Ferguson hosted its second annual charity shootout golf tournament at Tiburon Golf Club in Naples on July 17. All proceeds of the event went to Builders Care, the nonprofit arm of the Lee Building Industry Association (BIA) to help provide emergency construction services to elderly and disabled Lee County homeowners in need.
More than 100 participants vied for the naming rights of top team and the winning prizes of four HP mini computers. Raffles and other activities at the tournament also helped to raise money for Builders Care.
After the scores were tallied, Ferguson representatives presented a check for $5,283 to Heidi Taulman, executive director of Lee BIA Builders Care.
“We are so thrilled to be involved with Ferguson again for this awesome event,” said Taulman. “We are grateful for their support.”
Sponsors of the event included Ferguson, Moen, Jenn-Air, Franke, ThermaSol, Mid Continent Cabinetry, Oatey, Jacuzzi, Basco Shower Enclosures and Progress Lighting.
