UA Local 853 Annual Golf Tournament 2015
On Friday, June 12th, 2015, UA Local 853 hosted our Annual Golf Tournament at Bradford Highlands Golf Club.
Though the weather was not on our side and the rain came pouring down after just one hole, spirits remained high at the social gathering. Bradford Highlands Golf Club quickly accommodated an early dinner, and the men had a chance to catch up with one another over a cold brew.
Attendees were able to purchase raffle tickets for a charity draw, with amazing prizes like shop vacs, power tools, and even a flat screen TV. All attendees also went home with a Milwaukee M12 Tool-Only Radio, courtesy of Milwaukee.
All proceeds from the tournament will go directly to Juvenile Diabetes, and UA 853 is proud to have raised $2350.00 from raffle ticket sales alone. A big thank you to the generous contributions of all who donated to this great cause.
We look forward to seeing you all again next year, and we’ll cross our fingers for some sunshine!
