What a beautiful day we had for our Fall Golf, Crab & Steak Feast Event held Thursday, October 5th, at the Odessa National Golf Club in Townsend. It was a sold out crowd and the golfers were rearing to go after picking up their boxed lunches, cigars (if desired) & golf carts which had their goody bags waiting for them. We had a shotgun start at noon and off they went.
As the golfers finished, they came into the big tent where the drinks and food awaited them. There was plenty of crabs, steak, drinks, and company to go around.
Once the crowd settled down, it was time to make some announcements. Jim McCulley, HBA/DE President, thanked our amazing sponsors as well as our awesome golf committee. Jeff Haggerty, Golf Committee Chair, spoke next. He also thanked our sponsors as well as our incredible volunteers, and our generous donors of the goody bag items and prizes. He awarded first place to the team from Energy Services Group (Congratulations),
followed by the second place and last place teams, the 50/50 which the winner received $745, plus other prizes such as a yeti tumbler, yeti cooler with beer, golf gift certificates, and gift certificates for Conceal Carry class.
We had a special guest at the event this year, Mariano "Sandman" Rivera, who is a former Yankees Baseball Player. Scott Morris, of Palram Americas, invited Mariano to golf with the HBA/DE. Scott purchased a golf bag to be signed by Mariano and auctioned it off to raise much needed funds for Puerto Rico. The winning bid was $1600 belonging to Steve Arnold of Engery Services Group. Other members also donated money to the cause. Way to go HBA/DE. Mariano, then stayed after dinner for pictures. He was a great sport.
We hope everyone had a great time. These events can't be successful without our golf committee, our many sponsors, donors, volunteers, and of course the golfers. Thank you to the following sponsors/donors:
