the generosity of AP’s partners throughout the DFW area and beyond and, collectively, will be able to make a material impact on these organization and the individuals whom they serve.”
