Golfers Participate in 18-Hole Scramble at Maderas Golf Club to Benefit La Jolla Family House in San Diego
One hundred twenty-eight golfers and over 50 Hensel Phelps volunteers teed off for a cause at the Maderas Golf Club in Poway, California on October 31, 2018. Presented by title sponsor Flood & Peterson, the Hensel Phelps Annual Halloween Charity Golf Tournament was made possible by generous support from all participants, raising over $110K. Proceeds from the event will benefit the La Jolla Family House in San Diego.
In addition to Flood & Peterson, other major sponsors were ACCO Engineered Systems, Berg Electric, Brady SoCal, California Sheet Metal, Cosco Fire Protection, Dynalectric, Helix Electric, Inc., Lankford & Associates, Morrow-Meadows Corporation, Pacific Coast Glazing, Inc., Pacific Coast Iron, and Pan-Pacific Mechanical.
With the mission of “complete player experience,” Hensel Phelps, Maderas Golf Club, and golfing participants arrived before sunrise in Halloween costumes and were greeted with breakfast burritos, coffee, and a Bloody-Mary bar. Upon registration, the participants were given a generous voucher for Under Armour and Titleist swag where hundreds of different golf items such as golf bags, polos, socks, and hats were on display.
The participants teed off at 8 a.m. sharp. Along the course were themed and interactive stations where the golfers could get to know Hensel Phelps and participate in an array of activities that included Star Wars themed drone racing, NASCAR themed RC Car racing, a camouflage themed nerf gun competition, dice games, and life-sized golf pong.
Prizes were given for Best Team Halloween Costumes, Longest Drive and Closest to the Pin contests, best overall score, and a new category–most honest score. Hensel Phelps held a raffle, offering 35-prizes with a value of over $10,000. In addition to raffles, there were tiered prizes for each sponsorship level including koozies, ProV1’s, Callaway Hats, PitchFix Divot Tools, and socks from Bombas.
A heartfelt thank-you goes out to the sponsors and volunteers who helped make this charity golf tournament a successful fundraising event.
